“The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.”
Manbhum Mahavidyalaya is one of the pioneer educational institutes in the southern part of the Purulia district of West Bengal, which is 53 K.M. from Purulia, the district Head Quarter, 330 K.M. from state capital Kolkata (erstwhile Calcutta) to inculcate value-based and principled education among the young population of a vast stretch of area. Nurturing students by a bunch of experienced, knowledge packed and energetic teachers is the strongest and the most valuable resource of Manbhum Mahavidyalaya. Manbhum Mahavidyalaya stated its journey in a definite direction on 22.07.1986, with subjects, viz. Commerce, English, History, Bengali, and Political Science. College’s objective is to provide an atmosphere for all round development of the students after a prolonged effort, in the year 2009 the College has succeeded to get an extension of affiliation for introduction of Post Graduation in Santhali. Now the affiliation of the College is being provided by the Sidho-Kanho-Birsha University from 2011 in place of Burdwan University. Recently with the assistance of UGC the College is able to provide modern teaching apparatus, internet, e-journal etc.
Our students are not always bogged in class lectures. Besides regular classes, we organize seminars & workshops for students in collaboration with UGC, NSS etc. on recent social problems, political issues, scientific and technological developments, environmental awareness etc.
A nation cannot stand keeping the head held high without discipline. Three of our teachers sacrifice their valuable time for building the sense of patriotism, nationalism and social bondage among the students through, organizing National Service Scheme (NSS).
The College caters to the students from all sections of our society, particularly socially and economically backward students are looked after with special care. The strong bondage among the teachers, students and employees of the college is our main source of inspiration for marching forward with definite goal and determination. I am sure our efforts will come out successful to have qualified human resources to take up the challenge to serve the nation positively in the very complex and demanding society of 21st century and days ahead. I hope the website of the College will help the viewers to get a clear insight of the College.
Thanks to all,Prof. Asutosh Biswas
