Rishihood University has announced the appointment of Shobhit Mathur as its new Vice Chancellor. Mathur has been elevated from his position of Pro Vice Chancellor and Dean, Rashtram School of Public Leadership. He succeeds the existing VC Kamlesh Misra, who retired from formal academics and will be moving to the US.

After a B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT Bombay and MS in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Washington, Mathur has worked extensively in the volunteering space with his stint at Youth For Seva, and later with the establishment of the Vision India Foundation – which transformed into the Rashtram School of Public Leadership. He holds an MBA from the Indian School of Business.

In this new role, Mathur brings almost two decades of experience and a more novel and millennial approach to the University’s core philosophy of creating a learning environment that inspires people to achieve ‘Rishihood’ by providing an innovative approach to education that fits the needs of the students and the communities in the post-pandemic world.

Speaking about his vision, Shobhit Mathur, Vice-Chancellor, Rishihood University said, “What are the biggest challenges facing humanity? Climate change, terrorism, mental depression – would probably come to your mind first. What are the solutions that we have for them? We need an integrated approach that results in harmony within oneself and with nature. This is the core of the Indian Knowledge Systems – it connects you with yourself, your community, and the creation. Importantly, it provides a praxis in the form of Yoga, Ayurveda and rituals that allows the knowledge to be practiced in a simplified and distilled manner by the larger populace. Imbibing and practicing this knowledge will be the key trait of aspiring leaders of the future. Our education system needs to imbibe this.”
