About Global Jamia Alumni Network
Alumni are an institution’s brand ambassadors, carrying their core values of excellence, lifelong learning of inclusiveness and diversity all around the world. The ethos and character of the institutions are expressed into their professional and social life style. Alumni can therefore, play a crucial role not only in spreading the name of the institution but also raise the quality of the institution that they hail from. They can provide sustainability to the parent institutions through both by imparting training in innovative skills to their Alma mater and by extra mural funding which are so necessary for the growth and development of any modern institution.
Global Jamia Alumni Network (GJAN) has been conceived by the Hon’ble vice chancellor Prof Talat Ahmad as an effort to bring together the Jamia alumni present in different parts of the globe. This will re-establish and reinstate the placental cord between the alumni and the university to facilitate cultural as well as professional exchanges for mutual growth and development.
The GJAN of Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) shall promote the interest, welfare and educational aims of JMI and its alumni, establish and maintain a mutually beneficial relationship between JMI and its alumni, and encourage lifelong engagement of Jamia Millia Islamia alumni with their fellow alumni and the university community.
The GJAN of JMI shall provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas between JMI and its alumni and shall seek to develop programs involving alumni in various areas of services. Wherever appropriate, the GJAN will cooperate in conceptualising, instituting and furthering policies and programs of JMI and may recommend other policies and programs designed to promote the welfare of JMI and its alumni.
These purposes of the alumni association of JMI shall remain in effect as long as JMI remains organised exclusively for charitable, scientific, literary or educational purposes as per the existing act of the Indian Parliament which granted central university status to JMI.
