About Us


On the 21stof May 2001, the Abhilashi Education Society appeared like a little star on theeducational horizon of Himachal Pradesh. That little star, now patronage of theAbhilashi University which is shining "like a diamond in the sky."Having acquired the status of University on the 14th August 2014 withPotential for Excellence, today, the University celebrates its 07thFoundation year. Over the years the University has redefined itself keeping inmind the changing trends of the educational system.

Butlet us travel down memory lane and recall how this University was set up. Theefforts for a University for rural society of the Himachal Pradeshwereinitiated as early as 2001 when the Abhilashi Education Society was established.The first milestone was achieved to establish Abhilashi PG College of Educationin 2003 under the patronage of the Abhilashi Education Society, continue tostepping stones in a row like Abhliashi Institute of Management Studies in2005, Abhilashi College of Pharmacy in 2006, Abhilashi Institute of LifeSciences in 2007 and T R Abhilashi Memorial Institute of Engineering andTechnology in 2010. The promoters of the society have seen dream to establishan University of Excellence which was true on 14th August 2014 whenthe Abhilashi University was established by the Govt. of Himachal Pradesh vide“Abhilashi University (Establishment & Regulation) Act, 2014”. The locationof the University became an ideal place for study surrounded by the lush greenfields, pine and oak forests.

Prof.H S Banyal, Eminent Professor from the Himachal Pradesh University wasappointed the first Vice-Chancellor of the University. Major (Retd.) J C Patialwasappointed the first Registrar, who worked very closely with Prof. Banyal. TheUniversity has a status of State Private University but what is remarkable isthat the “Promoters made it clear that this status will in no way detract fromthe autonomy of the University and its freedom to organize its teaching andadministration as to embody in them the highest conception of University life”.

TheUniversity has made a significant contribution in the field of highereducation. A peep into the past has many interesting features to reveal itsprogressive and dynamic outlook since its very beginning. The foundations laidfor this University are deep and strong as is amply borne out by the followingextract from the address delivered by the Hon’ble Vice-Chancellor of theUniversity Prof. H S Banyal, on the August 2014 at the meeting of the AcademicCouncil. "This is the first meeting of academic council of the University.It is of happy significance that the first body to meet should be the AcademicCouncil. It helps to emphasize the fact that this University is to be one inwhich academic considerations, academic responsibility, shall always come first.This Council is the academic conscience of the University; and, as the firstperson honored with its Chairmanship, I venture to suggest that today andalways the members may firmly maintain, at whatever cost, the highest standardsand the soundest policy from an academic point of view”.
