Progress of the human civilization is essentially measured by the knowledge it acquires. Whether it is Francis Bacon emphasizing the importance 'Of studies' or T.S. Eliot harping on the 'historical sense' - the formalised
dissemination of knowledge has always been the index of the cultural evolution and sophistication of any community. More than four decades ago, Champahati, Ghoshpur (then a remote village), saw a son of the soil, late Shri Bijoly Bhushan Kar awaken to this need for the spread of education in his native place.
To that effect, he donated about one acre of his ancestral land for the establishment of a college, in memory of his father, Late Shri Susil Kar. With the active and constructive support of like minded people like Late Doctor Durgapada Banerjee, Ex Head master Late Sushil Kumar Putatunda, Shri Ardhendu Adhikary, Late Dr. Tarapada Ghosh, Prof. Late Shri Sharat Ghosh, Shri Bidyut Sarkar, Shri. Bamandeb Majumdar, Late Dr. Bhabendranath Mondal, Late Bijoy Krishna Roy, Smt. Muktamala Kar among others, this visionary's dream materialised. On 5th Sept'1968, Susil Kar College began its journey as a Co-educational undergraduate degree college under the affiliation of the University of Calcutta.
