Based out of Indore MP (India), SVVV is a multi-disciplinary university focusing on the needs of various segments of the society. With value-based education being at the helm, the University promotes endurance, excellence, fairness, honesty and transparency as its core values.

It is the need of the hour to create and sustain an education system that is responsive to the new and dynamic environment of the economic revolution. At Shri Vaishnav Vidyapeeth Vishwavidyalaya, we vest our focus on creating a conducive environment for bringing together faculty and other stakeholders to work jointly groom the students. Shri Vaishnav Vidyapeeth Vishwavidyalaya emphasizes on offering great opportunities for creativity with the right ambiance for value-based quality education in various professional and traditional disciplines," shares Dr. Upinder Dhar, Vice Chancellor, Shri Vaishnav Vidyapeeth Vishwavidyalaya.

SVVV also hosts a unique one-on-one student-mentoring program for their all-round personality development. Believing that it is their responsibility to develop its students as professionals as long as they are students of SVVV, the institute constantly encourages its students to participate in every event and activity. "Our regular classes for Anchoring and Reporting, Television Production, Professional Photography, Radio Journalism, Film Journalism, PR, Advertising, Media Law and Ethics are some of the major attractions for the students willing to pursue higher education. We also take our students for constant field visits and we also have students who are running their YouTube channel and monthly newspaper SVVV bulletin and #SVVV. We constantly boost the confidence level of our students by making them practice every day of anchoring and reporting. Stage fear is a big challenge and for that daily class activity, Nukkad-Natak and
discussions are a great help. With class presentations and making students a part of the university events we inculcate teamwork and organizing skills amongst our students", says Dr. Upinder Dhar.
