Tumkur University, established in the year 2004, has gained significance as one of the young universities in the country and has been recognized as an institution of higher learning on par with high profile national institutions. It is a State University, established to cater to the educational needs of Tumakuru district where the majority of students hail from the rural background.

Since its inception, the University has been witnessing tremendous growth in the development of its academic profile and infrastructural facilities. Within a short span of thirteen years, the University has been successful in being recognized as an Institute of National Eminence by the UGC, besides being recognized under section 12 (B) of the UGC Act 1956 and also successfully gaining 'B' grade by the NAAC accreditation.

Recently, the university has been rated as a 'Three Star' institution under the Karnataka State Universities Rating Framework (KSURF) released by the Karnataka State Higher Education Council, Bengaluru. The evaluation was based on the criteria of Knowledge Production, Knowledge Transmission and Social Inclusiveness, besides taking into consideration the performance of the university in the domain of research, innovation, teaching, generating employment opportunities, providing basic amenities, inclusiveness and making social impact.

Seventeen Departments of Postgraduate Studies and Research in the faculties of Science and Technology, Arts, Commerce and Management; two Constituent Colleges, the University College of Arts and the University College of Science; and more than eighty-six affiliated Colleges constitute the universe of the Tumkur University.

Our students and faculty have been immensely benefited by their interaction with scientists like Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam and several other thinkers and educationists

Strategy:

A well defined strategy is a primary requirement to achieve the desired objective. The time has now come to realize that the image of a university as a temple of ivory tower of closed academic learning for limited number of students has become the part of history. No university can isolate itself from the changes that are taking place elsewhere. Keeping all these factors in the mind the university in its wisdom has adopted the following strategy to achieve its Vision and Mission statement.
