Mumbai University – Empowering Education Through Innovation

Introduction :

         On May 10, 1857 Indians revolted on a large scale across India against the British East India Company. The company made tireless efforts to crush that uprising. As the prestige of the British was at stake behind this uprising, later in 1858, power was handed over to British sovereignty by the Queen’s Proclamation.

         Calcutta University was established on 24th January 1857 in the meantime i.e. before the revolt. That is, Calcutta University is the first university in India.

         Bombay University was established on 18th July 1857 as a result of the educational institution ‘Bombay Wood’s Education Dispatch’ operating in Bombay area during this uprising. The university is the second most established university in India.

         Madras University is the third university after Bombay University which was established on September 5, 1857.

       Hence Bombay University is the oldest and premier university in India. When the name of the city of Bombay was changed from Bombay to Mumbai, the name of ‘Bombay University’ was also changed to ‘Mumbai Vidyapeeth’ i.e. ‘University of Mumbai’ as per the notification of Maharashtra State Government.

       Now in April 2017, Mumbai University has been awarded A ++ grade by the NAAC – National Assessment and Accreditation Council, before which Mumbai University was awarded five star status in 2001. Also in 1996, this university has received the official gazette of the Government of India.

         Academic credibility, inclusiveness, quality knowledge and through that knowledge, good character development, excellent teaching, development of creativity, innovation, research, talent enrichment, and nation building are the hallmarks of the University of Mumbai.
