Diamond Harbour Women’s University came into existence in 2013. It was established under West Bengal Act XXXVII of 2012 on 28th January 2013. It is the first University in this region and has been envisaged in answer to the long standing requirement of the girl-student of this region and beyond for greater scope in the search for attainment of selfhood.
This is a region with strong links to the metropolis Kolkata. It is well connected by road and rail and is the gateway to the Sunderbans, an eco-region of recognized significance. It marks the confluence of the mighty river Hooghly (a tributary of the Ganga) with the Bay of Bengal. In January the Gangasagar Mela attracts thousands of pilgrims across the country. The region remains rural, though fishery is an important economic activity, increasingly acquiring industrial dimensions. In recent years, migration, both short and long term has become an important demographic feature of the region.
The mission of this University is to contribute to economic, social, intellectual and cultural development of the country through the development and upliftment of the girl student. Teaching and training programs will be carefully tuned to enable students to overcome their weakness, to expand their knowledge, improve their skills, develop necessary perspective and enable them to perform to their fullest potential so as to cope with the present and future needs of the world. It is the vision of this University to encourage young women to aspire towards their own fulfillment and empowerment. Let each one of us associated with this University do our best with honesty & sincerity for the fulfillment of this vision
