Message from the Desk of Chancellor, Prof (Dr). R.C. Joshi

The professional and technical education scenario is evolving at a rapid pace, and institutions like ours are destined to play a pivotal role in this evolution. We are poised to be the drivers of this change. And let me assure you, we are ready!!

As an educator, I have been associated with Graphic Era University in various advisory positions earlier. And now, taking up as Chancellor of GEU, I recognize and accept this responsibility of leading the institution to its glory. Graphic Era University ensures the overall development of students with state-of the-art teaching learning and research environment. All academic programs are of high quality and geared towards industry requirements. The collaboration with several industries and foreign universities make the students more competitive.

I would like to see the culmination of my academic experience and the GEU philosophy, to create a bright future for the entire GEU fraternity – its students, faculty members and the staff members. Eventually, I know that this future will inevitably trickle down to the larger sections of our society. And this excites me immeasurably!!

My heartiest welcome to all our new students in GEU, with the excellent faculty, infrastructure and placements, I realize that you are all here to see your future take shape in front of you. GEU, you and I, will together manifest this vision for you.
