Brief History of Sushila Devi Centre for Professional Studies & Research Society
A group of social workers, educationists, philanthropists and leading businessmen had a vision to enrich the city of Dehradun by establishing a series of institutes in higher education which would impart quality education and build vocational skills among the youth. Sushila Devi Centre for Professional Studies and Research Society was set up in 2000 and got registered under the Societies Registration Act 1860.
The mission of this society was to build quality education imparting institutes at graduate, post graduate and research levels. Keeping in view of the above the society has established the following institutes of higher learning:
Considering the pivotal role, the institutes have played in furthering the course of higher education and inculcation of value-based vocational skills among the youth, the Government of Uttarakhand accorded the group the status of University under the Uttaranchal University Act, 2012 (Uttarakhand Act No. 11 of 2013).
