The RKDF group way back in 1990s realized the need for access and quality in higher education especially in central India and decided to establish colleges at different locations in the state of Madhya Pradesh. The Group is offering education since 1995 and has a network of colleges in areas of Engineering, Pharmacy, Management, Hotel Management, Education, Homeopathic, Dental and Nursing located in cities of Bhopal, Indore, Sehore and Rewa to promote equity and access to education in central India. The group has capacity to enrol annually more than 14,000 students in different disciplines. With a motive to give “education to all” the RKDF Group further decided to establish a University with multidiscipline and thus emerged the RKDF University, Bhopal sponsored by the AYUSHMATI EDUCATION AND SOCIAL SOCIETY on 14th February 2012. The University is spread over 59 acre beautiful land with plenty of open space and sports area interspersed within academic buildings. Within a very short span its Ex-Vice Chancellor, Prof. V. K. Sethi with his team of young and remarkable group of faculties and staff and the experience of RKDF Group Management and Advisory Board has been able to carve a niche in the higher education sector of Madhya Pradesh. Also the student demographic- with students hailing from various states was emblematic of the socio-economic, ethnic, religious and cultural diversity of the country. Thus learning from the strengths and drawbacks and drawing from these experiences RKDF University has embarked upon a well-defined course of action to achieve the levels of excellence it aspires to. The University has a mission to provide quality education through teaching and imparting practical skills in major disciplines up to post graduate level including M.Phil. and Ph.D. In RKDF we believe that class lectures, apart from relaying information and imparting skills, should help students develop critical faculties for thinking out of the box. Furthermore, RKDF University strives to ensure that student’s education is multidimensional and we have adhered to a multidisciplinary approach. It has an excellent ambience and distinctly hospitable environment for higher learning in various subjects. The University facilitates interaction with national and foreign institutions to broaden the knowledge and skill of students. Flexibility in choice of courses, periodical revisions of courses, interdisciplinary and integrated courses as per the national and global requirement are the emerging issues that University envisaged to introduce in future. Sound grasp of fundamentals, good analytical skills, awareness of contemporary problems, reasoning abilities and exposure to the rapidly changing technologies are an integral part of the teaching in the campus. Infrastructure like physical facilities, updating of laboratory equipment, modern pedagogical equipment for delivery of lectures, latest books and journals including e-journals are other aspects that University is conscious of to provide.
