Sulabh International University of Sanitation (Proposed)
Sulabh International Social Service Organization, a pioneer in the field of sanitation under the guidance of Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak, Founder of Sulabh Sanitation and Social Reform Movement, is taking steps to initiate by opening of Sulabh International University of Sanitation (Proposed) that will help in bringing hygiene and sanitation related awareness to the youth and the general public at large. Students passing out of the university will work as missionaries of sanitation that will result in a clean and livable environment.
Sulabh International University of Sanitation (Proposed) will be committed to excellence in Research and Development in Environmental Science and Engineering and will provide sustainable technological solutions of the environmental problems faced by the governments, industries and the society as a whole, especially the underprivileged people of India.
A dream project of Dr. Pathak, the Sulabh International University of Sanitation (Proposed) will also help the country to propagate the message of Mahatma Gandhi and Sulabh. The wave of Swachchatta initiated by Dr. Pathak, about four decades ago has become a Tsunami with the involvement of visionary leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi. This initiative will be like an oblation into the Yagya of Swachchatta.
It will be the first university of its kind in India. It will produce consultants and professionals to work in the field of development and public health, providing an in-depth understanding of how to deliver effective modern water supply, sanitation and other public health interventions in urban and rural areas in low-income and transitional economies.
It will serve as an education and training resource centre for sanitation and environment management experts.
With the visionary ideas of social scientist Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak, the University will concentrate its efforts in the areas of research and development, provide public/private consultancy services as well as tertiary education.
The University will be dedicated solely to training and increasing the capacity of our human resource to analyse, design and implement effectively the solutions that will help make not just India but the whole planet clean.
It will have a strong focus on the development of practical and policy skills and will address the critical future challenges of climate change, population growth and urbanization. Emphasis will be laid on technical interventions in water supply, sanitation and solid waste management.
The Sulabh International University of Sanitation (Proposed) will provide different courses for youth, consultants and professionals working in international development and public health sectors. These courses will train students in the essential skills and knowledge required to plan and implement along with communities, water supply and sanitation projects and programmes worldwide, particularly in less developed countries.
What will make it stand out will be its outreach to practitioners – using its knowledge base and applied research to develop the capacity of individuals and organizations throughout the world, promoting the integration of social, technical, economic, institutional and environmental activities as a prerequisite for development.
