A Short History of the College

Azad Hind Fouz Smriti Mahavidyalaya, affiliated to the University of Calcutta, started its journey on 8th October 1986. Its location is ideal for an educational institution. It is far enough from the hub of overpopulated areas and yet easily accessible by bus and rail. As the college is located beside the Howrah-amta road, the facility of regular bus service can be availed of to reach the college. Hence students from the adjoining region of Howrah district as a well as from the neighbouring Hooghly and even Midnapore, come here for higher education.

At present the College imparts Honours Courses in English, Bengali, Geography, History and Education and General Courses in English, Bengali, Sanskrit, Education, Philosophy, Geography, Economics, Mathematics, History, Political Science and B. Com. The College is committed to provide quality education at the undergraduate level to the students irrespective of caste, creed, religious and gender. The mission of the College is to enable the students to live fruitful lives and make meaningful contributions to the community.

From the humble beginning of the College has, during the last two decades, made a slow but steady progress. The College, like many other undergraduate Colleges all over India, is aware of the necessity to get itself assessed by the expert team of National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), an autonomous institution under the university Grant Commission. For us NAAC is a guardian of quality in Higher Education and its assessment provides the occasion to assess our own strengths and weaknesses and also integrates the three wings of the college –teachers, students and non teaching employees and is likely to bring them close together to achieve the common objective of excellence.

The management of the College, under the present set up is vested in the Teachers –in-Charge who is consultation with and on the advice of the governing Body is formed as per provisions of Clause 93 of Calcutta University First Statutes, 1979 and its subsequent amendments .As the apex body it regulates all endeavours of the College.
