History of the College
Vivekananda Mission Mahavidyalaya has an illustrious history of continuous development since its inception. Established on 9th August, 1968, at present, the college has emerged as a distinguished educational institution in the district of Purba Medinipur in the state of West Bengal.
Realizing the difficulties of the sons and daughters of the soil to receive higher education in distant institutions, an urge was felt by the monks, brahmacharies and philanthropists of the Vivekananda Mission Ashram to set up a college in the serene atmosphere of the rural area, away from the din and bustle of the city life. The idea was to provide value based quality education to all sections of society especially to people belonging to backward communities. The thinking finally materialized in the establishment of the Mission Mahavidyalaya in 1968.
In the beginning, classes of the Mahavidyalaya were held at two neighbouring institutions set up by the Vivekananda Mission Ashram namely Rampur Vivekananda Mission Vidyamandir and Bajitpur Saradamani Balika Vidyalaya. However, in the year 1970 classes and the office shifted to its own building.
Initially commenced with the stream of Humanities ,the college gradually opened Commerce and Science Stream. From the undergraduate to postgraduate course – the Mahavidyalaya has been on the continuous process to add new feathers in its crown. It is also a matter of great pride for the college to be associated with prestigious Netaji Subhas Open University since July ,2017 to serve the students in a greater scale.
The uncompromising approach to the standard of education as well as the cordial relation between the faculty and its pupils has made this college trustworthy and endearing to the ardent lovers of education.
One more reason for its increasing popularity is its convenience in transportation system. The college is situated at Viveknagar which is well connected with the railway, waterway and roadway. Barada Railway Station on the Haldia – Panskura route, Kukrahati jetty connected with Diamond Harbour and Raichak jetty ghat and above all, Chaitanyapur bus stop – all the nearby options are available from this college.
