Visva-Bharati was founded by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore in 1921 making it the oldest Central University in the country. In May 1951, Visva-Bharati was declared to be a Central University. And ‘an Institution of National Importance’ by an Act of Parliament. The University followed the pedagogy devised by Gurudev Tagore. Though gradually it evolved in the format in which modern Universities developed elsewhere.
