Government Titumir College, Dhaka (সরকারি তিতুমীর কলেজ, ঢাকা) is one of the greatest educational institutions in Bangladesh. In terms of student number it is the largest college in Bangladesh. It is located on the A.K. Khandakar Road in the posh area of Gulshan, Dhaka. This college is named after Mir Nesar Ali Titumir, the first martyr in the struggle for liberation in the subcontinent. It is affiliated with the University of Dhaka.
This college was established on 7 May 1968, by a group of enthusiastic and dynamic people. Then it was named ‘Jinnah College’. In the turbulent days of Non Co-operation Movement on 3 March 1971, this college was named after the name of Shahid Titumir, erasing the name of Jinnah. This was done on the eve of the meeting of Maolana Vashani and Father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at Paltan Maidan. It was led by the important central member of “the Student Action Committee” and student of this College Colonel Md. Abdus Salam (Rtd), Bir Pratik accompanied by some other students. It is obviously very significant to name the college after the name of a brave and dedicated leader during the turbulent hours of our great struggle for liberation.
As a government educational institution, it started as a Degree (Pass) college first. One of the important features of this college is to continue co-education in a generous and congenial environment.
Intermediate course was introduced in this college in 1970. This college was acknowledged by the Dhaka Education Board on 19 May 1971. On 31 May 1972, Honours courses were introduced in Bangla and Chemistry department under the University of Dhaka.
