Emergence of the Department
Mangalore University has introduced a new and very significant wing since 2016. It is the “Department of Studies in Education”. This department has been initiated after 35 years of the commencement of Mangalore University, and this dream of the people of Mangaluru was realized because of the pioneering spirit of the former Vice ChancellorDr. (Mr.) K. Byrappa. Being an academic and highly professional, he toiled to bring to light this department, facing innumerable challenges. As a result of his efforts, the Department of Education has come into existence with the full potential. The Department ensures promising results in every year. The present Vice-Chancellor Prof. P. Subrahmanya Yadapadithaya has a crucial role both in the emergence and development of the Department of Education and leading the department with a great zeal to take it to heights.
