Welcome to the world of Bhagat Phool Singh Mahila Vishwavidyalaya, Khanpur Kalan (BPSMV), the first State Women University of Haryana, in fact, of the entire North India. It is a premier Indian University dedicated to the noble cause of women empowerment through education. Its genesis in the erstwhile Girls’ Gurukul established by revered Bhagat Phool Singh Ji in 1936 makes BPSMV a unique model of tradition with modernity and promotion of value based education with global outlook. Being a residential University, BPSMV is striving to offer state-of-the-art infrastructure for learning and accommodation of students enrolled in courses ranging from LKG to PhD. Besides offering courses in all conventional disciplines, the University has the unique distinction of offering engineering and Indian medicine courses under one roof.
Being driven by the noble ideals of legendary Bhagat Phool Singh Ji, Subhashini Ji, Gargi, Maitreyi, Andal, , Meera, Lal Ded, Lopamudra, Leelawati, Bhagini Nivedita, Rani Lakshimibai and other great Indian women, BPSMV has established its strong bond with the local community. BPSMV has adopted 10 nearby villages for their holistic growth and financial independence of rural women in particular. Our centers of excellence like the Centre for Society University Interface and Research (CSUIR) and the Centre for Indic Asian Studies (CIAS) not only connect the University with the community but also preserve and disseminate indigenous knowledge traditions and cultural practices.
With a view to promote promote national civilizational pride and encourage research of social relevance, we have signed MOUs with Durban University of Technology, South Africa, St. Catherine University, USA; Kwangwoon University, South Korea; National Cooperative Union of India (NCUI), New Delhi; United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Shiksha Sanskriti Utthaan Nyaas, Delhi, Haryana Vishwakarma Skill University, Palwal, Haryana so that both students and teachers get to know the best academic and cultural practices happening world over.
I firmly believe that ‘education as the key to empowerment’. Therefore my mission is to evolve BPSMV as one of the best Women Universities world over, making it known for providing high quality, affordable and value based education and helping students in becoming thinking humans rooted in Indian values and knowledge systems. We lay special emphasis on promoting civilizational ethos and holistic development of personality with communicative competence in use of English, proficiency in at least one foreign language and effective use of Information Communication Technology (ICT). I earnestly solicit your contribution in achieving the stated objectives and ensuring ‘शिक्षित बेटी - शिक्षित समाज’ (educated daughters-educated society).
I dream of making BPSMV a University as envisaged by Anni Basent in the first meeting of the Court of Banaras Hindu University in December 1920:
"विश्वविद्यालय इमारतें नहीं, वे सौंदर्य और ज्ञान के प्रति प्रेम की निर्मिति होते हैं. इस निर्मिति का लक्ष्य है, आकार का सौंदर्य, रंगों का सौंदर्य, स्थान, कालपात्र का सौंदर्य"
