SHIATS Vision and Mission

Mission :

To ensure successive development of Agricultural Education, Research, Extension, Science, Technology and other disciplines in the State.


SHECS is an Educational and Charitable Society undertakes all levels of educational activities, i.e., primary, secondary and higher, professional education, Agriculture and technology for all round improvement in the quality of life in India. The SHECS operates with the vision “Gospel and Plough” which means Gospel of Jesus Christ preached with power for the improvement in the quality of life of all human beings living on earth. The power of Gospel could be seen in the power of knowledge shared, technology dissemination, technology development, technology innovations and ultimate usage. Thus, the Plough indicates technology part. The mission “Feed the Hungry” (Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat” Matthew 14:16). This word of Jesus Christ gave a drive for mission to the Founder Dr. Sam Higginbottom and he landed in India to develop and establish an Agricultural Institute at Allahabad. Thus the power of Gospel was expressed in the actions of Dr. Sam Higginbottom by establishing an institution that could cater the needs of peasants and the students of agriculture. Ultimately preparing citizens imbued with the zeal of service to the mankind by promoting and disseminating technology that would ensure food security to India.

In order to continue in our mission under the vision of Gospel & Plough, it is important for the institution to be financially viable and technically sound and spiritually living. Hon'ble Vice Chancellor proposed following measures must be taken in the next 5-10 years for achieving the three-fold strength for the institution: 

1) Economic Viability
The institution cannot survive only on the fees received from the students and learners. Education is not a commercial venture but it is deeply rooted in the strength of responsibility for social change. Education is to bring about change in the attitude of people and making them more responsible citizens and stewards of the planet – Earth. It is important that besides Government/State support, the university has to spin off industries related to its field of specializations. As far as SHUATS is concerned we need to venture in Agriculture industry sector. Industries so spinned off by the university will ultimately provide job opportunity to our graduates and also for the neighbourhood people. These industries are targeted to provide better food security first for the people of India and then for the neighbours in our vicinity. In order to accomplish this vision of financial and economical viability on long term basis I would suggest we must go for a minimum size holding of farm of 2000 acres and start industries such as piggery, poultry, goatery, processing, animal husbandry and dairying, seed production for cereals, pulses and vegetables. There is also possibility of establishing olive orchards which would attract less damage from the livestock, birds or animals and give good quality oil for human consumption.

2)Technological development:
Any technology developed by the university could be appropriate to solve the problems of the farmers, agriculture system, animal husbandry, dairy technology, human health, animal health and for the society as a whole. The technology must be patented and ultimately be transformed into an industry i.e. farm implements manufacturing, small implements, bullock drawn implements, implement design and manufacture and ultimately marketing within the country and its neighbor-hood. The technology must be innovative and compatible to the societal needs.

3) Spiritual health:
The Theological college, Bible school, Yeshu Darbar ministry must pursue with all our strength and supported by the management staff, students of the university. The Theological teachers will provide counselling and guidance for the students, staff undergoing any kind of pressure or stress or needing definition of their destiny. 

Hon’ble Vice Chancellor emphasized that if we move along with this three pronged approach, the institution will live long and be of greater service to the Nation and for the glory of its creator, “Lord Jesus Christ”.

He further enlightened the members that, three things are coming out of the vision statement, in order to continue our mission under the vision of ‘Gospel and Plough’. It is important for the institution to be financially viable, technically sound and spiritually living, so he proposed that measures need to be taken for the next 5-10 years to achieve this threefold strengths of the institution.
