About Us

Brief History of the College
CHANDIDAS MAHAVIDYALAYA, a rural college, was set up in 04.01.1972 in a remote village KHUJUTIPARA under Bolpur Sub-division in the district of Birbhum of West Bengal. The objective behind establishing this college in the rural areas was to open up the opportunity of higher education before the first generation learners coming from economically and socially backward and minority families of the locality. But at the same time modern, scientific and value based education is necessary for the students and the society at large. So college judiciously blends the twin objectives- modern, secular & value education- into its vision.

Vision and Mission
Chandidas Mahavidyalaya is committed to impart value based and scientific education to its students, coming from economically and socially backward and minority families, situated in the rural areas, so that enlightened, integrated and prosperous society can be made. Chandidas Mahavidyalaya will ensure value based sustainable and qualitative education with a view to build self confidence among the students and inject energy and vigor to help them to learn, grow and evolve.

The College is affiliated to the University of Burdwan since 1972.

Our college is accredited B by the NAAC in November 2016.


Principal's Desk

Dr. Sk. Ataur Rahaman ( Teacher - in - Charge)

Welcome all to Chandidas Mahavidyalaya. It is an institution of academic excellence, established in 1972. It is amongst one of the remarkable NAAC accredited colleges (2nd cycle with B-Grade) within the University of Burdwan. At this College, we impart higher education to young generation both for male and female living in this rural part of West Bengal. We focus on discovering, developing and drawing out the hidden talents and accordingly our students are focused through an all round education so that they become multidimensional rather than uni-dimensional. We provide them value based education with modern teaching-learning methods with a view to produce a generation of well informed and emotionally sound. These are followed with the contribution of our highly qualified, dynamic and multi-talented faculty as well as active non teaching staff. We aim to evaluate our students on the basis of their physical, mental, social, emotional and intellectual development. I urge my students to concentrate on their cherished goals and strive hard to accomplish it. Also I urge all of my teachers to create appropriate, meaningful and participative learning situations. Also I do hope that all of other supporting staff will extend their valuable assistance whenever they will be asked for. I am optimistic that in times to come we will continue this journey with elevated enthusiasm and persistently provide a platform of holistic learning to the young generation of learners.
