Aims & Objectives of the College
The underlying aim for the enhancement of the literacy rate and the level of awareness about the different problems related to social, political, cultural and economic nature among the people of this rural-based semi-urban area had led to the socially and economically well established people of the decade of 60′s to open a college with a very few students, hardly 3 or 4 teachers, 2 or 3 non-teaching staff, 2 or 3 rooms with average space. Given the socio economic condition of this area surrounded by the college where nearly 20%-30% people lying in and round the poverty line and approximately 20% drop out candidates every year mainly due to poor economic conditions. The college therefore, endeavours, provide a better learning opportunity value and retain a real care for the less able and under-privileged so that they develop into self supporting individuals. Over the last four decades, the college has opened up new subjects either in honours or in general e.g. in Economics, Philosophy, Bengali, Geography, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Political Science, English, Botany with History and Accountancy to begin with in the year of inception in 1964. In today’s world of Globalization and modernization particularly in mass communication and information technology, we have opened new departments: – Computer Science and Electronics. Since technology has advanced and come up a long way in the past few years, we found it utmost essential to open up courses in these two areas. The ready access to computers and relevant course matter will benefit students in their future job search. We all know that a student can never develop his mental and physical aptitudes unless and until he or she has enough physical fitness. Keeping in mind the usefulness of this particular area, we have also opened a new subject of Physical Education and a Gym Training Centre. The College has opened a study centre of Netaji Subhas Open University from January, 2004 to facilitate graduate and post-graduate distance education to meet the needs of the society.
