About University
Emboldened by the overwhelming positive response of the community and the students, the management perceived a need to develop into a University, where autonomy and self reliance would place the institutions on the global map and would internally motivate them to higher levels of excellence.

The IAE sponsored the formation of a new trust, the Yenepoya University, which after due process of inspection by the University Grants Commission (UGC), was recognized by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India on 27 February 2008, vide their notification No. F.9-11/2007-U.3(A). The Yenepoya University is the first private University in the District of Dakshin Kannada (South Canara).

The University maintains its social commitment through conducting free medical, eye & dental camps, in the community. It has also adopted 2 nearby villages for comprehensive and total health care and prevention (Kotepura & Balepuni). Special attention is being given to identify and treat HIV patients. We offer total health care support to a local HIV/AIDS Care and Support Centre. The YMC also runs Prevention of Parent to Child Transmission (PPTCT) & Integrated Counseling and Testing Centre (ICTC) programmes.

The logo of the University
The Yenepoya University emblem reflects the rich ideals and the core values upon which the very foundations have been built. The colours on the shield are a salutation to the three key facets of the University - the mentor, the materials and the medium - through which this increase takes place, and are also representative of them.

Green embodies life and the giver thereof. Green is the color of paradise, the ultimate destination for all knowledge seekers. Just as the azure sky, wraps the Earth, blue symbolizes protection. Blue is synonymous with scholastic achievements and the success the institution has to its credit.

And last but not the least, grey symbolizes stability and dependability. It stands for the staunch guiding (governing) principles and discipline that our students and hence our institutions are known for.

The Shield, symbolic of a reputed seat of learning is adorned with (emblazoned with) the motto "Rabbi Zidni 'Ilma" on the ribbon below. The words in Arabic, taken from the Holy Quran, literally translate into the meaningful phrase - "Lord, increase me in knowledge" - indeed the very frame, the life plasma and the purpose of the institution, all its faculties and facilities.
