AbhedanandaMahavidyalaya, one of the premier institutions of Birbhum district of West Bengal was established in the year 1965 by the holy hands of Thakur Sri SatyanandaDev, the spiritual disciple of Swami Abhedananda on the occasion of the birth centenary of the latter. Several eminent personalities and industrialists of the locality gave land to the Ramakrishna Ashram which donated the land for construction of the college. When the institution started its journey, it had a spiritual setup with the academics and administration managed by sanyasis and brahmacharis headed by the founder Principal Dr. K. D. Roy (Swami Krishnananda), an eminent Professor of Physics himself. The building was constructed by the shramdan of the staff and students of the college. Gradually, due to the efforts of the staff and benevolent funds from the UGC and State Govt. the college pupated into its present form opening the higher education avenue to hundreds of students, most of whom came from economically and socially backward class of people and minorities. Presently, the college offers Honours and General degrees in sixteen different disciplines with a flexible combination of subjects in Science, Commerce and Humanities streams. The college has celebrated its Golden Jubilee in 2015 through various programmes and initiatives. Since its establishment the institution has been imparting sound and quality higher education to the students of the locality as well as of the adjacent areas. The college puts special emphasis on the necessity of taking extra care for the educations of the students belonging to the deprived and underprivileged families to make the higher education system equal and all-inclusive. Many of the students who passed out of the college are now established in different walks of life, and quite a number of them have made their mark on various fields such as education, medicine, engineering, law, politics & legislation, public administration, journalism, arts, literature and games & sports. The college derives deep satisfaction from the multi-faceted achievements of its former students and strives for maintaining the excellence it has attained over the years which, needless to say, is a difficult and never-ending endeavour. And the journey continues…
