Vice Chancellor Message

Dr. Vimal Kumar Sharma - Vice Chancellor - Dr. CV Raman University, Bihar Dear students, faculty, staff and whole AISECT family,

With profound pride and deep gratitude, I step into the esteemed role of Vice Chancellor at Dr. C V Raman University (CVRU), situated amidst the vibrant tapestry of Bihar within the esteemed AISECT group of India. I extend my sincere appreciation to Shri Santosh Chaubey ji, a visionary engineer, administrator, and the illustrious Chairman & founder of the Group; for entrusting me with this pivotal position. Under his meticulous guidance, a transformative educational ecosystem has flourished, where innovation knows no bounds and boundaries dissolve. This ecosystem has not only birthed a network of universities but has also spearheaded vast skill development and livelihood promotion initiatives across India. It represents a remarkable fusion of sciences, engineering, arts, management, farming, and myriad other disciplines, converging seamlessly to offer a holistic, skill-based NextGen education. On behalf of the entire CVRU community in Bihar, I solemnly pledge to uphold his legacy of excellence and innovation as we navigate the challenges and victories that lie ahead.

Allow me to present myself. With four decades of enriching expertise spanning the realms of research, development, technology transmissions, academia, and institutional leadership; I bring to this esteemed organization an unwavering commitment to excellence and a fervent dedication to transformative education. My journey commenced within the revered corridors of ICAR-DARE, Govt of India, where I devoted 25 years to trailblazing research and developmental initiatives in agricultural, rural, and allied sectors. Subsequently, my tenure in six premier national research institutions across diverse subject domains/locations at Bhopal, Dehradun, Hyderabad, New Delhi, Jhansi, and Roorkee provided me with invaluable insights into various forms of R&D (basic, operational, applied, advanced & smart) on natural resource management. This encompassed a wide spectrum of domains including water, soil, land use impacts, forestry, rangelands, hydrology, and water resources. Transitioning to academia, I embarked upon fulfilling fifteen-year tenure. Within this period, I shaped young minds, fostered cutting-edge research, and played a pivotal role in establishing new academic faculties, being founder Dean & Principal Investigator for many nationally vital projects. My journey through esteemed positions such as Professor, Head of Department, Principal, Dean, and Directorate of Research at a prestigious agricultural University in Gujarat epitomizes my commitment to academic excellence. Throughout my academic odyssey, I have been adorned with numerous accolades, national awards, and scholarly contributions.

Stepping into the esteemed role of Vice Chancellor, I envision Dr. C V Raman University as a beacon of holistic development, innovation, and inclusive growth. Rooted in the principles of excellence, equity, and empowerment, our aim is to cultivate an academic environment that pulsates with creativity, fosters critical thinking, and resonates with societal relevance. In the dawn of the transformative National Education Policy 2020, we stand on the precipice of a new era in higher education. Embracing this pivotal moment, we pledge to leverage emerging technologies, nurture interdisciplinary collaboration, and reimaging pedagogical methodologies. Our goal is to equip students with the tools and mindset to become global citizens and catalysts for change. While our path forward may be fraught with challenges, each obstacle presents an opportunity for growth and innovation. Together, as a united community driven by purpose and passion, we will confront these challenges with resilience, determination, and collective effort.

As your Vice Chancellor, I am committed to elevating the quality of education, fostering innovation, and promoting research that addresses the pressing challenges of society. In collaboration with the faculty, staff, and students, we will leverage our collective strengths to create an intellectual ecosystem that prepares graduates to be leaders, problem-solvers, and agents of positive change. Together, let us embark on this collective journey, fueled by the pursuit of knowledge and driven by a shared vision of a brighter future. I invite each and every one of you to actively participate, engage, and contribute towards making our university an institution of distinction. I extend a heartfelt invitation to each of you to join us on this journey of excellence. Together, let us pioneer a new narrative of academic brilliance, innovation, and societal impact at Dr. C V Raman University.
