In a momentous achievement, Teerthanker Mahaveer University (TMU), Moradabad, has been honoured with the prestigious "Top University in India for Quality Education Award."

The award was received by TMU's Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Raghuveer Singh, during the Education Leaders Conclave and Award Summit on Pedagogical Innovations in Education. The event was graced by the presence of former Union Minister and Member of Parliament, Suresh Prabhu, as the chief guest.
A Remarkable Achievement
The acknowledgement of TMU as the top university for quality education underscores the institution's unwavering commitment to academic excellence and its dedication to implementing the National Education Policy 2020. TMU Chancellor Suresh Jain, GVC Manish Jain, and Executive Director Akshat Jain have praised the Vice-Chancellor and the university's experienced faculty for this remarkable achievement. Their resolute focus on maintaining academic quality and adaptability to global changes has truly paid off.
Apart from Teerthanker Mahaveer University, representatives from other universities across the country also participated in the summit. Over 90 speakers shared their insights during the event, and more than 300 decision-makers in the field of school and higher education were in attendance. This recognition firmly establishes TMU as a leader in the higher education landscape.
Strengthening Industry-University Collaboration
During the summit, Prof. Raghuveer Singh, Vice-Chancellor of TMU, emphasized the importance of Industry-University collaboration. He proposed the adoption of the "triple helix model," which calls for government, industries, and universities to collaborate closely. In this model, the government can contribute positively through appropriate policy changes and incentives, while the industry can play a significant role by offering student internships and faculty immersion programs. This approach ensures that the workforce is equipped with the skills needed for the job market.
Furthermore, Prof. Singh took the concept a step further by advocating for the "quadruple helix model." In this expanded model, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), local artisans, and technicians are also brought into the fold. Their involvement is crucial as it provides students with real-world work experiences, which are instrumental in shaping their careers. Prof. Singh highlighted the need for a national policy that encompasses these concepts to foster continuous improvement in the education sector.
