To create leaders with moral and ethical values who can lead the society in the right direction
What’s the difference between being educated and being knowledgeable? In today’s world, almost everyone is educated, yet they have no knowledge of the subject they have studied. Hence, one might cite a strong disparity between the two terms.
The University that we present today understands this difference. With the motto ‘Knowledge is Power’, REVA University endorses the value of education and its practical applications. The University was established under the REVA University Act, 2012 by Dr. P. Shyama Raju, Founder and Chancellor of REVA University. It was set up to pursue the dream of his wife to provide quality education for deserving students.
Dr. Raju believes in the maxim Knowledge is Power as education has the power of transforming the lives of people. He founded the university to bring transformation in society with its smart educational policies. Under his able leadership, the University provides world-class education and holistic learning experience to the students while creating opportunities for the young generation to become career-ready. It has succeeded in its educational endeavors by imparting high-quality education, industry skills, and leadership skills to the students who are the nation-builders of the future.
