We are witnessing a big leap and a systemic transformation in India’s education spectrum. The National Education Policy has introduced us to a wider perspective enthused with bigger responsibility. Present-day education demands a more robust approach towards bringing holistic institutional development. Innovations and new initiatives in our institutions are the intriguing keys towards sustainable and holistic development. It is high time that we consider ourselves as “Fellow Travellers” on this path of development. We need to collaborate and build synergy in developing our institutes with a larger goal of developing a knowledge-based society and build nation. We as a community in this knowledge society envisage to see each one of us excel with compassion, not by competition. 

They only live, who live for others, the rest are more dead than alive. - Swami Vivekananda

To leverage our collective strengths and expertise, a national summit for Leaders of Educational Institutes is being planned. Vidya Bharati Uchcha Shiksha Sansthan desires to establish a platform for concerned institutional heads and torchbearers of this community. A platform where the thought leaders of education can exchange ideas, wisdom, best practices, peer learning and design for the collective development of our institutions and the education system at large. 

It is we a “Knowledge Society” that matters not an “individual”.



Vidya Bharati Uccha Shisha Sansthan:

Vidya Bharati Uccha Shisha Sansthan (VBUSS) is a voluntary organization working in the field of education with a primary focus on policy implementation and structural reforms in India’s Higher Education landscape. The core concept and ideal of VBUSS are to address the emerging needs of quality education and to reflect on the framework of Bharatiya knowledge, concepts, practice, philosophy and approach. The organisation has emerged as a transforming voice and movement led by learned, eminent educationists, scholars and concerned citizens of modern-day India.

VBUSS has been actively engaged in constructive engagement, developing thought processes, policy intervention and recommendations.

In the recent years since its inception, the organisation has been relentlessly engaged in numerous activities to promote, create awareness, decoding NEP 2020. Having done a series of thought processes and submitting policy recommendations VBUSS is also playing a crucial participatory role in policy implementation and practice.


University of Lucknow:

Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh is home to the prestigious University of Lucknow, a public state university. A pioneer among India's publicly funded universities, the University of Lucknow has been in service since 1867. It is the largest state university in Uttar Pradesh.

VBUSS strongly believes in and advocates the philosophy of “Fellow Travellers” in the education system. Here the term fellow travellers refer to educationist and educational institutes in India. And we as an individual representing our institutes will form a larger gamut of the Community. Let us recall what Henry Ford said “Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is a success.” With this motivation, these two days of the meeting of institutional leaders are planned to envision developing a consensus and drawing a roadmap towards addressing the larger concerns of the Education Sector and exploring various potentials of collaborations to address the theme of Institutions for national development.

Introduction to the NSIL 2024 Theme "Institutions for National Development":

The New Education Policy (NEP) of India is a transformative document that outlines a comprehensive vision for the country's education system. At the heart of this vision lies the recognition of the pivotal role that educational institutions play in shaping the nation's future. Educational institutions play a central role in shaping the fabric of a nation, contributing significantly to its development and progress. In the pursuit of nation-building, educational institutions hold the key to cultivating value-driven individuals, fostering character building, nurturing ethical leadership, and instilling a sense of social responsibility. This concept note aims to explore and emphasize the multifaceted role of institutions in nation-building within the framework of the NEP and underscores the vital role of institutions in shaping the moral and ethical fabric of society while addressing the importance of a robust governance structure, government support, and inclusive practices. The summit will witness deliberations on the following themes but not restricted to: 

  • Multi-Disciplinary Education 
  • Academic Bank of Credit, NCrF & APAAR
  • Institutional Leadership & Governance
  • Integration of Indian Knowledge System in HEI
  • Research & Innovation for Holistic Education
  • Institutional Collaboration & Academic Linkages
  • Institutional Social Responsibility
  • SEDG in HEI
  • Ranking & Accreditation of HEIs 
  • Indian HEI @2047
  • Access to Quality Education 

The summit will also have a session on "Idea Exchange" where the participating institutions will be encouraged to share their best practices and successful models with regard to NEP 2020 implementation. Interested institute are requested to confirm their presentation to the organsier in advance via email nsil@vbuss.org


The NEP places institutions at the forefront of nation-building, recognizing them as the bedrock of transformative change. The role of educational institutions in shaping value-driven individuals and contributing to national development is pivotal. Institutions, as pillars of education, significantly impact the trajectory of a nation. As we deliberate on the role of institutions in nation-building, discussions among stakeholders should focus on practical strategies for character building, ethical leadership development, environmental responsibility, effective governance structures, government support, and inclusive funding models. By aligning educational goals with societal values, institutions become catalysts for positive change, nurturing individuals who not only excel academically but also embody the principles essential for a prosperous and harmonious nation. The outcome of the summit will be presented as “Lucknow Declaration” which will facilitate as a road map for coordination and collaboration of HEIs.
