Parent’s day celebrated every year on the fourth Sunday of July is a form of tribute to the most influential figures in every human being’s life. Pillars of strength and support, they guide every child in the right direction till they can take it up on their own. A reflection of the most fundamental institution called family; parents are the sustainers of well-being. Taking cue from these iconic figures, Sikkim Manipal University-Distance Education (SMU-DE) has modeled itself as an institution that follows the virtues of family and parents. With a family of 1.77 lakh students, SMU-DE has been a constant pillar of support guiding students to a great career in their chosen field. Offering a plethora of courses across 10 disciplines, SMU-DE over the years has created a benchmark for quality education that is practical and industry oriented.
