Millat College, Darbhanga was established in 1957 and it was sponsored by “The Muslim Anjuman-e-Taleem, Darbhanga.” It was the first Muslim Minority College of Bihar after Independence. First,It was started in the campus of Shafi Muslim High School, Laheriasarai and later on it was shifted to its own buliding in 1962. Dr. S.A. Hafeez Salfi was the founder secretary and Janab Molvi Abdual Wadood was the founder president of this college and Prof. Abdus Salam was the first Principal of this college. It was converted into a constituent unit of L.N.Mithila University in Feb. 1976 with effect from 01.04.1975. The College aims at promoting and to foster and advance higher education among the people pf educationally backward area of Mithilanchal.
The College is imparting teaching from Inter to Degree (Honours) Level in almost all popular subject in the faculties of Science, Arts and Commerce. Admission is open to student of all communities without any discrimination of religion, cast, creed and sex . After completion of successful fifty year in 2007, the college has celebrated its golden Jubilee celebration in May 2008
There is facility of co-education in this College but I have no reservation to admit that over seventy percent of the students studying in this college are girls and most of them to the Muslim Community.It is a glaring example of woman-empowerment. The motive behind the establishment of this college was to generate an interest among the Muslim girls toward education and I am Happy that it is being fulfilled
Most of the boys and girls studying in this college hail from the families much below the creamy layer and it is for this reason that the college administration has arranged U.G.C. sponsored Remedial coaching class and coaching classes for entry in services to their great benefit. A counseling cell is also running in the college in which erudite scholars give proper advice to the students and help them achieve their respective missions in life. This College has graded by NAAC and obtained ‘B’ Grade in August 2014 for five years.
This is an era of technical and professional education and so U.G.C. sponsored 3 year degree course in Environment and water management is being imparted in this college. The students pursuing this course find it very easy to hunt out a job for them and their success is a matter of pride for the college. This college does not only equip the students with modern education but also help them promote cultural and moral values that they have in legacy. I have every hope that the students and guardians will leave no stone unturned on their part for the steady progress of the college by sincerely helping the administration in building up a congenial educational atmosphere.
