About the Logo
Gulbarga is a historic place which has a strong mystical undercurrent in the sense of being the origin of the social reformation movement of the great 12th century saint Basweshwara and also the seat of the great Sufi saint Khwaja Bande Nawaz.
The university keenly identifies itself with these universal symbols of humanism and harmony who were also responsible for the general trend of education in the sense of enlightenment and upliftment of the masses.
These ideas have found expression through the famous and old symbol of the ‘Tree of Life’ which is taken as the basic motif for the logo and expressed in contemporary terms. The figurine at the bottom, representing the scholar, is seen reaching out to life in all its expansiveness and leading to knowledge and enlightenment.
