Reliance Foundation, the philanthropic wing of Reliance Industries Ltd, plans to set up a multi-disciplinary university – “Reliance University” in the country modeled on the lines of American Universities like University of Pennsylvania. This initiative would be launched under the chairmanship of Nita Ambani.

This announcement is made by Mukesh Ambani, the chairman of RIL, during his acceptance speech after being honoured with the Dean’s Medal by the University of Pennsylvania School of Engineering and Applied Science on Friday. The medal was conferred for his visionary leadership in the application of engineering and technology for the betterment of mankind.

The Reliance Group is looking at the option of establishing the educational institute outside Mumbai or Delhi. The move comes seven years after it established the Dhirubhai Ambani International School in Mumbai.
