Symbiosis International University
What is the Symbiosis International University?
Symbiosis International University (SIU) is a prestigious family of educational institutions, comprising universities, colleges, centers, and schools, that collectively boast a rich tradition of delivering quality education for over half a century. The SIU journey traces back to 1971 when an inspiring incident prompted its inception. Dr. S. B. Mujumdar, the founder of Symbiosis, witnessed a Mauritian student's battle with jaundice and the compassionate efforts of a girl who delivered food through a hostel window due to restrictions on female access to the male hostel. Touched by this situation, Dr. Mujumdar decided to create an institution aimed at easing the challenges faced by foreign students in India. The name "Symbiosis," derived from the realm of life science, symbolizes the mutually beneficial coexistence of different organisms, a fitting choice given Dr. Mujumdar's background as a botany professor. SIU's motto, "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam," translating to "The World Is One Family," encapsulates its core values of caring, nurturing, and fostering a diverse and harmonious environment. SIU has since grown into a dynamic institution, hosting over 40,000 Indian and international students and offering them a holistic educational experience, global exposure, and a genuine immersion in Indian culture and hospitality. With a steadfast commitment to promoting international understanding through quality education, SIU remains a beacon of excellence in higher education.
