Institute of Advanced Studies in Education
The Institute of Advance Studies in Education (IASE) is a deemed university in Sardarshahr, Rajasthan, India. The university is accredited as a "B+" institute by the NAAC. The university was founded in 1950, on one of the most remote regional suburbs in the state of Rajasthan; it aims to promote higher education among those living in rural areas especially the villagers. The Institute of Advanced Studies in Education was sponsored by a non-governmental, non-profit registered society, namely, Gandhi Vidya Mandir (GVM). The Government of India accorded it the formal recognition of University, under Section 3 of the UGC Act-1956 vide notification F.9/29/2000-U.3 of 25 June 2002, and by the UGC vide notification F.6-25/2001 (cpp-i) of 27 July 2002. IASE is also NS.EN ISO 9001:2000 certified organization.

The university is nestled like an oasis in the Thar desert, near the town of Sardarshahr in India’s north-western state of Rajasthan. It is about 300 km west of Delhi, 125 km east of Bikaner and 230 km north of Jaipur (connected by rail and road). GVM has a triad of helipads. GVM was founded in 1950, on a 1200-acre piece of land, on one of the harshest and most backward terrains. Acutely prone to droughts, heat and cold waves, epidemics and other travesties of nature, GVM has striven to alleviate the acute backwardness through permanent and ad hoc programmes of education, culture, livelihood, health and hygiene, vocations etc. It is dotted by large parks, gardens, playgrounds, auditoria, cultural and spiritual centres.

The rich cultural and spiritual heritage of India and propagation of Gandhian ideals of Ahimsa, Sarvoday and Universal Brotherhood are given due importance in the curricular, as well as periodical, programmes. GVM was the vision of Shri Kanhaiyalal Dugar who later embraced sanyas and came to be known as Swami Shri Ramsharanji, an embodiment of universal humanism. He, with the blood and sweat of many devoted social workers, philanthropists, students and staff, created this epitome of emulative excellence in human endeavor. Shri Dugar dedicated his entire life and all his personal wealth to the cause of education and uplifting of the down-trodden.

GVM boasts over 10,000 resident aand non-resident students, from pre-primary to Ph.D. level. There is a separate multi-faculty colleges for girls and co-educational colleges in Ayurved, Para-Medical, Life Sciences, Veterinary Sciences, IT and Management Engineering, Art, Science and Commerce. There are well-planned hostels (A.C./Air-cooled also) for 2000 students, separate for boys and girls, amidst a self-contained colony of academicians. GVM was conceptualized and nurtured as a university. The studies in education started in 1953, through its basic Teacher’s Training College. The degree courses started in 1956, postgraduate in 1958 and the facility for Ph.D was added in 1968. ‘The Institute of Advanced Studies in Education’ came into being under the Centrally Sponsored Scheme of Education in 1993.

The new millennium heralded the dawn of a dream-come true. After over 50 years, Institute of Advanced Studies in Education of GVM was formally recognized as Deemed to be University of Government of India and UGC, in 2002. IASE is India’s premiere institute in the faculty of Eeducation, facilitating teacher’s training from primary level up to the doctoral stage.

IASE has had a glorious past. It has grown from strength-to-strength and its 50-year history is a saga of strides, struggles and successes. ‘Service with Sincerity’ is their watchword and the motto is ‘Gyanbhanur-bhasatam’ — ‘May the Sun of Knowledge Shine’ (the sun knows no discrimination and engulfs the world with light and warmth).

Pioneer in distance education in India

IASE started a distance education program in early 2003, which achieved instant success due to the need-based and career-oriented courses, providing requisite flexibility and a variety of offerings, delivery system and processes. The university has built a fine network of Study Centres, touching all nooks and corners of the country, making the education available at the students’ doorstep.

All it courses/programs offered by the University in distance mode from 2003 to 2005 have been granted one time ex-post-facto approval by DEC F.No.DEC/IASE/RJ/03/5449, dated 29-8-07 on the basis of the joint committee.
