Public Petition dated 11.11.1839 initiated the establishment of Madras University. It was in January 1840 with Norton Mr.George as President, that the University Board was constituted. In 1854 after a lapse of 14 years Government of India formulated a systematic educational policy for India and as a sequel to this on September 5, 1857 by an Act of Indian Legislative Council, the University was founded. The University was organized in the model of London University.
Madras University is the mother of almost all the Old Universities of Southern India. The university area of jurisdiction was limited to three districts of Tamil Nadu in recent years. This is due to the establishment of various universities in the State and demarcation of the University territories. This University has been growing from strength to strength while expanding teaching and research.
