For all its students. Parul University has commissioned Armed Forces Motivational Cell which is headed by Retired Officers of the Indian Armed Forces who are committed and dedicated towards making the efforts to prepare the students for their participation in the various NCC related initiatives.
“As a University our goal has not only been to focus on preparing students for their careers upon completing their studies, but also to ensure that as they pursue their medical, legal, pharmaceutical and technical studies, they also get to develop within them a strong desire and passion for national service. Having our students excelling on such prominent state-wide levels of the National Cadet Corps is by all means a moment of great pride for us, and I am sure we will have many more students coming to display such an essence of patriotism”, said the University’s Vice Chancellor, Dr. M. N. Patel.
