Leadership and cultural heritage
The Bardoli Satyagraha of 1928, was a major episode of civil disobedience and revolt in the Indian Independence Movement. This movement was led by Shri Vallabhbhai Patel, The momentum from the Bardoli victory aided in the resurrection of the freedom struggle nationwide. Shri Vallabhbhai Patel credited Bardoli victory to Gandhi's teachings and to the Bardoli farmers' undying approach. The people across the nation recognized Vallabhbhai’s vital leadership after this episode. It was women of Bardoli who bestowed the title Sardar for the first time, which in Gujarati and most Indian languages means Chief or Leader. It was after Bardoli that Sardar Patel became one of India's most important leaders. The University is committed to the noble practices established by the great leader and as we know Leader decides the vision/destiny and we are blessed to have a leadership and a rich cultural heritage which is focused on Quality Education.
