The Trehan Family Ford School Fund

July 21, 2014

The Trehans came to the University of Michigan from India in 1964 with about $1,000. Mrs. Adarsh Trehan, now a Ford School Committee member, received a master's degree in Political Science from the University of Michigan. Ranvir Trehan, who studied operations engineering, went on to start SETA Corp. as a one-man information technology solutions provider in 1987. By 2004, when it merged with Apptis Inc., SETA had more than 600 employees and annual sales of about $86 million.

Through their Trehan Foundation, Adarsh and Ravir recently established the Trehan Family Ford School Fund in the amount of $125,000. These generous funds will help support the Ford School Centennial Reunion celebration, as well as provide critical support for students.

The Trehan Foundation also supports collaborative work across the campus, including the College of Engineering, the School of Public Health, and the Office of the Provost. Their gifts are focused on supporting not only the best and brightest students, but furthering creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
