My Vision for Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee University, Ranchi

Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee University, Ranchi is a synthesis of a legacy of 92 years of hard work, dedication and incomparable team work in the area of academic excellence that incessantly worked together under the banner of Ranchi College, Ranchi.

Hardly a year ago, that is, on Tuesday, April 11, 2017, this college was upgraded as a Unitary State University under RUSA Program. I find myself privileged enough to serve this institution earlier as a Professor and now a Vice-Chancellor. Knowing its fabric from interior to exterior, I know the responsibility that we have to shoulder on together in coming years is high.

As we have become the cynosure of academic arena of the state, we know that we have to carve out a niche for ourselves. We aspire to turn it into the most sought-after University of Central India. Also, we have to be ready to cater the massive pool of the students in coming years. To march ahead with all gravity maintaining the centripetal force attached with its legacy and let the University levitate towards zenith, we set forth the following goals:

  1. To expand not only in infrastructure but also in setting the curriculum as such based on multi- disciplinary branches of education maintaining the local, national and International requirements.
