" Service To Humanity Is Service To GOD"
Thirumuruga Kirupananda Variyar Thavathiru Sundara Swamigal Medical Educational and Charitable Trust (Vinayaka Missions) was founded in the year 1981 at Salem in TamilNadu, India. This is a Registered Trust, totally self-supporting, with the dedicated philanthropist and educationist Dr.A. Shanmugasundaram as the Founder Chairman.
Aims of the Trust
• To supplement the government's effort in increasing and improving the trained manpower in medical / technical and management fields through education in these areas, as a part of human resource development.
• Providing charitable services in the form of free medical and health services to the needy and under-previleged.
As a first step in pursuance of these aims, a humble beginning was made by establishing "Vinayaka Missions College of Pharmacy" at Salem in 1981. Since then a number of technical, medical, dental, homoeopathic, paramedical and teacher training institutions were established in different parts of India. Vinayaka Missions was established through a professional approach with dedication and commitment in teaching thus providing every student studying in our institutions a rich and rewarding experience.
The Chairman's insatiable thirst for continuous modernization and diversification has taken Vinayaka Mission's to great heights of glory in the conventional as well as progressive areas of medical and technical education. The welfare and prosperity of the society depend on the quality of human resources and largely on the progress made in the field of medical and technical education. Thus, with the aim of spreading technical and medical education of the highest academic standard to all aspirants, irrespective of caste, creed, religion and nationality, Vinayaka Missions University came into existence.
The conducive environment provided by the university helps every student to achieve excellence in their chosen field of specialization. Nearly 15,000 students are studying in various colleges and every year approximately 2000 medical, dental, homoeopathy, paramedical, engineering and management professionals besides arts & science graduates pass out of our campuses successfully. The dynamic environment created by the trust helps every student to develop rational, critical and creative powers thereby enabling the fullest possible intellectual and personal growth.
Close to 3000 staff members including renowned professors, readers, lecturers, technical and other experts serve our student community to achieve excellence in education and to make studying at our institution an extremely pleasurable and rewarding experience. The success of our university lies in its highly qualified and experienced faculty who are competent and dedicated to provide excellent education. VMU has pride in being the only institution in India that has established three medical colleges, one dental college, and two engineering colleges apart from other paramedical and homoeopathic programs.
