About Us

Azim Premji Foundation (2001) is a not-for-profit organisation working to accomplish its vision of a just, equitable, humane and sustainable society. The work of the Foundation is organised into three units: Field Institutes, which along with Azim Premji Schools, carry out the Foundation’s mission on the ground and engage in education policy decisions at state and national levels; the University in Bengaluru (2010) that contributes to the social sector through teaching programmes and research and upholds high standards of quality and inclusion in higher education; and Philanthropy (2014) that supports, through multi-year grants, other not-for-profit-organisations serving the most vulnerable sections of society. https://www.azimpremjifoundation.org

As mentioned above, Azim Premji University was founded in 2010 and started offering degree programmes in 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, especially with regard to inclusion and quality.

The University is focused on education and other domains of human development, including livelihoods, governance and policy, public health, and sustainability. At the undergraduate level, the University offers a broad-based liberal education – across physical and biological sciences, humanities and social sciences – integrated with interdisciplinary fields of human development that are the overall focus of the University.

The University initiated the translation of higher educational resources with the purpose of providing access to these in languages other than English to a larger number of students belonging to diverse socioeconomic backgrounds in India. This initiative was begun with the belief that the availability of quality resources in Indian languages will support students to engage more deeply and thoroughly with concepts and ideas. The translation efforts are currently being carried out in Hindi and Kannada, with a view to building discourses in these Indian languages.
