Dr. Stya Paul

(October 4, 1919 - June 7, 2010)
Founder Chancellor
Apeejay Stya University

Dr. Stya Paul, eminent industrialist, educationist, philanthropist and freedom fighter, provided the foundation and inspiration for the emergence of the Apeejay Stya Group & the Apeejay Education Society as trusted symbols of quality and excellence in India’s industrial and educational landscape.

A pioneering entrepreneur with a far-sighted vision of the future, he recognised the great role that industry could play in providing quality education. The 24 schools and institutions of higher learning established by him have flowered to become symbols of excellence in their various disciplines, moulding the lives and careers of future generations of the country. The year 2010 also saw the realisation of his dream of setting up the Apeejay Stya University — a seat of global learning that would bring about transformation of society through valuebased education, man-making and nation-building.

We believe that academic excellence should go parallel with human excellence, where it is not a disgrace if dreams are unfulfilled, but it is, if we “ have no dreams to dream.”
