Rajya Sabha member, BK Hariprasad, has committed ₹50 lakh for the construction of the building from MP’s fund. Kota Srinivasa Poojary, Minister-in-charge of Dakshina Kannada district, has promised to bring funds from the Karnataka government for the construction of the building. He hoped that donors will come forward to fund the construction of the building for the study chair.

Yadapadithaya said the study chair has conducted more than 30 academic programmes related to the social reformer Narayana Guru since then.

The Vice-Chancellor said that the university has 19 study chairs in different fields.
