Dr. Ashok Gupta, Founder Director & Vice Chancellor

“The ignited mind of the youth is the most powerful resource on the earth, above the earth and under the earth,” stated APJ Abdul Kalam, the legendary late President of India. This quote accentuates the power and potential vested in the minds of youth, attributing precise truth when preceded by right guidance. Tapping this mentation to chisel-out refined talents, Dr. Ashok Gupta (Founder Director & Vice Chancellor, IIS University (Deemed to be University)) founded The International College for Girls (ICG-then affiliated to the University of Rajasthan) in 1995, which was recognized one among 50 colleges that were given the ‘College with Potential for Excellence’ status by the University Grants Commission (UGC) during phase-II. Earning a list of achievements to its name ever since, ICG soon scored its title as ‘Deemed to be University’ by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (GOI), thereby emerging as The IIS University – Jaipur thereon. Following the penchant of Dr. Ashok’s vision for perfection, IIS University stands as a temple of learning where education is a commitment and the training a mission.

Based on an unflinching faith in the potential of the youth to ignite their minds and develop conviction in them, the deemed university throws-out a platform that recognizes ‘Unique as its tradition’. Its resourceful campus accommodates a conducive environment with industry-based curriculum models, well-equipped classrooms & research labs, state-of-the-art centralized & departmental libraries & auditoriums, and ample opportunities for extra-curricular growth. To its vast ambit, Dr. Ashok states, “The IIS University is an institution committed to providing its student's academic programmes, which will make a difference to their lives. We, as the stewards of learning, are dedicated to grooming and nurturing young girls into world ready women,
work with people of all cultures and equip them for the careers of the future; this is our world where learning has no limits”.
