It is a dream realized. The Hon’ble Chief Minister Smt Mamata Bandyopadhyay and the Hon’ble Education Minister gave a concrete shape to the long-cherished dream of the people of  Bankura by establishing Bankura University, thereby giving a new intellectual impetus to this peripherally located region of West Bengal.

 Bankura University was established by the West Bengal Act XIX of 2013 and the assent of the Governor was first published in the Kolkata Gazette, Extraordinary, of 6th January, 2014.

 Bankura University is committed to the dedicated task of disseminating higher learning  in this region and it promises to move into a glorious future by promoting the study of indigenous folk and cultural tradition as also by a sustainable rural and tribal development.

Bankura, historically known as Mallabhum, can truly boast of a rich heritage of traditional cultural excellence. It is evident in its traditional Dokra art, the intellectual and artistic triumphs of the 18th-century mathematician Subhankar (the well-known Subhankari Arya), the temple town of Bishnupur and the artistic contributions of Jamini Roy and Ramkinkar Bej.

This university will sustain and strengthen a unique dissemination of knowledge systems in language, literature, cultural studies, social sciences and multiple branches of the study of science.

This university promises to cater to the long-cherished yearning for a centre of higher learning. Keeping in mind Cicero’s famous statement vivere est cogitare ( to live is to know ), this university is determined to spread the fruits of education in all segments of society –the mainstream and the marginal.

In the twenty-first century knowledge will cut across disciplines and boundaries; and the ‘regional’ will embrace the ‘global’. We have therefore devised three distinctive Schools of learning which will encourage research, learning and social commitment. We believe in the famous statement of Vivekananda: “Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man”. This valuable statement of Vivekananda will sustain us in our glorious voyage to the future.
