Message from Mr. Shiv Nadar

Founder, HCL Group. Founder & Chairman, Shiv Nadar Foundation.

The World Inequality Report, 2018 highlights the rapid pace at which inequality across the world is increasing. This is a particularly acute problem in India, where over 50% of the population is below the age of 25. Education is perhaps the single most important input which can narrow this gap, and the Shiv Nadar Foundation is designed to create enduring institutions which will assist bright young students in achieving their full potential.

The latest of these institutions is being created in Chennai. Chennai has been very dear to my heart, and one of the aspects that I appreciate most is the culture of excellence in education. The high density of brilliant minds makes it a logical home for a global institution. The philosophy of 'simple living, high thinking' establishes an environment where solid academic rigour and boundless curiosity go hand in hand. Shiv Nadar University Chennai will draw strength from and strengthen this culture, and spread it's light across the world.
