About us

The Swadharma programme has been developed by Auroville's Purnam Centre for Integrality. Formally Auroville is a foundation, an institution of Higher Education under the Ministry of Education, Government of India. Its legal framework has been laid out in an act of the Indian Parliament in 1988 known as Auroville Foundation Act. This act of the Parliament provides Auroville with a special status to embark upon a bold experiment in education unprecedented in the country as well as the world. This makes Auroville radically different from conventional universities or other institutions of higher education.

The Purnam Centre has been set up by Auroville Campus Initiative - ACI - (https://aci.auroville.org) to offer high quality transformative educational programmes to the world. The Swadharma course is running since 2016.


Other than Swadharma, Auroville offers a wide range of learning opportunities and ACI has brought them all under one platform for easy access to aspiring students. It can be found here:
