The Visva-Bharati University will soon get the ‘heritage’ tag from UNESCO to take the distinction of world’s first living heritage university. The university was founded by Rabindranath Tagore in 1921. Rabindranath also donated some of his property, including land and a bungalow, to the society.
“The university is going to be declared a heritage university… it will be world’s first heritage university,” according to Visva-Bharati University Vice-Chancellor Bidyut Chakraborty. He further added, “Everything has been done except the formal meeting that will take place either in April or May. Normally heritage tag is given to a dead monument. For the first time in the world, a living university which is functioning is going to get the heritage tag from UNESCO.”
Chakraborty also mentioned, “There is no other university in the world where cultural experiments were done continuously.”
