Institute of Gandhian Studies

Institute of Gandhian Studies

Established in the memory of Shri Jamnalal Bajaj in 1987, Gandhi Vichar Parishad also known as Institute of Gandhian Studies at Wardha has kept Gandhiji's ideologies alive and thriving amongst his keen followers.

The Institute offers an entire spectrum of courses and training, conducts research and seminars, provides counseling and evaluation services and undertakes publication work on various topics of Gandhian thoughts and actions. The various courses conducted in the campus by the Institute includes:

  • Post Graduate Diploma recognised by the University
  • Short term course for University students from all over India
  • Regional camps in regional languages for grassroots workers as well as University students
  • Three month course for women constructive workers
  • Inter religious study courses
  • Courses for workers of trade union, Panchayat Raj and rural activists
  • Study on peace, non-violence and conflict resolution

Gandhiji, the world's early environmentalist, strongly advocated conservation of natural resources. It is only fitting that the Institute's campus has become the venue of the first district level Renewable Energy Education Park of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India. Dedicated measures are also being taken to develop the campus as an eco- friendly model for energy and water conservation.
