From the VC's Desk
Welcome to the Website of Sardar Patel University, named after one of the greatest and illustrious sons of India, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. This University in its fifty five years of existence has become a leading seat of higher education with several unique features. The University and the township of Vallabh Vidyanagar on which sprawls the University campus, have not been created by any executive order of the State, neither have they been created by one or few wealthy people. Indeed, this land of learning and the Seat of Higher Education - The University - has been created by a unique co-operative contribution of a large number of farmers of this rural area, who were inspired and enthused by the vision, dedication, and sacrifices of Sardar Patel, Shri Bhaikaka and Shri Bhikhabhai. Having been founded on the basis of selfless voluntary contribution of the local farmers aspiring to transform this rural area into an enlightened collectivity of people with impeccable character and national spirit, Sardar Patel University has been nurtured by the cherished values of its founders and a large number of very able, selfless and visionary academic and administrative leaders.
Today, The University offers a variety of courses at all levels covering almost every discipline of knowledge. Several of its departments and academic programs have been nationally acclaimed and internationally reputed. The Quality of research and the standard of publication by the members of faculty and research scholars are the best among the leading Universities in India and abroad. The serene, green and peaceful environment of its campus, free from all kinds of modern nuisance nourishes the vitality of the University's pursuits of academic excellence as visualized by Sardar Patel. Addressing the gathering of scholars on the occasion of the inauguration of the first College in Vallabh Vidyanagar, Sardar Patel had shared his vision of academic excellence in these words : "We want to train the citizens of Independent India and not helpless young ones loitering for jobs, thus education without character is worthless".
This University website is in continuation of our efforts to extend information to the concerned stakeholders regarding the university, its affiliated institutions, and programmes.
I on behalf of the university fraternity, invite you to visit the campus and experience for yourself a lively and excellent academic pursuit.
Thank you for visiting this website of Sardar Patel University.
