It is my great honour and privilege to welcome you to Saheed Anurup Chandra Mahavidyalaya a renowned institution of higher education of South 24 Parganas district of West Bengal, affiliated to the University of Calcutta. Saheed Anurup Chandra Mahavidyalaya is an under-graduate degree college, which was established in 1991, in the memory of the distinguished revolutionary leader of India’s freedom movement, Sri Anurup Chandra Sen, who had spent a short, but very productive and significant phase of his life in the village of Burul, where the college is located. The college was established by his students and members of the local community, who wanted to bring the opportunity of higher education to this rural community. Living the vision of Sri Sen, who believed that empowerment of the youth through value-based holistic education ignited their hearts and minds, the College has strived to provide a student friendly, affordable, curriculum-based education and co-curricular opportunities to all its pupil. For the past three decades, the institution has persistently worked towards its goal of spreading higher education to the socially and economically marginalised young minds of rural Bengal, encouraging them to participate in various academic and allied pursuits, to keep pace with the rapid social and academic changes congruous with the times. The college aims to empower its students to cope with the myriad challenges of modern society and encourages them to become mature and responsible citizens of the future.
I assure you that your years in Saheed Anurup Chandra Mahavidyalaya, will nurture you to academic excellence and open your hearts and minds in pursuit of true knowledge, which does not end with earning of a university degree. I hope, that at the end of your journey with us you will realise that “the highest education is that which does not merely give us information but marks our life in harmony with all existence” (Rabindranath Tagore)
Best Wishes for an enriching and productive college life.
