Forman Christian College University was founded by Dr. Charles Forman in 1864. It started off as the Rang Mahal School, Lahore and soon became the Forman Christian College. For many years, it was a leading institute and was known as a ‘gentleman’s college’. It was a pioneer in many educational achievements in the region. It was the first institute in the subcontinent to offer co-education in 1902, which was a big step in gender equality in education. FCCU has always produced notable scholars, intellectuals, and politicians such as Khan Bahadur and Pervez Musharraf. It gained university status in 2005 and has upheld its legacy of quality education and grooming. Over the years, Forman Christian College University has expanded rapidly and keeps embarking on new endeavors.
