Principal's Message :


Surya Sen Mahavidyalaya (SSM) is a co-educational college located in Siliguri. Established on September 15, 1998, the college offers undergraduate courses in all three streams: Arts, Science, and Commerce. It is one of the first five prime co-education colleges of Siliguri. The college has been affiliated with North Bengal University since 1998, and it is recognized by UGC under 2(f) and 12(b). Additionally, it is an ISO 9001:2015 certified and ISO 21001: 2018 and NAAC Accredited institution. The college is celebrating its Silver Jubilee Year this year.

In this Silver Jubilee Year, the SSM fraternity remembers the philanthropists of Siliguri whose effort during 1998 gave birth to this Mahavidyalaya. Among them, the first name that comes to our mind is the Late Bikash Ghosh, the then Mayor of Siliguri Municipal Corporation and the first President of our Governing Body (15/09/1998 to 27/12/2001). His endeavor continued with the Second President of the G.B., Late Swapan Kumar Sarkar, whose vision was realized after establishing the institution in its own campus at Surya Sen Colony. On September 15, 1998, Siliguri College began its morning shift with the Late (Dr) Janhabi Bhusan Bose as the in-charge Principal. The Organising Committee held its first meeting on September 25, 1998, which was graced by Sri Ashoke Bhattacharya, the then Hon'ble MiC, Municipal Affairs and Urban Development, Govt. of West Bengal.

The SSM fraternity expresses its heartfelt gratitude to T.C. Mittal Memorial Trust for their unconditional support, providing financial assistance for constructing its present Academic and Administrative Block, named T.C. Mittal Memorial Block, the first Academic building of the institution. During this 25 years of journey, we are indebted to Sri Gautam Deb, the then Hon'ble MiC, NBDD and Tourism; Sri Ajit Agarwala, Trustee, Amit Agrawala Trust; Late Krishna Chandra Paul, Ex-President G.B. ( 02/07/2016 to 18/09/2019); Sri Satya Narayan Garg & Smt. Bimla Devi Garg is one among others. The SSM fraternity is obliged to P.C. Chandra Group for extending their financial support since 2019 to the institution for books, infrastructural development and provision of drinking water for the students under their CSR fund. We are also grateful to Union Bank of India, Deshbandhupara Branch, Bandhan Bank, S.F Road Branch and Axis Bank, Siliguri Branch, for their CSR Support for providing drinking water facilities for the staff and students.

Further, in co-curricular activities, our NSS Volunteers and NCC Cadets have actively participated in different social outreach programmes organized by the state government. This year, NSS Unit II is awarded by the H.E, President of India as one of the Best NSS Unit of the Country ; two of our NSS Volunteers, Ms. Priyanka Roy & Ms. Subharthi Das, NSS Unit-II, were awarded Best Volunteers by the WB Higher Education Department; 1 NCC Cadet, Sri Abhimanyu Singh has represented at the RDC Parade 2023 at New Delhi & also selected to represent India for International Cultural Exchange Programme in Nepal and 7 cadets are selected for the TSC. Similarly, four students have received awards/scholarships from the Sports Board, University of North Bengal.

This year as per the directive of Higher Education department, Govt of West Bengal, the college has started Four Year UG Programme under NEP 2020 as per the structure approved by the University of North Bengal. We feel proud to provide quality education by equipping our students with skills, confidence and a positive approach for all-round development. The college is relentlessly striving to perceive and maintain academic excellence while encouraging the students to participate in various co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. There prevails an amicable environment at the college that nurtures students' creativity, passion, resilience and leadership qualities to develop versatile personalities. We have also completed the library automation process and the initiation of the Institutional Repository. A high-tech Language Laboratory to develop the communication skills of the students under the aegis of the Department of English is made operational. All the departments have digital classrooms for the online teaching-learning process.

Faculties are engaged in various academic developmental activities like publications in Journals attending and presenting papers in different Regional, National and International webinars and seminars. The Research and Development Cell has taken a keen interest in developing the Academic Skills of the faculties by organizing different skill development programmes through Faculty Development Programmes. The Cell has published Two edited Books this year. We are indebted to our G.B. for sanctioning Rs.40,000/-.

For me, as a Principal, the progress of an institute depends mainly on the performance of the students in academic, sports and cultural activities, along with maintaining high values and ethics. The management highly supports the overall development of students, staff and faculty. We are equally committed to producing quality graduates at a competitive level in line with international educational philosophy who can bring meaningful changes to the mundane system. This aligns with our nation's aspiration to build a generation of professionals capable of addressing the challenges of a new world order.

Further, we have planned for the NAAC visit for 2nd Cycle of Accreditation during the 1st half of 2024.

I congratulate all the stakeholders on this day and hope for more institutional development in the coming years.
