The honouring was made on the occasion of an awards ceremony held at Kanha Shanti Vanam in Hyderabad. The event witnessed an elite presence of 10,000+ attendees from academia including nation-wide Directors and Vice Chancellors of top institutions. Millions of others joined virtually from over 150 countries.

Feeling immensely happy on the national honour of LPU, Chancellor Dr. Ashok Kumar Mittal expressed gratitude, and shared that, “LPU campus is always youthfully vibrant with many thousands of multinational students. In spite of representing diverse cultures and creeds, all of them always coexist holding aloft LPU flag with global achievements in various fields.”

Further, congratulating the hard working LPU team and dedicating the glorious award to it, Dr Mittal expressed that inclusion of this unique award to academic institutions and propagators is to bring tolerance and happiness among the present-day students. Institutions ought to teach students about the importance of happiness in life- that always brings forth peace and productivity all around.
