The university was named after Gandhi - GITAM (Gandhi Institute of Technology and Management and subsequently upgraded to a University) with a view to uphold and instill his values. By virtue of its 36 plus years of meritorious service in the educational sector, it has today, carved a niche for itself and gained reputation as a learning centre for creating an academically enriching and learning experience for the stake holders. It recognizes talent and even offers a fee waiver to meritorious students.
The management takes stringent measures to ensure a peaceful atmosphere and safe ambience on the campus. In case there is a situation wherein the student/faculty feels let down or humiliated due to some callous comment of someone or if he/she feels that they are being targeted by a particular faculty/peers due to their extremist and biased belief in caste, the person can lodge a complaint in the prescribed form that will reach a senior University official, which will be followed by an enquiry for justice to be delivered.
