Working towards real social change

After an extraordinary decade, a new exciting journey ahead

In 2010, Azim Premji University was set up by the Azim Premji Foundation with a vision to contribute to the creation of a just, equitable, humane and sustainable society. This social purpose has been central to all our work of the past decade: from our teaching programmes, research and work in the field, as well as our institutional systems and processes. 

The last decade has been extraordinarily fulfilling for all of us: teachers, members of our University across functions, and students and alumni. We have built a deep foundation for our institution with teams of 350 people, 3314 alumni, and reaching over 10000 practitioners annually through our continuing education programmes, with a rich and vast portfolio of research and publications. 

Over the last decade, our work towards education for social change has found deep roots. All of us – teachers, members of our University in different functions, and students – are moved and driven and motivated by this social purpose every day. 

Looking ahead

Our dedication to work towards real change to make a small difference has strengthened and we realise we need to do much more. It is with great excitement that we are looking ahead to greater growth and expansion, to new Universities in Bhopal, Ranchi, and the Northeast.

We hope to have 8000 – 10000 students, and a growing portfolio of programmes across undergraduate and postgraduate levels. We will grow our team to 2000 people across all functions, with manifold expansion in our initiatives and research for the public good.

We want you to join us

As we grow, we are looking for people driven by a commitment to a social purpose and better future. We invite you to be a part of our team. Whatever your role, you will join us in building an institution together. 

We make sure your work with us will be meaningful and fulfilling to growing as an individual and in your contribution to a larger purpose. We are a diverse space, with people from across all walks of life. Our aim is to be cooperative and caring as we take on bigger challenges.

We are looking for people to join us in teaching, research, and administration. We value your expertise, and in equal measure, your commitment to this social purpose.

Join us as we grow in leap and bounds.
