The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India accorded permission to the Ramakrishna Mission to start a deemed [to be] university (under University Grants Commission Act) named Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda Educational and Research Institute by a Gazette Notification dated 5 January 2005. Later, by another Notification of the UGC, the university was renamed as ‘'Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda Univeristy'. The formal inauguration of the university took place on 4 July 2005, Swami Vivekananda's Mahasamadhi day. The first convocation of the university was held on 2 September 2006 at its first Specialised Faculty Centre at Coimbatore.
Swami Vivekananda envisioned that Belur Math would be a centre of great harmony and synthesis, not only of all religious beliefs and traditions, but also of arts and sciences and the various branches of knowledge, both secular and spiritual. It would be the centre of great spiritual and cultural awakening.
Aims and Objectives - The Vision:
The present university is intended to actualize Swami Vivekananda's fundamental educational ideas of imparting life building, man-making and character-building education by combining the best elements of the East and the West. The aim of the institute is to provide opportunities for education and research in the disciplines of arts sciences and spiritual studies. Value education will therefore be an essential component in all the courses.
