Shoolini University has decided to establish another university, the Shoolini Yogananda University of Ancient Indian Wisdom, in Sirmour district of Himachal Pradesh.

Chief Minister Mr Jai Ram Thakur was apprised about the plans during a meeting held in Shimla on Tuesday by the top management of the university, including Chancellor Prof PK Khosla, Vice Chancellor Prof Atul Khosla, founder Trustee Mr Satish Anand and President FLSBM Mrs Saroj Khosla. 

Displaying a keen interest in the proposal, the Chief Minister enquired about the site and other details of the project. The Chancellor said the new university would study and relate modern advances with the ancient advances in science and technology, which had been sidelined by the Mughal and English rulers over the centuries. He said this was also in line with the New Education Policy of the Central Government.

The Chancellor said the new university would be set up on the lines of ancient Centres of learning like Takshashila, Nalanda and Ujjain. The location of Sirmour district was chosen as it lacked institutions of higher learning, he said.

The Chief Minister agreed to be the Chief Guest during the ensuing blended (virtual and in-house) Convocation in February end or March. 

The university Chancellor also apprised the Chief Minister about the commendable strides made by the university during its 11 years of existence. He said the university topped India in the 2021 QS rankings for Citation Index (an indicator of quality research in institutions) with 14th rank across Asia in the same field. Shoolini is also ranked among the first 300 Asian Universities with 38th place in India and joint sixth among Indian private universities.

It was recently placed in the band from 6 to 25 in the Atal Rankings of private Institutions on Innovations and Achievements (ARIIA) at the all-India level.

The university also got the prestigious QS international certification for excellence in Academic digitalisation and was shortlisted for Times Higher Education (THE) in the category of ‘Outstanding Student Support’ for the Asia Awards 2020.

It was also shortlisted for the category of ‘Outstanding Support for Students’ for the implementation of its Skill Progression Through Rapid Intensive and Innovative Training (SPRINT) Programme with SIQANDAR.AI, a software developed for assessing and guiding students for soft skills and interviews.
