History

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.
