Sidho Kanho Birsha University began as an academic institution of higher learning when it was created as a state university in 2010. Since then it has been a chronicle of consistent effort and ascendant drive to keep alive the dynamics of academic flourish. The university is in the throes of novelty of vision and constitutive endeavours to script a new dimension in the annals of higher education.

A group of highly committed and ably resourceful faculty members, superbly devoted officials and staff have made it possible for the university to move ahead in such a short span of time. It is really wonderful that within such a short time this university has drawn the attention from all corners. The student community too has a vibrant presence and with futural plans for research and quality academic activism, SKB UNIVERSITY would definitely be a force to reckon with in times to come. Our objectives remain the same, striving towards becoming an academy of the future, an institution of global standard, catering to the service of the nation and the larger mankind.

Its post-graduate departments started functioning from the 2011-12 session with 12 academic departments (Bengali, English, Sanskrit, Santali, History, Political Science, Philosophy, Education, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics & Commerce). Over the years in an expansive and forward looking drive, they grew to 18 departments with the introduction the Economics, Sociology, Tribal Studies, Geography, Zoology & Botany department, many of which are in the frontier areas of Science and Social Sciences.

The university initiated the Department of Tribal Studies to fulfill its mandate of having a vibrant social history and indigenous culture. They are soon going to open the Department of Performing Arts to provide a greater dimension in growth and further development. The university has highly qualified faculty members, motivated students, and adequate supporting and administrative officers and staff to absorb the forces of modernization and globalization in higher education.
