A compassionate soul that she is, Dr. Surana is also involved in the service for various orphanages and has actively supported the cause of the “Social and Eco” Environment. Dr. Surana has also participated in the rural development efforts of the Nation Service Scheme (NSS).

Given her multi-dimensional administrative talent, educational strategies as well as philanthropic social skills, SEI has no doubt emerged as one of the leading educational campuses with a high success rate in the country.
Student Engagement and Achievement that Stands Out
Incorporating an admirable infrastructure and facilities to the student’s aid and comfort, SEI has perfectly prepared itself.

A promoter of student involvement and engagement at extension activities, community services, and sustenance of academic environment, SEI also plans to add new courses in higher education. The institutions also welcome experts, scholars, and academicians from various walks of life, delivering their life experiences to the students and encouraging them to refine their abilities to meet the industry standards.
