Azim Premji University today introduced itself in Ranchi, capital city of Jharkhand. 

The Azim Premji University project was inaugurated by Chief Minister Hemant Soren. 

It is planned to set up a hospital and a medical college as part of the University at Ranchi, it is learnt. Prior to this Azim Premji had set up a new Master’s programme in Public Health at its Bhopal campus. 

Azim Premji is on record saying that his university in Bhopal was already operational, with the first batch of over 200 students enrolled in undergraduate and postgraduate programs. 

This network of universities expected to play a pivotal role in nurturing young leaders dedicated to driving social change. 


In Bhopal, the university, founded 13 years ago, has witnessed 3,500 of its alumni actively engaging in various social sectors across the nation, making valuable contributions to areas including education, healthcare, livelihoods, governance and sustainability. 

Additionally, it initiated its foray into public health two years ago and has since made a substantial impact. It currently operates three health centres in low-income settlements in Bengaluru, benefiting over 50,000 urban underprivileged people. 

The university plans to expand these efforts to additional locations including Ranchi this year.
