The Dr. Shakuntala Misra National Rehabilitation University is an institution with a distinct character. I congratulate you for approaching this University for higher learning. This University does not have any parallel in the annals of higher education in India for the reason that it has fifty percent reservation for differently-abled or physically challenged students. Hence, the University not only offers an opportunity for academic excellence but it also augments human aspect of an individual who study in this institution, making him a holistic human being.
In my long career and experience in the University system, I consider it a privilege to head this University. It is a challenge to give shape and direction to a University where normal and differently-abled students mingle and study together. It is my considered opinion that University education should not only strive for academic growth but it should also aim at developing an individual as a noble human being with sterling character, and this University offers ideal environment for the same.
The University is at nascent stage. This gives us an opportunity to develop and mould it in a way which is suited to its aims and objectives with modern advancements. The University offers various classical, modern and professional courses for normal and differently-abled students. We are planning to commence more courses with modern thrust having international standards for abled and differently-abled students. We are also planning to envisage job-oriented courses for our students. We hope and trust that in the days to come this University will emerge as an institution of excellence in the sphere of higher learning having impressive infrastructure, academic distinction with humanitarian approach.
We welcome all to the environ of this novel institution. Our commitment, to the betterment of this institution along with its inmates whether they are students or faculty members, is absolute. I extend my best wishes to all the existing or aspiring students and assure them a memorable experience in this esteemed institution.
