Genesis & Growth

Back in 1972, few would have imagined the significance of our journey. The future seemed uncertain. There were challenges in every facet of the organization. Attracting students and good faculty were the basic twin challenges. And resource mobilization was always going to be the key.

The first year saw a trickle: 4 students. It improved marginally to 12 the next year. Year-on-year, the numbers began to increase. 40+ years down the timeline, over 4,000 students are happy to be here doing things they cherish.

This seamless growth of the institution is a testimony to the successful organization building of the leadership over time.

Obviously, the initial years mattered. The founding members were committed to building an institution on the strong foundation of core values – excellence, integrity, responsiveness, team work and inclusivity.
