The University and the township of Vallabh Vidyanagar on which sprawls the University campus have not been created by any executive order of the State, neither have they been created by one or few wealthy people. Indeed, this land of learning and the Seat of Higher Education - The University - has been created by a unique co-operative contribution of a large number of farmers of this rural area, who were inspired and enthused by the vision dedication and sacrifices of Sardar Patel, Shri Bhaikaka and Shri Bhikhabhai.
