The name and logo of the university have been nominated through email voting system by the eminent cultural activists and think-tanks of the world. The institution has kept in touch with several cultural organizations which are playing vital roles in promoting and protecting the UNESCO cultural diversity.

All undergraduate students will get basic knowledge about the World Heritage Convention (1972) and the five other UNESCO Conventions (1954, 1970, 2001, 2003 and 2005) through online distance learning. This will enable them to attain a comparative learning on their own local or national heritage.
