Rashtram School of Public Leadership, which evolved from the Vision India Foundation (VIF), was started by alumni from the various IITs and management institutions in 2021. Over 2000 alumni have successfully completed their executive programmes, summer schools, and online courses. Many are leading the change in Rural Development, Academia, Electoral Politics, Government, Education, Armed Forces, and Environment, to name a few domains of impact.


Rashtram offer various Degree, Post-Graduate Degree, Executive Programmes and Short Online Programmes.


Rashtram Accelerator — the 1-year residential flagship programme of the institute — incorporates a unique pedagogy modelled on India’s Gurukul tradition, fused with heuristics and an immersive learning milieu. The first batch of learners were welcomed to the campus in July 2021. Rashtram has thus set the stage for fostering an ecosystem of public leadership that can adapt efficiently to the VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) and spearhead good governance and meaningful social change initiatives.
