Azim Premji University
Azim Premji University, Bangalore
Azim Premji University was established in Karnataka by the Azim Premji University Act 2010 as a not-for-profit University and is recognized by The University Grants Commission (UGC) under Section 2F. The beginnings of the University are in the learning and experience of a decade of work in elementary education by the Azim Premji Foundation.
The University was founded as one of the key responses to the constraints and challenges that the Foundation encountered both within and in the environment, and as part of a larger strategy to contribute to the Education and Development sectors in the country. We profess liberal and ‘humanistic’ values but at the same time define our intent unambiguously in the context of India’s social and political development. We consider independence and excellence in research to be critical but do not see the possibility of sharply separating knowledge from its purposes and consequences.
To contribute to the realisation of a just, equitable, humane and sustainable society. Prepare graduates with great competence, integrity and social commitment and expand the frontiers of knowledge in education, development and allied fields through research.
