The RKDF group way back in 1990s realized the need for access and quality in higher education especially in central India and decided to establish colleges at different locations in the state of Madhya Pradesh. The Group is offering education since 1995 and has a network of colleges in areas of engineering, management, hotel management, education, homeopathic, dental and nursing, and pharmacy located in cities of Bhopal, Indore, Sehore and Rewa to promote equity and access to education in central India. The group has capacity to enroll annually more than 14,000 students in different disciplines. With a motive to give “education to all” the RKDF Group further decided to establish a university with multidiscipline; and thus emerged the RKDF University, Bhopal sponsored by the AYUSHMATI EDUCATION AND SOCIAL SOCIETY on 14th February 2012.The University is spread on a 55 acre beautiful landscape with plenty of open space and sports area interspersed within academic buildings.
Within a very short span its Vice Chancellor, Shri V. K. Sethi with his team of young and remarkably able group of faculties and staff and the experience of RKDF Group Management and Advisory Board has been able to carve a niche in the higher education sector of Madhya Pradesh. Also the student demographic- with students hailing from various states was emblematic of the socio-economic , ethnic, religious and cultural diversity of the country. Thus learning from the strengths and drawbacks and drawing from these experiences RKDF University has embarked upon a well defined course of action to achieve the levels of excellence it aspires to. The University has a mission to provide quality education through teaching and imparting practical skills in major disciplines up to post graduate level including M.Phil and Ph.D. In RKDF we believe that class lectures, apart from relaying information and imparting skills, should help students develop critical faculties for thinking out of the box. Furthermore, RKDF University strives to ensure that students’ education is multidimensional and we have adhered to a multidisciplinary approach. It has an excellent ambience and distinctly hospitable environment for higher learning in various subjects.
