Sajjada Nashin, Shri Darbar Sahib
Chancellor – Shri Guru Ram Rai University

Shri Guru Ram Rai University is committed to create responsible citizens who are the epitome of highest ethics and social conduct. The responsibility lies with us to nurture complete professionals, who can rightly be termed as 'Karam-Yogis'. I proudly state that we are fully equipped and motivated to handle this challenge and surely be successful.

A strong believer and practitioner of the dictum “Knowledge is Power”,Shri Guru Ram Rai University is on the path of delivering quality education by developing the young human resources on the foundation of ethical and moral values, while boosting their leadership qualities, research culture and innovative skills. This ‘temple of learning’ has excellent infrastructure where excellence is nurtured, pursued and celebrated as we work to create positive change for a better world and provide facilities conducive to higher teaching-learning environment and research. The main objective of the University is to provide higher education of exalted standards and hence, all the programs are designed to meet global standards. Highly experienced and qualified faculty members, continuously engaged in the maintenance and enhancement of student-centric learning environment through innovative pedagogy, form the backbone of the University.

The curriculum has been designed with industry-specific goals in mind and the educator enjoys complete freedom to appropriate the syllabus by incorporating the latest knowledge and stimulating the creative minds of the students. Curriculum is extremely contemporary and is a culmination of efforts of great think-tanks - a large number of faculty members, experts from industries and research organizations.

At University, research, consultancy and innovation are regarded as pillars of success. Most of the faculty members of the University are involved in research as it forms the heart of any industry and is the key to growth and sustenance. SGRR University has entered into collaboration with many prominent industries to bridge the gap between industry and University. Regular visits to industries and mandatory internship with industries have helped our students become skilled with relevant to industry requirements. Structured training programs on soft-skills and preparatory training for competitive exams are offered here to make students more employable. Quality placement of eligible students speaks the effectiveness of these programs.

With firm faith in the saying, “Intelligence plus character –that is the goal of education”, I strongly believe SGRR University is marching ahead in the right direction, providing a holistic education to the future generation and playing a positive role in nation building. We wish to burgeon and enable the modern scholars to consider education as the most powerful weapon which can be used to change the world. We reiterate our endeavor to provide premium quality education accessible to all and an environment for the growth of over-all personality development leading to generating “GLOBAL PROFESSIONALS”.

I believe that rigors of the contemporary world require professionals not to end their quest for knowledge along with their stay in the campus. The dynamics of the fast-changing world urges the academicians to give the right impetus for making life-long learners out of students.
