The College

Shyampur Siddheswari Mahavidyalaya

The college was founded way back in 1964 in Shyampur village of Howrah district some 75 kms away from Kolkata in the close vicinity of Gadiara – a well known tourist spot of southern West Bengal.

Late Murari Mohan Manna - the visionary pathfinder – being identified with the common man’s right to enlightenment and appreciating the necessity of spreading the lights of education to the thousands of under-privileged family for their empowerment, founded the college with whatever resources he was endowed with.

The genesis of the college was modest, as it offered general stream courses in humanities; science and commerce, but consolidating on the foundation of vision for growth, the curriculum bouquet soon started enriching itself to impart honours curriculum in many of the subjects and today the college has 21 departments of which 13 departments impart honours curriculum.

The college being the only one of its kind within the radial periphery of 25 kms, has delivered the need for higher education to a vast section of the under-privileged society for the last four and half decades, through the unquestioned commitment of teachers and the members of non-teaching staff.
