GENESIS

In 1984 a group of dedicated and like-minded visionaries headed by Shri.R.L.Jalappa, Champion of Co-operative movement in the state of Karnataka established Sri Devaraj Urs Educational Trust for Backward Classes to focus on Medical Education and Social Service.

The trust started at Sri Devaraj Urs Medical College, Tamaka, Kolar in the year 1986. Through this college, the trust sought to make a significant contribution to Medical Education, Research, and Health Care to the Rural population. The College is situated in Tamaka village (abutting National Highway No.4), 5 K.M. from Kolar Town, Karnataka. Kolar is well connected by road, rail, and air due to its proximity to Bengaluru, which is 75 K.M away. The nearest Railway Junction, Bangarpet is 15 K.M away from Kolar.

The trust in its stride for the attainment of quality in education and health care services to its stakeholders have obtained Accreditation by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC, INDIA) and certification by ISO 9001-2000 in the year 2006 for its Medical College. Sri Devaraj Urs Medical College is one of the few colleges in India to have achieved this remarkable feat.

This inspired The Trust to apply for Deemed University status for this college in the name and style of Sri Devaraj Urs Academy of Higher Education and Research, comprising Sri Devaraj Urs Medical College. The University Grants Commission of India conducted an inspection in April 2007 and after being satisfied with the infrastructure and teaching facilities, recommended to the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India to confer Deemed to be University status to this Medical College. Accordingly, the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India conferred deemed to be university status to the Medical College on 25th May 2007.

Currently, the deemed university comprises only the medical college. Steps are in progress for the inclusion of R.L.Jalappa Institute of Technology, Kodigehally, Doddaballapura (off campus), and Sri Devaraj Urs College of Nursing, Kolar (on-campus) under the ambit of the deemed to be the university. Since its inception in 2007, the University has added on several academic and administrative departments befitting to its functioning.
