Prof. Hrridaysh Deshpande
It is difficult to predict the future of any person, entity, or system. The pace of change, driven by the growing internationalization of culture and commerce, massive development of information technologies, technical and social transformations, means that organizations and systems are constantly exposed to change. These changes are triggering disruptions in every aspect of our lives including the way we learn and teach.
Increasingly, security lies not in employment but in employability, and that in simple terms should become the key differentiator of your persona. Careers today are not ‘chosen’ but constructed, through the series of choices about learning and work that are made throughout your lives.
The Ajeenkya DY Patil University is here to help you construct meaningful careers. It is here to facilitate you to know things that are useful and to cultivate the humanity of a concrete person. This concrete person is the one who respects knowledge as inclusive of all the aspects of human life and experience.
At the fundamental level, all education is an activity undertaken in search of truth and its utility is manifested in outcomes for the society. A degree is just an amalgam of subjects put together to fast-track your development in a particular domain of knowledge.
I believe that the right kind of education has the power to design and redesign the blueprint of human civilization for the better. To be a part of such a system at ADYPU that boasts of an incomparable legacy of transforming young minds into responsible citizens is a matter of great pride to me.
Our priority at ADYPU is to impart a learning-centric contemporary curriculum that meets and beats the standard benchmarks of quality of teaching. We are determined to take forward the great endeavours of the University executed with new zeal. I dedicate myself to the cause of actualizing noble visions which include a new revolution in Teaching and Learning that is aligned with the future interactive technology. ADYPU will continue its focus on academic excellence where our ability to measure learning will be the yardstick by which we provide evidence of our success. We will promote an evidence‐based culture that allows us to showcase to our students that there is a meaningful return on their educational investment.
I look forward to bolstering innovation with an open mind. I believe in having no walls between me and the entire kinfolk of ADYPU for matters concerning education and others. With this confidence, I invite you to join me in this journey of progressive transformation towards a better world. I have full trust in your capabilities and I wish you all success in your future endeavors.
