MESSAGE FROM HON. CHANCELLOR DR. S. B. MUJUMDAR

SYMBIOSIS FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMME IN GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP

Mujumdar

Since its inception in 1971, "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" (The world is one family) has been the motto of Symbiosis and continues to be in its DNA. It is only those with generous and noble minds who regard the world as one family. This is the thought expressed in one of the Upanishadas of ancient India.


We in Symbiosis International University have designed a unique fellowship programme which will promote and propagate the concept of global citizenship.


In a post-modern world of today, that is experiencing reiteration of patriotism and nationalism, a Symbiosis Fellowship Programme in Global Citizenship, offers the best platform to exchange values drawn from every culture and be truly nationalist, yet appreciate and accept diversity with compassion, tolerance and peace. For, only when you love your country will you be able to love other nations and the world.


This fellowship looks at global sharing of ideas and knowledge to achieve common goals for a sustainable world. I am sure every Symbiosis Fellow will be a true global citizen in letter, spirit and action.


My best wishes to the programme.
