Vice Chancellor's Message

Working together, we aim to bring a lasting and positive result through our learning, teaching and research. Himalayiya University is an excellent place to learn, find, experiment and shape the world. We try to give each curious soul the best knowledgeable solution and make them better citizens for the Nation to develop on the whole. 

The Himalayiya University was established by Uttarakhand State Government as a State Private University in 2019 and since then it has been providing quality education to the students. The motto of our university is to Arise,be Aware and don’t stop till the goal is reached.

Our aim is to provide job oriented innovative courses so that our students can easily be absorbed in the job market. Our focus is also to create a knowledge bank of Academicians, Industrialists, Entrepreneurs, Bureaucrats, and Non-Govt. Organisations etc. We will also have linkages with national and foreign Himalayan institutes and universities for collaborative research.

A university is a place where we create, discover, conserve and distribute the Knowledge. I am very happy to say that this university is a place, where all the stakeholders have a free and conducive environment for teaching, learning, research and extension.“The Value of education is not only learning many facts but training the minds to think,” Says Albert Einstein. I am sure that with the dedicated efforts of our faculty and staff, we will be able to train our young minds in a positive way so that they can contribute to the development of the Himalayan region.

I am confident that the vast pool of Human recourses present in the university will be able to contribute to and enlightenthe students, and community.

Good Luck and Best wishes to all.
