Academic excellence of any University depends upon its ‘Associates’- Faculty and Staff members. It is therefore of utmost importance that due care is taken in hiring of its Associates with adequate qualification, requisite experience and who can take the University to its ultimate goal.
We believe a positive academic ambience is a great facilitator for bringing out the best from its Associates. Although, it does take years to build on positive academic ambience, certain institute policies can have strong impact in promoting the same. It is DIT University’s endeavour that its judicious HR policy can serve as a powerful mechanism to enhance comfort level, sense of belongingness and positivity in outlook and add to the sense of responsibility and commitment of employees.
DIT University follows the prevailing UGC norms & recommendation of 6th pay commission for ascertaining qualifications and experience related to recruitment, promotion and salary scale for its Associates. In order to attract excellent faculty from IITs, NITs and other reputed institutions, The University offers special packages which are at par with best Universities in the country.
We at DIT University always encourage research & creativity and continuously motivate our faculty to undertake various research projects and / or publish their articles in reputed journals by providing them all the assistance be it financial or otherwise.
The DIT University (DITU) endeavours to maintain a work environment that fosters personal and professional growth for every employee. Maintaining such an environment is the responsibility of every employee. The University Authorities and Officers have the additional responsibility to lead in a manner which fosters a healthy working environment based on mutual respect, discipline and a high level of dedication and commitment towards the goals of the University.
It is, therefore, the responsibility of the University and all its employees to:
- Foster cooperation and communication among each other

Professional Exposure and Development for Employees
