It is said with the truth that the function of a University is to prepare the young to take their place of human society; it must provide its members with the knowledge and skill necessary to make them efficient citizens. But is the whole duty of a man exhausted by the acquisition of knowledge and professional training. Is a university only an institution for higher learning, a factory which turns out clerks and technicians able turn the machinery of the state? Mere knowledge which gratifies curiosity is different from culture which refines personality. Culture is not remembering a mass of serious details about the dates of birth of the great heroes of the world or interesting names of the fastest ships which across the Atlantic or entertaining adds and ends gathered from the latest who's who. A well known institution of this country has for its motto as viddya ya vimuktaya; that is knowledge which is designed for salvation, for the development of the soul is the best.
Such an ideal is not merely an Indian idiosyncrasy. Plato said long ago that the culture of soul is "the first and fairest thing that the best of men can ever have." According to Goethe, the object of education is to form tastes and not simply to communicate knowledge. A man's culture is not to be judged by the amount of tabulated information which he has at his command, but by the quality of the mind which he brings to bear on the facts of life. Education is not cramming the mind with a host of technical details of putting sight as it were into blind eyes. The eye of the soul is never blind, only its gaze may be turned to the false and the fleeting. Too often the vision may be dragged towards by the "leaden weights" but remove them and liberate the soul from the encumbrance so that it may follow its native impulse to soar upwards. The student at a university does not merely learn something, but becomes something by being exposed, in the most elastic period of his life, to transforming influences, such as the constant clash of mind with mind, the interchange of ideas, the testing of opinions and the growth of knowledge of human nature.
The function of a university is
1. to enable the young to gather facts about the world
2. to learn to do his job
3. to enable him to learn his livelihood
4. to prepare the young to take their place in society
5. none of the above
