Ranchi University (RU[2]) is a public teaching-cum-affiliating university located in Ranchi, the capital city of Jharkhand, India. Established in 1960, the university now spans five districts of Jharkhand, namely, Ranchi, Gumla , Khunti, Simdega and Lohardaga.[citation needed] The current acting Vice-Chancellor of Ranchi University is R. K. Pandey.[3]

History[edit]

RU was established on 12 July 1960[4] and its first vice chancellor was Vishnudeo Narayan Singh.[3]

In 1992, university was bifurcated to create Vinoba Bhave University, reducing its area by nearly half for proper administration. In 2009 university was divided twice – in January to create Nilamber Pitamber University, at Medininagar, and in August 2009 to create Kolhan University,[5] at Chaibasa.[6]

Facilities[edit]

The university has a central library with approximately 150,000 books. There are a total of two male hostels and four female hostels in the university campus situated at Kutchery Road, Ranchi.

Administration[edit]

Like most state universities in India, the Chancellor of the university is the governor of the state - the Governor of Bihar until the inception of Jharkhand on 15 November 2000 and the Governor of Jharkhand since then. The chief executive of the university is the Vice-Chancellor.
