University Evening College, one of the four constituent colleges of University of Mysore, complete 50 years in July 2015. It is significant that the Golden Jubilee of the College coincided with the Centenary of the University of Mysore. The college which started with just a few students in 1965, has now nearly a thousand students on the rolls. The University Evening College was established with a vision to extend the yeomen service of Graduate Education to those who have not been able to pursue their higher studies due to compelled circumstances to earn their livelihood during day time Fifty Five years ago, the college set out certain goals of imparting education to all, disseminating knowledge and promotion of skills. Faithfully so, the College community has not only fulfilled these goals, but has taken it up as a responsibility to promote these ideas in future too.

Our students have always successfully imbibed in them a unique spirit of community, secular ideologies, and a sense of democratic and institutional responsibility and above all the celebration of diversity. The College has indeed helped all its students maintain a balance between excellence and social responsibility. Many well known academics, civil servants, social workers, artists, film makers, authors, educationists and lawyers comprise our alumna hall of fame. During the Golden Jubilee year, we hope to bring all of them back to share with the current students their experiences and memories.

Many Principals in the last four decades have shouldered the responsibility towards this endeavor of the institution and contributed their might in serving the needy to fulfill their respective educational motto. With limited availability of resources, the institution shows its commitment towards the students in pursuing their education in the field of Arts, Commerce and Management faculties. Today, the Evening College is one of the Leading Colleges in Mysore by catering to the educational needs of all and sundry.

Though, initially, the college started with B.A. graduation courses, B.Com. B.B.A., and Computer Education as well as Post - Graduate Courses were added. Today, the College is drawing students from across the state and even from other parts of the country as well. During the Academic year 2014-15, the college began a Master’s Programme in History and in Post-graduation course in Commerce (M.Com.) was also started these two additions are indeed feather in the cap of the institution! The college lives up to the expectations of the University and the students amidst ever changing needs of the society in the field of education.
