Receiving the award Acharya Dhanwant Singh, Chancellor APU, said, "All learning was closely linked to nature and to life and not confined to memorizing some information. The modern education system was brought to India by Lord Thomas Babington Macaulay in the 1830s. The curriculum was confined to 'modern' subjects such as science and mathematics and subjects like metaphysics and philosophy were considered unnecessary. Teaching was confined to classrooms and the link with nature was broken."
Apex Professional University intends to restore the Gurukul education system by integrating of Bloom's Taxonomy method of teaching and Information Technology. APU is also on an aggressive expansion mode with plans to introduce and promote Indian sciences such as ayurveda, astrology, naturopathy, yoga and vastu shastra to name a few.
