When we educate a person, only an individual is educated, but if we educate a woman –we educate the whole family. Perhaps the illustrated group of patriotic and selfless Brahmo leaders of Brahmo Samaj, founded by Raja Rammohan Roy thought similarly. Rammohan College owes its origin to City College, Calcutta which was one of the oldest first grade colleges in West Bengal. In 1943 the City College started a section for the girl students which was inaugurated in the same building at 102, Raja Rammohan Roy Sarani. It started as a morning college with IA and BA classes while B.Sc classes commenced after 1947. In 1961, women’s section of City College was separately affiliated in 1961 to the Calcutta University and renamed as Rammohan College.
The aim of the college according to the founders of Brahma samaj is to promote the cause of education in its highest and widest sense to make education a comprehensive training of the mind, heart and body and founded on theistic basis conductive to the good of mass and glory of God.
The college is open to all students irrespective of race, creed, or caste. It is one of the city group of colleges administered by the Brahmo Samaj Education Society, a registered Society, constituted by the Sadharan Brahmo Samaj, Calcutta.
Rammohan College has gone through 54 glorious years of existence since its inception on carrying the legacy of spreading the quality education to all section of the society. Both teaching and non teaching staffs always work together creating a co-operative atmosphere. The committed faculty members through their sincere dedication guide and help the students in their diligent Endeavour to develop into a good human being and productive member of the society.
