Profile of Lucknow UniversityThe idea of starting a University at Lucknow was first mooted by Raja Sir Mohammad Ali Mohammad Khan, Khan Bahadur, KCIE of Mahmudabad, who contributed an article to the columns of "The Pioneer urging the foundation of a University at Lucknow. A little later Sir Harcourt Butler, KCSI, KCIE was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of the United Provinces. His well-known interest in all matters under his jurisdiction, specially in matters of education, gave fresh life and vigour to the proposal. The first step to bring the University into being was taken when a General Committee of educationists and persons interested in university education appointed for the purpose, met in conference at Government House, Lucknow, on November 10, 1919. At this meeting Sir Harcourt Butler, who was in the chair, outlined the proposed scheme for the new university.
A discussion followed, and it was resolved that Lucknow University should be a Unitary, Teaching, and Residential University of the kind recommended by the Calcutta University Mission 1919 and should consist of Faculties of Arts, including Oriental Studies, Science, Medicine, Law, etc. A number of other resolutions was also passed and six sub-committees were formed, five of them to consider questions connected with the University and one to consider the arrangements for providing Intermediate Education. These sub-committees met during the months of November and December, 1919 and January, 1920 and the reports of their meetings were laid before a second Conference of the General Committee at Lucknow on January 26, 1920. Their proceedings were considered and discussed and the reports of five of the sub-committees were, subject to certain amendments, confirmed. The question of incorporation of the Medical College in the University, however, was for the time being left open for expression of opinion. At the close of the Conference donations of one lakh each from the Raja of Mahmudabad and Jahangirabad were announced.
The resolutions of the first Conference together with the recommendations of the sub-committees as confirmed at the second Conference were laid before a meeting of the Allahabad University on March 12, 1920, and it was decided to appoint a sub-committee to consider them and report to the Senate. The report of the sub-committee was considered at an extraordinary meeting of the Senate on August 7, 1920, at which the Chancellor presided, and the scheme was generally approved. In the meantime the difficulty of incorporating the Medical College in the University had been removed. During the month of April 1920, Mr CF de la Fosse, the then Director of Public Instruction, United Provinces, drew up a Draft Bill for the establishment of the Lucknow University which was introduced in the Legislative Council on August 12, 1920. It was then referred to a Select Committee which suggested a number of amendments, the most important being the liberalising of the constitution of the various University bodies and the inclusion of a Faculty of Commerce; this Bill, in an amended form, was passed by the Council on October 8, 1920. The Lucknow University Act, No. V of 1920, received the assent of the Lieutenant-Governor on November 1, and of the Governor-General on November 25, 1920.
The Court of the University was constituted in March, 1921, and the first meeting of the Court was held on March 21, 1921, at which the Chancellor presided. The other University authorities such as the Executive Council, the Academic Council, and Faculties came into existence in August and September, 1921. Other Committees and Boards, both statutory and otherwise, were constituted in course of time. On July 17, 1921, the University undertook teaching -- both formal and informal. Teaching in the Faculties of Arts, Science, Commerce, and Law was being done in the Canning College and teaching in the Faculty of Medicine in the King Georges Medical College and Hospital. The Canning College was handed over to the University on July 1, 1922, although previous to this date the buildings, equipment, staff, etc., belonging to the Canning College had been ungrudgingly placed at the disposal of the University for the purposes of teaching and residence. The King Georges Medical College and the King Georges Hospital were transferred by the Government to the University on the March 1, 1921.
The following three Colleges provided the nucleus for the establishment of the University:
The King Georges Medical College. (Now Known as King Georges Medical University)
The Canning College.
The Isabella Thoburn College.
This was a rich inheritance for the new-born University in 1920, both materially and intellectually, and it brought with it also the richest of all heritages "a fine tradition of some fifty-five years in the case of the Canning College and some nine years in the case of the King Georges Medical College." To this the generous taluqdars of Oudh added an endowment of nearly thirty lakhs. The support from Sir Harcourt Butlers Government was strong and hearty. Since then the Government of the United Provinces has annually contributed a substantial share towards the maintenance of the University.
The Central Library of the university known as the Tagore Library is one of the richest libraries in the country. It has 5.25 lakh books, 50,000 journals and approximately 10,000 copies of approved Ph.D. and D.Litt. dissertations. This library is computerized and has its own web site. It is equipped with the facilities of lending books, inter-library loan, reference services and photocopying. The total staff strength of the library is 80 which includes the administrative, professional, semiprofessional andministerial staff. Prof. Aqil Ahmad, Department of Statistics is the present Honorary Librarian and Dr. Jyoti Mishra, the Deputy Librarian.
The University also has a Cooperative Lending Library, in addition to the individual departmental libraries. Keeping in view the growing need for education and professionalism the University has recognized 48 associated colleges for the teaching of undergraduate courses. Some of these colleges have also been permitted to undertake postgraduate teaching in various subjects. For a healthy relationship among the teachers, students and non-teaching staff, the University has created three independent bodies - Lucknow University Teachers Association, Lucknow University Students Union and Lucknow University Karmachari Parishad. Prof. D. P. Tiwari and Dr. Pushpendra Mishra are the respective President and General Secretary of the Teachers Association.
Activities and Achievements
The Students Union, during the current academic session has engaged itself in many constructive activities. It has organized a few national seminars on relevant issues, worked in the direction of improving the living conditions of the students on the campus and in the hostels. It has also undertaken tree plantation and blood donation camps. The University has an efficient Proctorial Board headed by Dr. A. N. Singh of the Department of Social Work to maintain law and order on the campus.
The University also provides residential facilities to teachers, students and non-teaching staff. There are over all 13 hostels for boys and girls in the University. Kailash Hall and the New Management Girls Hostel can house nearly 600 girl students. Extra-curricular and employment needs of the students are taken care of by various centres and associations, such as, Delegacies, Athletic Association, Centre for Cultural Activities, Information and Employment Bureau and Centre for Information, Publication and Public Relations. An important feature of the University is the organisation of regular National Service Scheme programmes to create awareness for social service amongst the students. The University also imparts military training to the students through its NCC Wing The cadets of the Army. and Naval Wings contribute effectively to society by participating in activities like election duties, facilitating traffic control, blood donation, tree plantation, etc.
Extention of University Campus
During the past two decades there has been an extension of the University Campus. This is borne out by the fact that a huge and majestic building, as part of the New Campus, has been constructed on 75 acres of land provided by the State Government on Sitapur Road near Engineering College. The New Campus at present is being used for the teaching of management and law courses. It also has a hostel for boys almost ready for use. The University of Lucknow in terms of its excellence in academic and extra-curricular fields has acquired a prestigious place among the leading universities of the country. Despite general criticism with regard to the falling standards of higher education it will not be an exaggeration to assert that this University, even to date, maintains its dignity and quality of education.

TAGORE LIBRARY: A BRIEF PROFILE
Tagore Library is the Central Research library of the University of Lucknow. It is here that the academic fraternity- both the preceptor and his pupils could find intellectual food. It is respected as one of the oldest, well organised and richest libraries of India. With the advent of Information Technology, this library is also changing its traditional format.
The maintenance of a good library is a sin qua non for any progressive university, therefore, the then Canning College Library was converted into tile University Central Library and thus the Tagore Library, tile Central Library of the University of Lucknow, came into existence with the Ute establishment of the Lucknow University, late in the year 1920.
Initially Tagore Library was located in the old Bennet Hall and rooms between the verandah on the South-Western side of main Canning College building (now Faculty of Arts, main building). In 1924, the Library building was expanded with the inclusion of a separate Reading Room.
The plan of the new building for the library was prepared by one Mr. Griffin, a noted architect and was explained in detail to the members of the Library Committee on December 10, 1935. The model for the two storied building was placed in the old library for the students and staff to make any suggestions for improvement or Innovation In the plan. However, there was inordinate delay in approving the plan, which had sailed in rough weather for some time. The main architect Mr. Griffin died in the meantime.
Foundation stone of the new building (present building) waslaid by tl1e then Chancellor In March 1937, but the start of construction work took quite some time. After the death of main architect Mr.Griffin, one Mr. Narwekar was assigned the responsibility for the architectural portion and supervision of the work on payment of a sum of Rs. 2000/-. A sum of Rs. 1,50,000/- had been set apart for its construction by the University. It took a couple of year in completion of the building.
The thought of opening a University at Lucknow was first mooted by Raja Sir Mohammad Ali Mohammad Khan, Khan Bahadur. The first step to bring the University into being was taken when a General Committee of educationists and persons interested in university education appointed for the purpose, met in conference at Government House, Lucknow in 1919. At this meeting Sir Harcourt Butler, who was in the chair, outlined the proposed scheme for the new university. University of Lucknow was born in 1920.
The University of Lucknow is a university in the city of Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India. It is affiliated to University Grants Commission; Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU); Association of Indian Universities (AIU); Distance Education Council (DEC). Other accreditations include National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC); National Council of Teacher Education (NCTE); Bar Council of India (BCI). It was affiliated to UGC in the year 1921. Most of the courses have an 'Yearly' system, although some of the new courses, like BBA (Bachelor in Business Administration) and MBA have opted for a Semester system.
The University of Lucknow grew out of the prestigious Canning College, Lucknow, founded in 1867 by Raja Dakshinaranjan Mukherjee, also grew out of King George's Medical College and Isabella Thoburn College. Lucknow University was set up as a result of the far-reaching recommendations of the Sadler Commission which had been set up originally in 1917 to just investigate the "'conditions and prospects of the University of Calcutta".
The Honorable Raja Sir Muhammad Ali Mohammad Khan of Mahmudabad made a strong plea in the Pioneer for the creation of a separate University at Lucknow which was reinforced by all the Taluqdars of Awadh. Sir Harcourt Butler, the then Lt. Governor of United Provinces also gave active support to the idea. Lucknow University was established in law by the Governor General on November 25, 1920. Sir Harcourt Butler laid the foundation stone of the University on March 19, 1921, and Dr. Gyanendra Nath Chakravarti became its first vice-chancellor. On July 17, 1921 teaching classes commenced.
We welcome the members of Lucknow University and its extended family of all associated colleges. This felt need for having an emotional boundary with all those who have walked the same corridors, sat in the same classes and dreamt of the same colorful future was felt so strongly by group of alumnus from the university that the website became inevitable. This is wholly private and absolutely free of cost effort for reaching out globally to all those who have warm feeling for their Alma mater. We would like to clarify at this stage that this website is just a facilitating medium and not an official website of the university or any alumnus society of the university.
