Dean's Message

I acknowledge your interest in Jigyasa University (Formerly Himgiri Zee University)and welcome you on behalf of the School of Education & Humanities. It gives me immense pleasure to connect with you at this platform. Life demands a lot from all of us and what we get from life solely depends on the decisions we make at appropriate time. The art of decision-making is gifted to everyone equally. How successful you will become in future is entirely a matter of your perceptions and thinking about yourself that guides you every time you take a new decision. What is the most exquisite gift life has given to us? The answer is ‘life’ itself and life is made up of experiences. Every day we try to be better than the previous day by enriching our life with unprecedented experiences. The best experiences of life comes when we listen to our inner voice and never let anybody translate our vision and aim in their words. As a human being, making mistakes and learning to be better everyday is not to be taken as an odd, rather that is the best way to embrace the beauty of life. The future depends upon what you do today, so think wisely and act wisely. Your decisions are shaping your future so don’t stop until you feel proud of yourself. There may be good times, there may be hard times when you would need to push yourself forward. Never look back to get disheartened for what you could not achieve. There is no end to a new beginning and with every new beginning there is lots in store to achieve. Therefore, ensure your capabilities, learn new things every day, get in touch with positive people who can give you strength and motivation and keep moving. Work hard in silence and let your success speak out loud.

At Jigyasa University (Formerly Himgiri Zee University), we follow student-centric approach to provide our students with a vibrant teaching-learning environment where they get ample opportunities for their growth. Our classroom teaching experience is blended with the field work, internships, workshops and placement guidance. We always strive to impart opportunities where our students learn critical thinking, collaborative learning and independent decision-making.

With best wishes
