The first duty of a university is to teach wisdom, not trade; character not technicalities. -Winston Churchill

Renaissance aims to provide an environment to students, making them aware of the importance of ethics and human values in life and the problems, our society and nation is facing so as to make them more conscious of self and surroundings. Renaissance works to make students morally literate and socially responsible so that they prove to be valuable not only for technical competency but also for work-ethics of any organization and are inspired to utilize their education for larger interests of society and nation.
