Anil Agarwal donates $1 billion to set up university

Anil Agarwal, chairman, Vedanta Resources Plc, is keen to establish a world class, multi-disciplinary university in India, with a vision to developing India’s education and research infrastructure.

To be established with an endowment of up to $1 billion, Vedanta University will be of the calibre of institutes like Harvard, Stanford and Oxford, a Vedanta media statement said on Thursday.

Based on a ‘not-for-profit’ philosophy, the university will strive to impart world-class education and drive a cutting-edge research agenda, with an envisaged student population of more than 100,000 in the long term.

The university will also aim to nurture all-round excellence, beyond the academic dimension, to produce tomorrow’s Nobel Laureates, Olympic champions and community leaders.

  1. Kudos to Anil Agarwal for this generosity, that will be remembered for generations to come.

    The Vedanta University location is an excellent
    choice. Pristine, and scenic, but only an hour away from the state capital, there could not have been better choice.
