Mission & Vision

MISSION

The mission of college is ‘Advancement of Learning’- the method followed to achieve the supreme good for oneself. Here in this college, the goal is to serve the students, mostly as they are, coming from economically, socially, and educationally constrained circumstances by providing them quality education by:

(i) Exposing young minds to advanced scientific topics and imparting hands-on training with sophisticated analytical instruments

(ii) To establish the college as a potential centre of research activities thus creating a strong tradition of deep-rooted academic culture and an ambience that favours the scholarly activities of the faculty.

(iii) Imparting a character-building education by a balanced development of the body (physical) and soul (spiritual) so that the students may turn out to be wise citizens able to shoulder the responsibility of the Nation.

(iv) Developing a culture of labour and service, focus and perseverance, simple living and high thinking is transmitted to the students who are the future of the nation.

VISION

The vision of the College gradually changed with time, especially with spreading literacy mission all over West Bengal. The College tries to attract students from the minority community as far as possible. This is more important in the case of girls from the minority, who are admitted to the Morning section of the College which exclusively serves girls. The College endeavours to inculcate communal harmony among the learners by convening Saraswati puja as well as observing Navi Diwas.

The College adopts an inclusive approach through expanding the scope of education to farther areas beyond the immediate rural belt surrounding the townships. Thus the College ventured to accommodate students from as many as the four districts, to acknowledge the collective aspiration of the prospective students from this rural belt for social identity. Simultaneously the College allows special assistance to the SC/ST and minority students. The rise in the numbers of the first generation learners became a salient feature in the rural belt mentioned earlier. This resulted in continual rise in the intake of students in the College. The College was doing its best to cater higher education to this increasing mass of aspiring students.

PHILOSOPHY 

The Philosophy of the Institution is to encourage collaborative management among the various stakeholders like students, teaching & non-teaching staff, alumni and guardians of the students. Therefore, representatives from all these sections are incorporated at different levels of management of the College.

At the apex of management is the Governing Body of which three teaching and two non-teaching staff are members. The Principal is the Secretary of the Governing Body and President of the Teachers’ Council (of which all permanent teachers are members) and thus he acts as a liaison between the two bodies. All academic decisions are made by the Teachers’ Council as a whole and the IQAC. Permanent faculty, alumni, guardians, General Secretary of the Students’ Union, eminent persons of the neighbourhood are members of IQAC which guides the teachers as well as the authority on the academic and other performances of the College.

Previously, the College did not set up budget for the sessions. However, budgets have been prepared for the last two sessions for the major expenses all round the year. Expenditure is also made on need basis in case of emergency.

Rallies were organized and cultural events took place where volunteers and the village people jointly participated. Talks were held and problems highlighted and addressed.

  1. The Blood Donation Motivation Course involved 16 classes from resource persons of West Bengal Voluntary Blood Donors’ association.
  2. In the session 2017-18, a rally was held to mark the occasion and a talk was organized where Shri Debabrata Mukherjee, headmaster of Bharati Bidya Bhaban enlightened the audience on Drug abuse and related violence.

5.Evidence of success

  1. It was seen that various events could be organized on social cultural and farming awareness in which the village people took active part. Joint cultural events could be organized in which both volunteers and village women and children participated. The events ranged from health checkup and motivation towards regular Health Checkups to Aids Awareness, Female Foeticide, Population Control awareness to usage of Uncultivable Land and others. Volunteers  learnt how to connect to the people of the community, Leadership skills, Empathy and Tolerance that are tools of survival.
  2. The course has helped to motivate great number of students and the donation has increased. The blood is collected by Hemraj Blood Bank of Katwa Sub-Divisional Hospital.
  3. The number of volunteers participating has increased and awareness awareness has spread to a greater degree.

6. Problems encountered and resources required

  1. As such the problem that can be cited was mainly the initial difficulty of convincing the people of the village to participate and learn from the awareness camp. However with time this difficulty could be overcome. The NSS Unit put forward some suggestions that it experienced from the camp:
  • Regular communication with community people should be maintained
  • Local public sanitation problems should be solved with the help of the Panchayat
  • Community people living below poverty line should be convinced to use locally available resources properly so that they can earn livelihood.
  • The idea of Swachh Bharat & Nirmal Bangla should be internalized by the communitypeople.
  • Steps should be taken for cultural upliftment.
  • To create more community assets plantation on uncultivable lands should be encouraged.
  • Community people should be trained on Mushroom cultivation, Poultry farming, Gobar - Gas plants, etc. .
  • Stress should be laid on population education & value - based education.
  • Coummunity should be taught the uses of medical plants.
  • Frequent seminars on how to prevent environmental pollution.
  • Regular follow – up of all the launched programmes should be maintained.
  1. The college suffers from acute shortage of space. Therefore the reading room of the library is usually procured for holding blood donation camps.
  2. There could be a follow up mechanism and application of this awareness could be checked from time to time.

 

INSTITUTIONAL DISTINCTIVENESS

Empowerment of women is the need of the day and the College has a vision to accomplish this by spreading education among the girls. The College has a separate section, i.e. the Morning Section, dedicated specially for female learners. Female students who want to pursue General Course in Humanities are catered to in this section. Female learners aspiring to pursue Honours Course in Humanities, Science and Commerce are admitted to the Day section of the Institution. There is a considerable minority population in the neighbouring districts of Burdwan, Birbhoom, Nadia and Murshidabad. The College tries to attract students from the minority community as far as possible. This is more important in the case of girls from the minority coming from comparatively conservative background, who are admitted to the Morning section of the College. Special care is taken so that Kanyashree, a special governmental scholarship for girl students of the state of West Bengal is applied for and reaches the female students of the College in time. The College has a separate common room with a lady attendant exclusively for the girl students. The Institution also has a separate hostel for girls where female students coming from distant places can be accommodated at a cheap cost. The hostel has a male security for night time watch. The Institution has an Internal Complaints Committee which may be taken advantage of by the girl students in case of gender discrepancy. Fortunately no such case has been reported yet among female learners.
