Founders Day – 22nd October 2020
Every year, DY Patil University celebrates its Founders Day on 22nd October. It is the birth anniversary of our founder President, Padmashree Dr. D. Y. Patil. Dadasaheb, as he is affectionately called, has been a pillar of strength for the DY Patil University since its inception. Naturally, this day was a momentous occasion for our University faculty, staff and students.
The University started its Founders Day celebrations by hoisting the flags of all the educational institutions in the DY Patil Group. These flags were hoisted by the respective Head of Institutions. The flag hoisting ceremony was followed by our honourable Chancellor Dr. Vijay D Patil addressing all the attendees of the function. Vijay sir spoke fondly about his father, and shared Dada’s achievements which gave everyone present, a sense of gratitude and pride. Our Chancellor Dr. Vijay D Patil Sir then proceeded to inaugurate the School of online learning on this special day.
The event then continued with the inauguration of the website of the School of online learning. The website was inaugurated by our honourable trustee Mrs. Shivani Patil Ma’am. All the dignitaries and students present at the function were instructed about the website in detail by the (designation) Mrs. Vandana Mishra. The event finally came to a conclusion with our honourable Vice Chancellor Dr. Shirish Patil delivering the vote of thanks to all our dignitaries and head of institutions for their presence at the Founders Day celebrations.
DY Patil University has and will always remain indebted to Dr. D. Y. Patil for providing affordable education and healthcare services to society. His benevolent and visionary nature and constant efforts have ensured that DY Patil University is a leading name in the education sector.
