Glorious though it is, the University of Calcutta is not simply a prisoner of its past. Instead of basking in the reflected glory of its early achievements, it is always surging ahead, breaking new grounds and setting high standards. This is amply testified by the conferring of the coveted ‘Five Star’ status by NAAC in 2001, followed by other recognitions from India and abroad. The latest achievement is its recognition as the ‘Centre of Excellence’ by the University Grants Commission. These are indeed fitting tributes to the ceaseless quest for excellence by the University of Calcutta.
