A successful institution carries its blossom with those innumerable stories of sacrifices by great many people, but it is the manifestation of a grand dream of a few individuals. The intense urge of successive Pontiffs of Sri Suttur Math is to serve the last man in the society. This has bloomed hundreds of institutions under JSS Mahavidyapeetha. JSS Science and Technology University, being a part, undoubtedly holds a great promise with glorious five decades of experience of international reckoning. I feel immensely blessed to serve as a Vice Chancellor at JSS Science and Technology University. With profound heart, I fail to find words to express my sincere gratitude to the management for having reposed such immense confidence in my competence.
Success always precedes responsibility and hangs on the thin thread of constant vigil. The priorities of the budding university are juxtaposed and the road map is laid simple and clear. The next three years are most crucial as the history of coming decades is etched now. Assuming full responsibility, I assure a true and transparent administration by taking every stake holder of the university into confidence. Working at different capacities, as a Professor, Researcher, Head at Department of Polymer Science and Technology and Dean (Science) for several years, it helped me to decode the inner working of the technical institution. I will strive to make the best use of what is in our power, and take the rest as it happens.
JSS Mahavidyapeetha, the parent organization, has accomplished many laurels in the field of Education, Health, Spirituality and Culture. The cultural moorings coupled with tradition of the Sri Math binds the institutions on the road of success. The JSS Science and Technology University would also traverse the same path under the benign guidance and vision of JSS Mahavidyapeetha.
