Visva Bharati University, West Bengal was established in 1863 by Debendranath Tagore, the father of the great poet Rabindranath Tagore. Visva Bharati Shantiniketan was inaugurated in 1921. Visva Bharati was declared as a central university and an institution of national importance by an act of Parliament in 1951. It was granted the status of a unitary, teaching and residential university.
The status and function of all the major institutions have been redefined in successive Amendment Acts and the University has continued to grow by giving accreditation to new institutions in response to needs newly felt. The school has reshaped itself into a fully-fledged modern University with diverse concern and interests. The University has established several institutes and colleges under its management for the purpose of imparting education at all levels.
