In October 2005, the long-standing dream of Smt. Rukmini Shyama Raju to educate the youth became a reality with the establishment of Rukmini Educational Charitable Trust (RECT). The RECT is a Charitable Trust to promote, establish, and conducts developmental activities in the fields of Arts, Commerce, Engineering, Environmental Science, Management, Science & Technology, Law, Architecture, Performing Arts, and others.
To meet this aim, the Trust has set up the REVA Group of Educational Institutions comprising REVA Institute of Technology and Management, REVA Institute of Science and Management, REVA Institute of Management Studies, REVA Institute of Education, REVA First Grade College, REVA Independent PU College Kattigenahalli, REVA Independent PU College-Ganganagar, and REVA Independent PU College Sanjaynagar, and REVA University. Through these institutions, the Trust seeks to fulfill its vision of providing world-class education and creating abundant opportunities for the youth to excel in academics.
The Rukmini Educational Charitable Trust is driven by a purpose to nurture students who are in pursuit of quality education and excellence. REVA, today, is a family of 10 institutions providing education from pre-University to post-graduation and providing research and resource support to PhD degree aspirants.
REVA has a faculty of well-qualified and experienced teaching professionals, most of whom are doctorates. The dedicated faculty is strongly supported by committed administrative and technical staff. Over 15,000 students study different courses across REVA’s three campuses equipped with an exemplary state-of-the-art infrastructure of global standards and an exciting environment for the knowledge-driven community.
Every great human enterprise is powered by the vision of extraordinary individuals and is sustained by the people who derive their motivation from the founders. Dr. P. Shyama Raju, the Chairman of the Trust, is a developer and builder of repute, a captain of the industry in his own right, and the Chairman & Managing Director of the DivyaSree Group of companies.
The provenance of setting up these top-notch educational institutions was fuelled by the philanthropic instincts of Dr. P. Shyama Raju. He believes in doing public good and in keeping with his support to other socially relevant charities such as maintaining the Richmond Road Park, building and donating a police station, gifting assets to organizations providing accident and trauma care, working on TTD Devasthanams, leading national campaigns like Jagruti to add value to his portfolio.
