The Uva Wellassa University will develop links and affiliations with organizations related to the disciplines of study at the University to enhance the value of academic experience imparted to the students. Further it will provide practical experience and opportunities to deal with society (farmers, private institutions, government institutions). The affiliations would no doubt bring value to such institutions as well. Particularly UWU would conduct research relevant to the institution and would thus provide high value services to society. The researchers in institutions would get the opportunity to share experience through teaching of students and enhance their knowledge.
