Maulana Azad College has developed itself over the years and retains its prestigious position as the foremost of institutions. Our Alumni occupy distinguished positions in almost all spheres of in several fields of activity both in the country as well as abroad. It has been a long journey through the eighty-five years and yet the journey has perhaps just begun.
The College has practiced a policy of self-renewal all along and when the time came to reinvent itself in the context of the changing scenario it has upgraded itself with the introduction of three post-graduates.

The College seeks to create an intellectual environment that enhances individual growth and supports scholarly activities and creative endeavors that augment human knowledge and understanding.

Status

The college has been affiliated to the University of Calcutta since its inception.

The college functions under the administrative control of The Higher Education Department, Government of West Bengal.

Accreditation

Maulana Azad College is accredited B++ grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC).

Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the NAAC indicates that it meets criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied though a peer reviews process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.

Accreditation by the NAAC is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.

The College Campus

The college has a three storied building with an impressive hall and two four storied annexe buildings which are maintained by the P.W.D.

The approach road is surrounded by a sprawling garden which is regularly maintained by the P.W.D. and the college staff and there is also sufficient parking space.

The building was conferred the status of a heritage building by Kolkata Municipal Corporation.

Location

The college is located at the heart of Kolkata, on 8, Rafi Ahmed Kidwai Road, Kolkata-700013, a short distance from Esplanade, Sealdah, Park Street and College Street.

Accessible by both road and metro rail, the college is an attractive choice for students not only from Kolkata and districts of Howrah, Hoogly, 24-Parganas (N) and 24-Parganas (S) but also to students of other districts, states, and countries.
