Condemned by the Nation.
Welcome to Kamala Nehru Women’s College,Unit-1,Bhubaneswar,Khurda,Odisha ,"EDUCATION IS NOT THE LEARING OF FACTS,BUT THE TRAINING OF THE MIND TO THINK "- ALBERT EINSTEIN

Brief History:-

The long felt need of the capital city of Bhubaneswar and the growing requirement of the inhabitants for higher education was met in the year 1979 when the second Women’s College in Bhubaneswar was established by Late Dhiren Patnaik, a renowned and dedicated social worker. The former name of this college was Bhubaneswar Women’s College. But the name was changed to Kamala Nehru Women’s College. The aim of the founding Secretary was to spread women’s education in Odisha.

Initially, the college started functioning in the presmises of Buxi Jagabandhu People’s Association on hire basis. Then the college was shifted to the building in Unit-I allotted by the state Government in the year 1980. By the noble sacrifice of founding Secretary and the efforts of the then Principal Miss Rita Biswal, the college got the Government concurrence and the privilege of affiliation of Utkal University. We are very much grateful to the Ex-Chief Minister of Odisha Mr. Biju Patnaik, who had donated 3 acress of landed property with a number of buidings, for the noble purpose.

The college started functioning with only 196 students 17 lecturers and 3 office bearers. Then with the public demand the B.A. classes were opened in the same year. The college is ideally located in the heart of the capital city of Odisha. At present the student strength is around 1850 with 115 teaching staff and non teaching staff. +3 courses in science has been opened keeping in view the increasing demands of the students of capital city. The college also provides teaching facility in commerce in +3 level. At present, it provides Honours teaching in Anthropology, English, Economics, Education, History, Home-Science, Odia, Political Science, Psychology, Sanskrit, Sociology, Hindi, and Philosophy.

The college has provision for Honours in all the departments of the science faculty from the academic session 2009-10.

Above all we have opened P.G. classes in Sociology, Pol. Sc., and Odia from the academic session 2019-2020.

Our college is one of the premier colleges of Bhubaneswar. It has a name in matters of student discipline, standard of teaching, student-taught relationship and satisfactory performance of students in the University Examinations.

The student strength of the college is gradually growing over the years. It is expected that by the active support and sincere endeavour of the students, staff and the members of the governing body, this temple of learning will have a name in the history of women education in Odisha by keeping the high ideals of late Kamala Nehru in whose sacred memory this institution has been establihsed.
