The Rabindra Bharati University was established in 1962 to mark the birth centenary of the legendary poet Rabindranath Tagore, who was the first Indian as well as Asian recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature. It is a State University named after Tagore dedicated to the mission of disseminating his thoughts and ideas through humanities, social sciences, art and culture. The Rabindra Bharati University thus features uniqueness in projecting itself as a centre for higher learning in performing arts, fine arts, language, literature and social sciences. There are three major faculties Arts, Fine Arts and Visual Arts, housed in the Emerald Bower Campus while the original campus Jorasanko, now houses a museum, and hosts a number of events like Tagore’s birth and death anniversaries, or the annual University Convocation, to name just a few. Many renowned actors like Sisir Bhaduri, Ahindra Chaudhuri, Shambu Mitra, Kumar Ray, Manoj Mitra, Jogesh Chowdhury, famous singers like Suchitra Mitra, Sumitra Sen, Maya Sen, painters like Shanu Lahiri, Dharmanarayan Dasgupta, well-known musicians like Sisirkana Dhar Chowdhury, Timir Baran, Pandit Swapan Chowdhury, reputed art historians like Shovan Som have contributed their mites to its overall academic endeavours down these decades. Over the years, keeping in pace with contemporary times, the University, without losing sight of its basic identity, has ventured into new academic pastures by introducing courses in Geography, Human Rights and Human Development, Sociology, Environmental Studies and Mathematics. As a centre for higher learning the Rabindra Bharati University has been offering a variety of other courses to cater to the demands of the emerging academics-market interface for instance, foreign language courses are offered by the School of Languages and Culture. Apart from this, the University offers training courses in competitive examinations including NET and SET. The University also fulfils its social responsibility by offering successful courses in Adult Education, Computer Literacy as well as a course in Special Education for the differently-abled, particularly for the Visually Impaired.
The Rabindra Bharati University is a unique educational institution of higher learning that caters mostly to the students of the peripheries of West Bengal. Girls and boys from far-flung areas of the state and from backward strata of the society constitute more than seventy percent of the total strength of students. Yet the University takes pride in its share of international students ranging from Europe to Asia, who come, either through the Indian Council of Cultural Relations (ICCR), or on their own, to learn mainly Indian art and culture and to acquire a degree in academics underpinned by Tagore's philosophy.
Our University has substantial academic outputs in terms of drama productions, exhibition of art works in reputed galleries, songs and choreography endeavours, organising festivals, publication of art folios and academic journals, and joint cultural events, collaborative academic activities with institutions of repute at the national and the international level. Our students and faculties are encouraged by the University to present their work beyond the campus through exhibitions and programmes. Students also participate regularly in the inter-university programmes and have done their (alma mater) proud by winning prizes and awards at the state, regional, and national levels.
A very active Research Cell helps formulate and execute the research agenda of the University. One such effort is organizing a Research Week that brings to the discussion tables research scholars, faculty members and distinguished academics for fruitful exchanges that might open new vistas of research and broaden the academic horizon of this institute. The exchange programmes that the University participates by entering into Molls with the reputed Universities and educational institutions abroad, allows the faculties and students to get a wider exposure to various avenues of higher learning.
Many an eminent scholars have enriched our knowledge base speaking at the Rabindra Bharati University Distinguished Lecture Series. Occasional Papers are published by the University whereby these lectures are made available in the public domain.
Our unique identity as a University which does not offer engineering, technology, pure science and commerce streams and which yet has over the years grown into strengths so much so that it continues to make substantial contributions towards society in educating and producing some of the finest writers, artists and performers of the country.
