Today, as India stands at the doorstep of a most exciting future replete with possibilities of unprecedented growth and development, higher education stands out as the pivotal variable – a factor that all of us as responsible citizens have the good fortune to impact. Today, Industry, academia and the general society all need to join hands to share each other’s expertise, enthusiasm and commitment to make a truly skilled, progressive and responsible Indian Citizenry a reality. In keeping with this spirit, Teerthdham Mangalayatan, Delhi Public Schools Aligarh, Delhi Public School Hathras & Mangalayatan University have focused on providing wholesome, relevant education to its students in an environment that inculcates values, mutual respect and cooperation.
