Azim Premji University Archives
The first Azim Premji University was set up in Bengaluru in 2010. Today it operates from a 110-acre campus. Azim Premji University, Bengaluru has been offering degree programmes since 2011. Its mandate is to run teaching programmes and conduct research to contribute to the social sector in India, and to be an exemplar higher education institution – with inclusion and quality.
The degree and short-term teaching programmes are focused on domains of human development, for example, Education, Livelihoods, Development, Governance and Policy, Public Health, and Sustainability. The undergraduate programmes offer a broad-based liberal education as envisioned in the NEP – along with fields of human development that are the overall focus of the University. The research programmes are designed for direct contribution to matters of policy and practice, in these fields of human development.
The Universities are entirely philanthropic. Currently, 89 per cent of the expenditure is borne by the Azim Premji Foundation. Approximately 60 per cent of its students are on scholarships offered by the University. The student body is very diverse, from across 26 states and varied socio-economic backgrounds.
The University also produces a large collection of teaching-learning material for free public use. These include magazines on school subjects, development case studies, translations of higher education material, et cetera.
