We at Rishihood University are committed to achieving a sustainable future keeping in mind that we are responsible and globally aware. Hence, our tagline Education for Impact comes alive. 

Education and research are explicitly recognized in a number of SDGs, and universities have a direct role in overcoming these problems. However, the contribution of universities to the SDGs is much broader as it can support the implementation of all SDGs as well as the implementation of the framework of SDGs itself. Some of the main areas of contribution include 

  1. Research
  2. Teaching and Learning
  3. Organizational governance, culture and operations at the university
  4. External Leadership
