Message From The Principal
Gour Mahavidyalaya, situated on the left bank of Mahananda river where N.H.34 passes through Mangalbari, Old Malda, started its journey in the year 1985 (5.11.1985) to cater to the needs of the pupil, mainly of the locality, as well as those of this district and of entire North Bengal, in the field of higher education. Gour Mahavidyalaya, a premier institution for higher education of Old Malda constituency, has been trying continuously to free people from ignorance, superstition and many wrong ideas on the one hand and empower the students to earn a decent living on the other. The college, which started with Humanities and Social Scinces, had only 35 students at the initial stage. As the days rolled on, the number of students increased and the college morphed into a leading academic insti- tute of the district. The college is affiliated to the University of Gour Banga and it was recognised as per UGC 2f and 12b in the year 1992. The college has only day shift operating from 10.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. Now, with Honours in 18 subjects in Arts & Science, Pass course in Physical Education, self-financed course in BCA, the college boasts of satifying the needs of more than six thousand students today. We are glad to inform that the college recently completed the second cycle of NAAC securing B+ (the higest rank in Malda district) and we resolve to carry forward the momentum for further development of the college.
