The first chapter of the Sri Lankan University genealogy was chronicled a century ago; on the 21st January 1921, when Ceylon University College, an affiliate of the University of London began the history of Sri Lankan universities to be penned. Today, on 21st January 2021, University of Colombo will mark the 100th milestone of pioneering liberal arts and basic sciences in the field of modern higher education.
Colombo Beacon brings best wishes for the Faculties of Science and Arts, that celebrate their centenary today, and for the main library of the University of Colombo, that enriches thousands of flowers of wisdom.
This is Colombo Beacon’s tour of unfolding the centenary chapters of University of Colombo.
Project Coordinators: Ranmuni De Zoysa , Amodha Sachiko and Poornima Dissanayake
We have reached a significant milestone in a long expedition that set into motion many years ago. Many generations have come and gone, bearing uncountable and indelible memories and will continue to do so in the centuries yet to come.
