Shoolini University is all set to pick up pace and break new records in the field of research and education, besides extending its reach by opening off-campus centres in Himachal Pradesh and setting up a university in Punjab.
Speaking on the eve of his 80th birthday on February 18, which is also celebrated as Prerna Diwas, Vice Chancellor Prof P.K. Khosla said the university was on the right track to achieve its goal of being among the best global universities.
Providing data on various parameters, Prof Khosla said the university was already rubbing shoulders with the best in the world in several areas of research and innovation. Within India, it was rated very high in filing research-based patents and had achieved a high H-Index of 55.
He said the university placed equal emphasis in maintaining a high standard of teaching in liberal arts, engineering, pharmacy and other fields of education. Its unique SPRINT programme, which honed the soft skills of students and was credit based, was being replicated by other institutions, he said.
The founder Vice Chancellor said the University was now planning to construct a full-fledged Meditation and Yoga School as well as a Naturopathy and Health Care Centre, along with an Ayurveda College and Hospital. He believed a good Yoga School was the need of the hour for our nation. In the coming 10 years, this would be his contribution to the society.
Talking about the roadblocks he faced, Prof Khosla said, one must never be disturbed with the immediate results of any situation but have faith in God and focus on good Karma.
Now that the University had reached a certain stability, Prof Khosla planned on strengthening his idea of “Freeship”, and sponsor intelligent children’s education who lacked financial support, so that they could reach their full potential and recognised their self-esteem.
He also informed how the university had managed to generate 500 to 600 jobs for the locals and promised that it would only go higher in the coming years.
