Clinician, Philanthropist, Educationist and above all a Visionary, Dr. Vats currently heads the governing body of Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies (www.vips.edu). VIPS imparts education in the field of Business Management, Law, Journalism and Information Technology.
In a culmination of his deep and rich experience over decades, Dr S C Vats took on multiple philanthropic activities, including education. In the year 2000 Dr Vats founded Vivekananda School of Professional Studies, nurturing it over 17 years.
Vivekananda School of Economics has been proudly launched in 2017, poised to be a leading center for study in economics with its roots in the values and ethos of Swami Vivekananda.
Going down the memory lane, it reminds me of the decade of trials and tribulations which was dotted with more successes than failures. Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies was established in the year 2000 with the sole objective of not only imparting quality education , but also to shape our students in to good professionals, besides making them a responsible citizen of our country. The Management has all through been fired with the vision of Swami Vivekananda, which lays significant emphasis on ,” Man Making, Character Building and Nation Building”. His philosophy has been followed at the Institution in its letter and spirit.
To begin with VIPS had three courses to offer i.e. five years of integrated Law Degree (BA LLB), Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA) and Bachelor of Journalism & Mass Communication (BJMC). The students of these streams have all through been a source of strength and they have helped us in strengthening our resolve to stand by our ideals at all cost. From the year 2012 more undergraduate courses were introduced, Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and two post graduate courses LLM and MCA by AICTE. All courses are affiliated to GGSIP University.
Today VIPS, as it has come to be known amongst our students and the community at large enters into another year of pioneering service to the cause of Education. In the last 17 years of its existence we have bagged total 20 Gold Medals, 10 in Law , another 7 medals in VSJMC and 3 medals in BCA. We still do not call ourselves as Center of Excellence as many Institutions term themselves on a trumpets beat by launching a massive publicity campaign and through their self proclamations. VIPS stands ahead in promoting Sports, co curricular and extracurricular activities also.
For us at VIPS, there is still a long way to go for realizing our long cherished dream of being truly a world class Institution. We the Management and our talented faculty have the determination and the will to lay our own bench mark for others to follow. The first step in this direction is the state of an art infrastructure which besides having centrally air conditioned classrooms has a well stock library including a digital library, smart boards, well equipped labs and facilities for creating a Virtual Campus. An attractive food court is a favorite place for our students to hang out.
The Management of Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies owes its deep gratitude to it truly dedicated and highly qualified faculty which has not only toiled hard to produce quality professionals but have also ensured that our students get 100% placement in their respective disciplines. Some of the faculty members have been continuing ever since the inception of our Institute. In addition to that they have passionately pursued their Research. Faculty members have also got their papers published in National and International journals of repute. Our heartfelt thanks to the support staff/Administrative Staff for their rigorous hard work and their devotion to duty.
Let me sound a word of caution to the new and the old students that we here at VIPS have zero tolerance for ragging. Management shall not hesitate in rusticating such students who indulge in gross acts of indiscipline. Any student found to be vandalizing the property of the Institute shall be strictly dealt with.
Last but not the least, let me thank all the parents who have reposed their faith in the ideals that VIPS stands for and have got their wards admitted to this prestigious Institute. Dear Parents, let me assure you on behalf of the Management that we at VIPS shall do our very best to make your ward not only a good professional but a responsible citizen of our Nation.
