Glorious Past


When and how J.V.N.P was born ?

National Council of Education, Bengal was established by National leaders during the British rule on March 11, 1906. Sri Aurobindo and Rabindranath Tagore conjoined with the galaxy of luminaries forming the Council’s first faculty. The National Council of Education, Bengal which is the parent body of the Jadavpur University 1955 is also the founder of Jadavpur Vidyapith which was established on 11th March, 1957.


Why J.V.N.P was born?

In a discussion with other fellow members and professors of National Council of Education, Bengal- Dr. Triguna Sen raised an issue about the Council’s activity in his chamber at the “Aurobindo Bhawan”. He put forth the suggestion of setting up a model school on the remaining two bighas of land that lay vacant in the possession of the National Council. Thus the journey started.

Keeping pace with the ardent desire of Dr. Triguna Sen, a sub-committee was formed to design the course curriculum and syllabus structure of the school. In February 1957, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy, President of the council approved the establishment of the school on the basis of the recommendations of the sub-committee.


After birth the first step it took
