It is located in Kolkata, West Bengal and comprises two campuses - the main campus at Jadavpur and the new campus at Salt Lake.

The University Grants Commission has identified JU as one of the first five universities in the country with "Potential for Excellence".[1] In addition, Jadavpur University has been accorded the highest grading and rated as a "Five Star University" in India by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council.[citation needed] JU was also nominated as the lead institution for TEQIP, a World Bank funded program in India.[citation needed]



The National Council of Education (NCE) was set up in 1906 to impart literary, scientific and technical education on a national basis. The year was significant in Bengal's history as the province had just been partitioned by Lord Curzon, the Governor-General of India, into East Bengal on the one hand (the area that was eventually to become Bangladesh in 1971) and West Bengal and Orissa on the other. In 1906, a group of Bengali intellectuals including Rabindranath Tagore, Aurobindo Ghosh, Raja Subodh Chandra Mullick and Brajendra Kishore Roychowdhury decided that they would protest the partition of Bengal by setting up an institution that would challenge British rule by offering education to the masses 'on national lines and under national control'. The NCE was set up with Rashbihari Ghosh as its first president.
