GSFC University is recognized under the Gujarat Private University (Second Amendment) Act, 2014 and is established by the GSFC Education Society - an initiative of Gujarat State Fertilizers and Chemicals Ltd.– a five decades old industrial giant - to continue the tradition of serving the community in multiple ways. The vision behind establishing this distinct University is societal development through relevant and cutting edge knowledge in frontier areas of professional growth
Our educational abode dwells on the philosophy of "Buddhi Gyanen Shudhayanti”. It means purification of mind and intellect through knowledge is vital to human life. It strengthens the path of success towards perfection. All the while being compassionate towards mankind and society at large.
A huge banyan tree is a part of our logo. It symbolises multiple roots of innovation that sprout towards sustainable growth. The rising Sun is in the background of banyan tree in logo. It symbolises plethora of opportunities for an accomplished life. Thus “Incubating Innovators” is the proclamation that GSFC University commits to.
Augmenting cutting edge skills is the core determination of GSFC University. To supplement and nourish these skills strong industrial support is a vital agent.
Students at GSFC University receive a unique opportunity in the form of hands on training in industry besides the classroom learning that gears them for their career development in multiple ways.
With focused deliberations on the state of education vis-à-vis industry demands, the GSFC University will focus on a culture of openness, which is participative and provides a platform for the two key stakeholders—students and faculty—to excel. The curriculum will include activities that promote active industrial connect as well as social responsibility and will be delivered in a blended-learning pedagogy.
Forums connecting industry with academia, a students’ forum to foster dialogue beyond the campus, and internships tailored to the need of the students will engender collaborations. Sabbaticals and faculty development programmes involving external partners will be another facet of University-supported collaboration.
The GSFC University will initiate a fundamental change in the way academic institutions are established. Our purpose is to train and develop human capital, as opposed to simply awarding degrees. We will continually measure our efforts and make changes as needed, to create thinking individuals, equipped to meet and exceed the ever-changing demands of the today’s marketplace.
