Uluberia College, the dream-child of an educationist and Headmaster of a local high school Sri Haripada Ghoshal, started its journey on 16th August, 1948. Sri Ghoshal, the founder Principal of the college, wanted to start an
educational institution for higher studies especially for the girls who had to discontinue their education after completion of their school studies as there was no college nearby. He started the college with a handful of boys and girls, practically begging door to door for the girl students. Now his dream has been fulfilled - the number of girl students is increasing day by day and in some streams they have outnumbered their other halves.With the passage of time Uluberia College, as an institution of higher studies imparting UG courses to all aspiring learners from diverse communities (minority- dominated) and economic background from rural areas, has prepared, modified and upgraded itself to meet the academic challenges and changing demands of the learners and society.
The acceptance of accreditation system by NACC in colleges and universities has undoubtedly become very much beneficial for the improvement of academic atmosphere of the educational institutions and our institution is no exception to this. Besides efficiently carrying on the regular and traditional form of imparting UG courses in the Arts, Science and Commerce Stream, the curriculum has now diversified to conduct PG course in Botany, Zoology, Environmental Science, Commerce, English, Bengali, History and Sanskrit in the Distant Mode. No effort is spared for the all-round development of the students by the faculty. The college strives to make individuals who were not only academically sound but also well balanced and morally good. All these qualitative as well as quantitative achievements on the part of our institution have been achieved by ceaseless efforts on the part of our administration, teaching, non-teaching as well as student union.
