Late Shri Milap Dugar Said...
||Wedded to the Gandhian ideology of non-violence and universal brotherhood, Gandhi
Vidya Mandir (GVM) is one of the few educational institutions in India providing
quality education from pre-primary to doctoral level, even to students belonging to the
most deprived sections of society.
IASE (Deemed to be University), a unit of GVM, is a veritable amalgam of students and faculty,
which is broadly representative of the diversity of the Indian nation. Included in that
bouquet are shades and fragrances of other nations too. The University has dynamic
plans, mainly through admissions and recruitments. IASE (Deemed to be University) has
robust infrastructure and programming facilities to accommodate and maximize the
educational advantages of the campus's rich tradition of access, equity and excellence.
In the recent past, the Open and Distance Learning (ODL) system has gained world-wide
acceptance as the most cost-effective and convenient way of extending education to the
unreached. The growth of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has
revolutionized its efficacy and spread. We can now cater to the need of the hour and
offer what, when and where learners prefer to learn, instead of compelling the learners
to learn what, when and where we offer. Our affordable fees and well-designed courses,
supported by timely delivery of quality SIMs and credible examination system, are
attracting a good number of students, helping the University to establish a respectable
network of distance education centers throughout the country.
Our campus, in existence for more than 60 years, had an humble beginning, with no
great support from the movers and shakers of society. Being located in a deprived desert
zone made it that much more difficult. We have to take the initiative to prove to the
world that education leads to development. We need to prove wrong those who say
education is not a public welfare activity but a money-spinning industry. We have
proved this statement wrong in our working. We are committed to take the legacy of our
founding fathers forward.
GVM boasts of a glorious past. It has grown from strength-to-strength and its 60 years
history is a saga of stride, struggle and success. As a result, “Service with Sincerity” is
our watchword and “Gyanbhanur-bhasatam”, our motto. “May the Sun of Knowledge
Shine “. (the Sun knows no discrimination and fills the entire world with the life-giving
light and warmth).
