The Story Of Rickford

Mission Vision

The Foundation

The thought for Rickford University was conceived in 1971 when a meeting was held between the industry leaders and leading educators. During the meeting, the President Mr. Charles Bachmen had the anticipation to understand that distant learning technologies can take over the squeezing issues of the time, like, absence of academic opportunities that are confronted by restricted public funds for academic services.

All the individuals present at the meeting came up with the idea of having their own university. They approved the thought of a new university would help them make maximum use of distant learning technologies, along with the collaboration among the industry pioneers, renowned instructors and educators.
