Chiang Mai Rajabhat University is a university in the north of Thailand. It is under the Royal Thai Ministry of Education. The university was founded in 1924 as an agricultural teacher training college. In 1948, it became Chiang Mai Teachers College and offered majors in a variety of subjects. On February 14, 1982, the year of King Rama IX's sixtieth birthday, His Majesty proclaimed Thailand's 36 teacher's colleges to be Rajabhat Institutes; they then began offering majors and degree programmes in non-teaching fields. On March 6, 1985, His Majesty the King graciously granted the use of his royal crest as the Rajabhat Institute emblem. Rajabhat Institute Chiang Mai became Chiang Mai Rajabhat University in 2004.
Enrolment is about 30,000, and classes are divided into regular, evening and weekends. Most students come from secondary schools in northern Thailand, some even from remote areas. Chiang Mai Rajabhat University is thus a community institute which provides a comprehensive education for local students and working people.
There are five faculties, one graduate school, one international college and one autonomous institute, employing about 500 faculty members.
There are four campuses:
- Wieng Boa, the main campus, is on Chang Puek Road, in the center of Chiang Mai.
- Mae Sa, the campus of Faculty of Management Science, is in Mae Rim District, 10 kilometers from Chiang Mai.
- Sa Luang (2,320 acres), campus of the Agricultural Center, is in Mae Rim District, 27 kilometers from Chiang Mai.
- Mae Hong Son campus, in Mae Hong Son, is the center for external services in education.

Famous quotes containing the words university and/or chiang:
“The university is no longer a quiet place to teach and do scholarly work at a measured pace and contemplate the universe. It is big, complex, demanding, competitive, bureaucratic, and chronically short of money.”
—Phyllis Dain (b. 1930)
“There is no shadow of protection to be had by sheltering behind the slender stockades of visionary speculation, or by hiding behind the wagon-wheels of pacific theories.”
—Madame Chiang Kai-Shek (b. 1898)
