Meet The Vice Chancellor
The creation of Swami Rama Himalayan University, yet another extraordinary achievement of Himalayan Institute Hospital Trust (HIHT) has been the joyful upshot of a conjunction of circumstances, which overcame formidable challenges.
Primarily a brainchild of our Gurudev H.H. Dr. Swami Rama, the university has been envisioned as a service-dedicated organisation. The promoting society that has helped maintain the strength and character of the University has ensured a spiritual and social core, which will prove to be a real treasure in times to come. A competent system at the helm had already laid the foundations in the fields of medical education, paramedical and nursing education, healthcare sector and social out- reach activities for more than two decades. And now with the creation of the University the initiative is poised for greater heights.
Over the years, the parent body has been responsibly involved in paving the path for thousands of medical, paramedical and nursing professionals, to excel in the mission of serving humankind. To carry forward the legacy of our reverend Gurudev, Swami Rama Himalayan University has a vital responsibility. The sprawling campus, set in the salubrious environs of the foothills of Himalaya Mountains, boasts of remarkable faculty resource and facilities. It offers the right environment for aspirants to plunge into a career of their choice and ultimately to connect with life of high priority. With an interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, trans-disciplinary approach, we stand energized to excel in the light of our own reinforced efforts and experiences.
All our students, without exception can hope to explore an entirely new world of co-curricular opportunity. Ultimately we hope to shape our students into exceptional leaders, technocrats, academicians, scientists, inventors and value-based professionals.
As the Vice Chancellor of Swami Rama Himalayan University, I extend my warm welcome to all those who want to choose a life of self-discovery, challenge and superior value-system.
