Spiritual Guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar to visit Odisha on September first week to attend first convocation of Sri Sri University on 3rd September at Mayfair Hotel in Bhubaneswar .
Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik will attend the convocation as Chief Guest. His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is a renowned spiritual leader and multi-faceted humanitarian whose mission of uniting the world into a violence-free family has inspired millions of people worldwide.
The icon of non-violence and universal human values, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is the founder of Sri Sri University. Envisioned by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji, the Sri Sri University was established as a centre for world-class education so Indian students do not have to leave the country in search of what they perceive to be better opportunities.
The University is located on a 185-acre campus between Bhubaneshwar and Cuttack. The campus includes the admin block, a well-equipped computer lab, a well-updated library, auditoriums, comfortable hostels, Vidya (skill training centre) and a cafeteria. The campus also includes sports and recreational facilities including a basketball court, a gymnasium and a cricket ground adjoining a jogging track. The campus is Wi-Fi enabled, with 24*7 connectivity. The academic block of the Faculty of Management Studies, an eco-green building as per the vision of Sri Sri Ravishankar, offers fully air-conditioned spacious class rooms with LCD projectors as well as faculty rooms, a language lab and tutorial rooms. The computer lab has more than 150 workstations with an IT infrastructure that parallels any international university. While two of the auditoriums, with a seating capacity of 300 students each, feature state-of-the-art audio visual facilities. Apart from hosting technical events, the auditoriums are also used for the health, wellbeing and spiritual integration of students.
The Sri Sri University takes pride in offering a curriculum that enriches both domain expertise and life skills. The Art of Living Programme is an integral part of the curriculum at the University. The programme equips the students with tools and techniques to handle stress as well as understand and handle their minds, without which any education is incomplete. Thus the university offers an education that is a blend of Western innovation with the spiritual values and wisdom of the East. The Sri Sri University today offers value-based education in specialized areas of study including management; yoga; governance; and the performing arts.
