About The College

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but rather the lighting of a fire”: W.B. Yeats

Nur Mohammad Smriti Mahavidyalaya, is the sole higher education centre of Samsherganj Block, in Dhuliyan, Murshidabad. There was a dire need of a college at Samsherganj, a highly populated area where students were deprived of higher education. Fortunately, the Nur family come forward to set up a college here, inspired bythe vision of Late Nur Mohammad Biswas.It was established in 2008 by Khalilur Rahman, the eldest son of Nur family and handed over to the Govt. of West Bengal. From the year 2008-2009 classes wereheld in a small building donated by the Nur family at Ratanpur. In the year of 2010 the college building permanently shifted beside NH 34 near Duckbanlow over 6.5 bigha land of Nur family who donatedthe entire front building. Since then Border Development Scheme and NTPC have donated two building. In 2019 a four storied building was handed over to the college by the Minority Development Programme, Govt of West Bengal. Now the college is moving from its infancy to childhood and facilities including adequate housing,

It is hoped that this college, harmonizing tradition and modernity, will emerge as a unique institution of higher studies. Quality higher education plays crucial role to progress and success among students as well as society.

The main aim for establishment of this college is to spread collegiate education among the girls, economically challenged and minority community students. We believe in Swami Vivekananda’s liberal idea that “Education is not mere accumulation of information but a life building, man-making, character- making assimilation of ideas”. Nur Mohammad Smriti Mahavidyalaya family are always aware about their responsibility to give proper shape of the young minds and to inculcate the sportsmanship like spirit to face and overcome real life challenges. The role of education is not just to provide the means to a job, a livelihood, but also to form a worldview, a perspective towards life.

We have the plan to introduce new science and other application oriented courses as per local students demand. Apart from opening new courses and upgrading existing ones, we have recently started organizing career counselling for the benefit of our students. Apart from that various co-curricular activities are organized on a regular basis, to bring out the talents of our students.

As a Principal of the college, I am committed towards this holistic approach to an all-round development of this college and to spread its flavor into the society.
