FROM THE DESK OF


CHANCELLOR
Mrs. Kusum Lata Goyal

,,

Education is like a vast ocean that is fed by many rivers and tributaries. The
construction of a singularly exceptional campus in Shimla that will house an
institution committed to innovation and holistic teaching is the A P Goyal
Charitable Trusts humble contribution to that ocean.

At A P Goyal Shimla, we look at personal development in terms of sargam. Just like


mastering a single swara will not result in making music, we feel that simply
concentrating on one subject will not allow a student to harness his or her full
potential. To expand the analogy, the way proficiency with all seven swaras is a
prerequisite to forming a harmonious whole, we believe that, in order for a
student to grow into a well-rounded, mature member of society, he or she should
be exposed to the entire educational spectrum.

Late Sh. A P Goyal

Theres something magical about the hills...


Pine covered crests that stand majestic beneath a starlit canopy.
Crisp cool air that fills your lungs, mountain mists that caress your skin.
Where the only sounds are the only sounds are those of the birds
Or the happy gurgling of the stream.
The only scents those of the pine & rhododendron
Carried by the forest breeze.
A paradise of contentment, without any city cares
Where nature works its magic on the mind, body & soul!!
Where nature nurtures young minds......

FROM THE
DESK OF
THE EXECUTIVE
DIRECTOR

I would like to welcome you to A P Goyal Shimla University. Located in the scenic
mountains of the Himalayas, A P Goyal Shimla indefatigably strives to provide its
students with a world class education in an environment of creativity and tranquility.
What is fundamentally unique about A P Goyal Shimla is our holistic teaching philosophy:
We do not think that the mind exists as an independent entity, but, rather as an individual
part of a more complex whole. This is why we believe that it is just as important to
exercise the body and spirit as well. We also unnervingly believe that gaining knowledge
of just one particular subject is not enough in today's hyper competitive world. Hence,
besides providing its students with a faculty par excellence, We also offers yoga classes
and breathing technique tutorials along with the opportunity to choose from a wide
range of foreign language options.
Our aspires to be the epitome of the comprehensive educational institution for the new
century. Through the merger of an integrated teaching philosophy with innovative
course content, we are confident that our student will not only develop but thrive as well.
We aim to produce nothing less than the next generation of Indian and global leaders.

PROMINENT FACULTY
At A P Goyal Shimla University we have included some
of the most experienced batteries of learned
professionals and extraordinary individuals related to
their field of expertise. Our competent faculty has got
the ability to bond with the students coming from
different cultural and social backgrounds. Our faculties
are well aware of the fact that the only thing constant in
this world is change. Therefore, they are open to
change, new ways, new ideas, new systems and new
approaches. Our prominent faculty is categorized
under the following two sub-headings namely:

Diversity not just as a celebration, but also as an


experience in itself.
One whose knowledge is confined to books can never
use it when the need arises.
Inspired by the quote we endeavour to offer practical
knowledge to our students that help them in their
professional lives. Our teaching is not book centric.
Through our unique approach, we guide our students
towards a better future.

the importance of research papers of different scholars
in their field of expertise. In short, such distinguished
academicians have enough firepower in their arsenal to

freely.

The traditional mode of learning perpetrates


memorizing without the student ever grasping the soul
of the subject resulting into lessons taught becoming an
exercise in futility. We sensitize the students through

learning. Value based learning has far greater relevance
in a dynamic and ever changing environment. The

commitment to learning.
