The Sambalpur University Act was passed by the Odisha Legislature on 10th December, 1966 to fulfill long cherished dream of the people of Western Odisha for establishment of a University. The University started functioning from 1st January, 1967 with Prof.Parsuram Mishra as the first Vice-Chancellor. The University was inaugurated on 4th January, 1967 by Hon’ble Chancellor A.N.Khosla. The University started functioning in 1967 in a rented private building at Dhanupali, Sambalpur and in Government building at Ainthapali, Sambalpur from 1968 - 72. In the year 1973 the University was shifted to the present campus named Jyoti Vihar at Burla.
The territorial jurisdiction of the University covers 10 districts of the state of Odisha namely Sambalpur, Sundargarh, Jharsuguda, Deogarh, Bargarh, Bolangir, Subarnapur, Nawapara, Kalahandi, Boudh and Athamallik Sub-Division of Angul District.
Sambalpur University occupies an important position in the academic scenario of the State of Odisha and India. As an institution of higher learning it has become a catalyzing factor of social change in a relatively underdeveloped region of the Odisha. For the last fifty-two years it has remained committed to the pursuit of academic excellence and has earned credibility among the stakeholders. Having obtained from the NAAC an impressive A Grade and CGPA of 3.15 in its second cycle of re-accreditation and occupying a position within the first 150 universities in the NIRF ranking, notwithstanding its insufficient infrastructure and funding, this university proves that a creditable performance can be achieved in the midst of adversity. This is an affiliating university, with 240 colleges still under its jurisdiction which is spread over as many as 10 districts of Odisha. Hence it is entrusted with the responsibility of educating over 90,000 students. Veritably, a mighty oak grown from a tiny acorn, this institution has come a long way. Back in 1967, it was a tiny institution, functioning at Patna House, Sambalpur. The campus at Jyoti Vihar, Burla, was built a decade later, and the academic, administrative as well as residential buildings for students and faculties came up in course of time. The campus at Jyoti Vihar is endowed with lush green woodlands and a peaceful atmosphere that is conducive to learning.
Sambalpur University has expanded its academic profile over the years to comprise 26 Postgraduate Departments in 42 subjects, and running self-financing programmes in 12 subjects. This institution has continuously expanded its curricular range in keeping with the emergent academic needs of the region. It has just opened up the Departments of Master of Social Works, Hindi, School of Performing Arts, Integrated M.Ed and B.Ed. Contractual faculties and Staff are engaged in these Departments at present.
