The University of Mysore has been a premier institution of higher learning for more than eight decades now. Starting its activities in the premises of Maharaja's College in 1916 and expanding its functions on the sprawling 800 acre Manasagangotri Campus in 1960s, the University has made significant strides and has accomplished phenomenal growth and development. Currently, more than 60 Postgraduate programmes from Anthropology to Zoology are run on the main campus of Gangotri and at the two Postgraduate Centres in Hassan and Mandya. Some of the new additions are in the field of Information Technology, Bio-technology and Management Sciences. The thrust is on socially relevant and Career-oriented courses. Introduction of Self-financing Schemes, Establishment of a Centre for Information Science and Technology, Accreditation by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council with Five Star grading, renovations of precious heritage buildings. and establishment of a National Centre for the History of Science are but a few examples that reflect the present activity. In consonance with its hoary tradition and reputation for excellent teaching and learning, the University of Mysore has been blending consolidated conventional disciplines with emerging fields. Hence, plans are afoot to establish a full-fledged Centre for International Programmes, a Center for Career Development and Student Placement, an Institute of Indigenous Knowledge Systems, among other activities. It is but natural that we focus not only on the present and future. strategies, but as well provide a glimpse of the journey that we have undertaken in the past. A large number of our former faculty, millions: of alumni and the general public certainly have high expectations of and aspirations for this great institution.
