Sido Kanhu Murmu University is situated in areas that is dominated by the Santhals and the Pahariyas Adivasi. Named after Sido and Kanhu, the two great martyrs of Santhal Hul of 1855, who manumitted the aborigins – the Pahariyas and the Santhals and also other dwelling in this region from he exploitation by the money-lenders, Zaminadars as well as the persons enjoying powers, Sido Kanhu Murmu University, Dumka was established with the aim of providing facilities for higher education and research in the Santhal Parganas where the facilities were poor or none. Even then, within the limits and constraints, S.K.M. University has been serving the purpose for which it was established, admirably, by bringing about a social and educational revolution in the Santhal Parganas. The poor tribal communities and other disadvantaged groups of this region have taken to higher education in a big way through the easy and affordable access that this university provides through its close-knit and efficient network of colleges and P.G. Depts. spread across the hilly and intractable terrain of the Santhal Parganas.
The region of the Santhal Parganas presents a classic case of regional imbalance, with no industry, with no Medical College and Engineering College, no good school while its Sister region Chotanagpur can boast of all the conditions like high level of industrial development, infrastructure facilities, engineering and medical colleges, excellent schools and colleges and so on that go to make a region developed.

Indian School of Mines University (ISMU) Dhanbad
With the Mines Bill becoming a law vide Indian Mines Act – VIII of 1901 the necessity for establishing a government college of Mining Engineering at some suitable place in India on the pattern of the Royal School of Mines was felt by the then Indian Government. The Indian National Congress, the leading political party that was perhaps the sole spokesman of the masses of those days was quick to endorse this view of the government through its resolution taken at the 17th. session held at Calcutta in December 1901. A committee consisting of mining experts under the Chairmanship of Macpherson, the Chief Secretary, Government of Bihar and Orissa was formed to study the system of mining education in England. The report of this committee was the main basis for establishment of Indian School of Mines at Dhanbad. The Government of India in 1920 decided that the proposed institution should be an All India Institution financed by the Central Government and be named Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad. The Indian School of Mines was formally opened by his Excellency The Vice Roy Lord Erwin on 9th. December, 1926.
Diversification and Growth
Up to 1967 it was a pure government institute where the faculties were recruited through the UPSC Selection Board. ISM had an All India Character and national outlook from the very day of its inception.
The all round achievement by the graduates of Indian School of Mines in nation building was duly recognized and the School was granted university status under the UGC Act in 1967. From 1996-97 the School came directly under the Ministry of HRD, Government of India with pay scales and perks to its employees at par with that of IITs/IIMs.
Situated in the heart of the country’s prime coking coal belt, 260 kms from Kolkata with a campus spread over 88 hectares the fully residential ISM has all the facilities of world class academic institute.

At the centre of the astamandala is a Lamp with the flame representing the learning that dispels the darkness of ignorance and prejudice. The base of the circle holding the astamandala and the lamp, again is rooted in ancient Indian culture depicting the contours of Mauryan sculpture. The letters are in the Pali style.
