    I welcome you with all care and guidance at DIT University, Dehradun, India.

    “Believing that the true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination”.

    The world of imagination is boundless and knowledge is the real clout which is a source of liberating information. Education is the premise of progress for every society. It is the prime factor that controls access to opportunity and advancement.

    DIT University is an ideal institute that offers a holistic learning environment that integrates inquiry based education in the classroom set up. It encompasses key learning areas that promotes investigations of global and challenging issues. The University is deeply committed for promotion of critical and creative thinking in the development of optimistic future visions and involves students and faculty working together; as each constructs new understandings and compares their current ideas with those of the global community at large.

    “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, and to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”? Ralph Waldo Emerson
