In today's world, globalization is rapidly increasing, bringing with it expanded personal mobility; access to knowledge across borders; increased demand for higher education, growing worldwide investment; and increased needs continuing education. The twenty first century undoubtedly belongs to the men and women of strength and excellence in professional fields.
I staunchly believe that freedom of individual development is the basis of democracy. Intellectual progress demands the maintenance of spirit of free enquiry. The pursuit & practice of truth regardless of consequences should be only ambition of universities. All education is expected to be liberal. Education, one of the human resource development strategy, is a powerful tool for peaceful social transformation and for overall development and prosperity of any nation. It should be free from shackles of ignorance, prejudice and unfounded belief. Education is an important index of human development.
Higher Education is indeed a vital tool for intellectual, cultural, aesthetic development and a means for achieving wider social aspirations. The responsibility of Universities in the context of changing scenario is not only confined to imparting education but also to forecast the future needs of economy. The National Knowledge Commission has also stressed that there is an urgent need for massive expansion in the field of higher education because the proportion of our population, in the relevant age group, that enters the world of higher education, is about 7% only, while in developed countries it is upto 85% and at the same time, it is important to raise quality of higher education. Keeping in view contemporary needs, also that higher education should be accessible to one and all. Education is the fundamental mechanism for social inclusion, growth through the creation of more opportunities.
We at Singhania University are committed to achieve these many objectives by making it an example of excellence comparable to the best in the world. To make higher education accessible to poor people we are initiating novel schemes of scholarships to meritorious students and loan facilities.
Deeply inspired by my mother to contribute towards the progress and prosperity of the coming generations, the Singhania University, Pacheri Bari has been established to nurture and cultivate young minds in the pursuit of knowledge. Committed to excellence, we seek to educate our students to be responsible, forward looking and creative citizens of the world. They should start earning while learning and soon after completing their studies, they should be able to employ themselves gainfully either as self-employed or are well equipped and trained to get employment globally. The curriculum and practical training in the campus, therefore, always keep in view the emerging global opportunities in business and employment. Shortly, when service sector is also opened up by WTO, movements of service providers from one country to another country shall become almost free. Due to negative growth population in developed countries, demand for educated professionals is increasing day by day and our goal is to provide such education as may suit the emerging employment opportunities globally. We, being a University Campus, have got the freedom to design our courses and practical training in a way that would enable the students to get gainfully employed not only in India but globally.
The University offers a unique academic environment of continuous influence and interaction considered essential for the enrichment of mind and the body with the maximum of speed and minimum of cost. Enthusiastic efforts of the students, dedication of the faculty and active co-operation of the parents is making our movement towards excellence and innovation smooth and speedy. The University shall always endeavor to emerge as an excellent launching ground for success, helping students to reach the pinnacle of glory in the rapidly developing world. Our goal is to make our students global citizens on completion of their higher education capable of establishing themselves in any part of the world to lead a happy & prosperous life.
May God be with us in all our endeavours.
