Soon after independence of India in 1948 , then President Shri Radhakrishnan
, made an
important recommendation, for the appointment of Dean Student welfare and creation of an office
for students welfare in all educational institutes to reduce the disparity prevailing that time among
Indian society. In 1960, UGC through education commission again directed to all universities to
establish an office of Dean Student Welfare
for providing opportunity for holistic development to
inoculate the understanding of their social responsibility of passing out students in the spirit to make
them a sensible citizen who can work in national interest .
It has been long recognized that basic purpose of education is to bring out treasure within the student for social & economic development of nation. The aim of higher education system should be to provide an environment for deeper and more harmonious human development to include values of general personality development, sense to respect Indian tradition and loyalty to ancient Indian culture. Accordingly, Student Welfare office at IGDTUW provide ample scope, opportunities & facilities for multidimensional development of personality & leadership qualities among students. Students effectively participate in social & cultural activities, sports activities, literally activities, professional activities under various clubs and societies under the mentorship of experienced faculty advisors.
The DSW office at IGDTUW, functions as nodal centre to promote cooperation among students on campus. It actively functions for conducting various activities for Welfare of students. It very consciously takes into account the socio-economic diversities against cultural relativism.
