Azim Premji University was established in 2010 by the Azim Premji Foundation. The
Foundation has a clear purpose: to contribute to a just, equitable, humane and sustainable
society. The Foundation works extensively with public school systems in many states in
India. The University supports Education and related fields of human development through
its post-graduate programmes of study.
The University offers liberal undergraduate degrees in the Sciences, Mathematics, Economics
and Humanities and post-graduate degrees in the fields of Education, Development, Public
Policy and Law and Development. The University is committed to try and ensure diversity.
The Undergraduate programme aims to prepare and nurture highly motivated, socially
conscious and reflective citizens capable of the autonomous learning that is key to wellbeing.
Thus, the hope is that the graduates of this programme will be educated in the widest sense of
the term, and will strive for both personal achievement in their areas of interest and for
meaningful public engagement.
We invite faculty who resonate with the purpose of the University and are keen to contribute to
the design, development and delivery of the philosophy courses in our Undergraduate programme
