The university is temple of learning. This learning is about understanding the secrets of nature at macro and micro level so that individual and community life can be lived maintaining harmony with nature. According to Swami Vivekananda “Education is the process by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased and intellect is sharpened, as a result of which one can stand on one’s own feet; and that a Teacher’s sacred duty is to invoke the spirit of inquiry in his pupils”.
University is a place where different subjects are taught. Best of the thoughts and new updates horizons of knowledge are explored, reviewed, reassessed and are reinterpreted in the changing context of time. Scholars from different areas get together for serious deliberations on different subjects; they exchange their views, apprehensions and conclusions. These views are validated and revalidated in order to reach consensus to formulate combined wisdom.
Education liberates the mind. While we are anxious to see that the quality of education given to the student is high, we also pay equal attention to bring about the overall development of their personalities. There are abundant opportunities for our students for given expression to their literacy and talent as well as sportsmanship. We are committed to see that the student coming out of portals of this University will be well studies and trained. We expect them to be responsible citizens and emerge as social capital of our nation. Thus, we have to undertake inward looking measures and outward looking activities for enhancing the academic visibility and social relevance while improving their own value system. Enhancing the quality of education is the task with as with prime importance.
It helps us to build the future of our dreams. With Indian demography of young in age and spirit, we have the utmost responsibility and have to ensure the quality education which is rich in value and modern in context. India has always enjoyed the status of “Vishva-guru” and is still instrumental is shaping the future of the worlds. As a teacher, we all know that academic processes are no longer confined to classroom-based curriculum. For cultivation of mind, it is essential to design appropriate learning experiences for the students. I recall the famous quote by Cristian D. Larson “believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle”.
University of Kota, Kota has 2(f) and 12(b) status of UGC and emerging as a leading University at national and international level as a centre of learning since its inception from the year 2003. Whole hearted efforts of the University are towards consolidation, expansion and diversifications, with a key thrust to emerge on the Global Map of Research and education.
With this view, sincere efforts are being made by the University through different officers and cells including Directorate of Research, PG Studies, Students’ Welfare, Proctor’s Office, UGC Cell, Women Cell IPR Cell, IT Cell, Cell of Differently Abled Persons, Counseling & Placement Cell, Online Students’ Grievance Redressal Portal to provide a platform for overall development of the students.
I assure that University is not only dedicated to transmit this collective wisdom to the coming generations but also to inspire them to achieve the pursuit of excellence by rising curiosity amongst each of the learners and help them become a better human being by developing an understanding of the center; where he himself is, and the circumference which covers the whole universe on the time-less map. I wish all success in the academic pursuits of the students of this University.
