Garden City Education Trust was established in 1992 by Dr. Joseph V.G. with the support of like-minded educationists like Prof. Shivarudrappa – former Dean, Karnataka University, Dr. Hanumanthappa – former Vice Chancellor, Bangalore University, Prof V.B. Coutinho – former Vice Chancellor, Gulbarga University and Prof. Rame Gowda – former Vice Chancellor of the Karnataka State Open University.

The Trust was established to set up centres for educational excellence that would accept only qualitative practices nurturing students with value based education.

The Trust began its operations with Garden City College of Science and Management Studies which has an “A – Grade”, the highest conferred to an educational institution, when assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) – the premier accreditation body under the UGC consecutively in three cycles of accreditation. These institutions are ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14000:2004 certified.

In 2013, the Government of Karnataka passed the “Garden City University Act”, taking into consideration the merits of the Garden City Education Trust.

A new university campus is being developed in a lush green area spread over 50 acres of land, adjacent to the Volvo manufacturing plant. This is a part of the 150 acres township envisaged by Dr Joseph V G which would have Knowledge Parks, IT and BT Parks, Hotels and Convention Halls, Shopping Malls and Residential areas.

Our vision and belief that social development is an avenue for nation building, is inculcated through our approach and our policies
