The university of Kerala which has celebrated its Diamond Jubilee during the period of 1997’98 has been the centre of all higher education activities in Keralam since the very origin of the State. Its history can be traced back to the pre-independence period and the Royal Proclamation issued by the late Sri. Chithira Thirunal Balarama Varma, the Maharaja of Travancore on 1 November, 1937. That Proclamation caused the establishment of the University of Travancore. It was third among the universities of Princely States and sixteenth in the whole country. And the University of Travancore eventually evolved into the University of Kerala after the formation of the State of Keralam on 1 November, 1956. “Karmani Vyajyate Prajna” ,a verse from “Panchatantra”is the motto of this university. True Knowledge Manifests itself in action’ is the core meaning of the motto and the University can proudly claim that it has been striving to fulfill this goal from the time of its formation. The University of Kerala has 16 Faculties and 40 Teaching Departments under these faculties.
