Vision & Mission of Founder-Patron of the University, Pt. Sri Ram Sharma Acharya was suitably considered before conceptualizing the course. The course was aimed to provide solutions to grass roots problems and the unique requirements of Indian rural areas. It was also believed that there is a need to create a live model, which could lead to making a village self- reliant, for all purposes. Such a model has been developed in the University and has been considered a focal point of the course. The employment generation possibilities, self-employment and placements in the NGOs, Govt. and Non
Govt. Sectors were also considered while designing the curriculum. The draft curriculum was submitted to the Board of studies meeting and was eventually approved by the academic council.
