- About Jio Institute
Jio Institute is a multi-disciplinary higher education institute set up as a philanthropic initiative by Reliance Industries Ltd. and Reliance Foundation. The Institute is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence by bringing together global scholars and thought leaders and providing an enriching student experience through world-class education, relevant research platforms, and a culture of innovation.
- Governing Council
The Governing Council is the principal governing and policy-making body of the Jio Institute. It consists of eminent persons from diverse domains contributing to and upholding the Institution's ideals and traditions.
- Our Growth Plan
Our vision is to build an exemplary Indian academic institution of international repute that contributes to industry and society by providing a robust interdisciplinary research platform to innovators, leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. Jio Institute believes that a vibrant solution-oriented research ecosystem is of vital importance to pole-vault from being followers of best practices to creators of next practices.
To build such a base of enabling culture and environment, we are following a well thought-out strategy of initially focusing on developing a range of postgraduate, doctoral, and post-doctoral programmes across disciplines. This will build a culture of research and innovation, and attract top-notch global scholars and researchers. The benefits of a strong research foundation will then percolate down when we subsequently launch undergraduate programmes in the next stage.
Set in a serene environment overlooking the Arabian sea, our 52-acre digitally-enabled campus in Ulwe, Navi Mumbai harmoniously combines nature and state-of-the-art infrastructure. In addition to smart classrooms, modern laboratories, and a well-stocked library, the campus has several open spaces including walkways, sports facilities, jogging tracks, lawns as well as an open amphitheatre. The campus is well-connected to different parts of Mumbai through roads, rail, and water. It is situated near Mumbai's upcoming international airport and Mumbai Trans-Harbour Link.
