An educationist, technocrat, academic and philanthropist, Dr. H. M. Desai has striven to serve the local and global community through science, engineering and technical education. In an illustrious career spanning over 5 decades, he has grown from a lecturer to a principal, to finally becoming the Vice Chancellor for two universities of national repute: Gujarat University and Dharmsinh Desai University. He has been the President of Association of Indian Universities (AIU). He is also a Member of the Royal Society of Chemists, London (UK) and a Member of American Institute of Chemical Engineers (USA).
In addition to education, Dr. H. M. Desai also spearheads the philanthropic causes of DDU.

He not only established the ultra-modern Dental College and Dental Hospital at DDU, but also ensured that it is accessible to the poorest of people.
