from the Principal’s Desk ……..
At the outset, I take this privilege to extend my hearty welcome to all the new comers for choosing this College as the next step of your journey to the arena of Higher Education. In this College, you will get beautiful minds with diverse groups of people reflecting their wonderful diverse ethos and you are going to learn so much from one another during the period of your studies. Most of our students come from the rural hinterlands. They hail from wide and varied backgrounds and landscapes such as the hills, the plains and the towns. We should try ourselves to understand one another and try to gather new thoughts, new learnings and new perspectives across our day to day interactions for we can enrich our life by applying them into the arenas of our own personal and social lives. Taking cue of whatever resources available with us, let us try to build your life brick by brick with an open and flexible mind.
Be focused on your areas of studies with determination, perseverance and passion. Be confident about developing values. Nurture your ambition with a firm will. Permit some space for creative activities also. Engagement with social activities will augur well for you but simultaneously you must commit yourself to your core mission of higher learning.
All the faculties in this campus are highly committed and focused onto their own areas. A good chunk of them have been awarded the ‘Doctor of Philosophy Degree’ and from among the rest, a few have attained the ‘M.Phil Degree’ from different Universities of repute.
The college is proud of having a list of glittering alumni. They are conspicuous by their presence in areas and fields as diverse as the academics, administration and management, science, technology, engineering, medical, entertainment sector, media and social works. Few are contributing their services in abroad. A few of them have done or been engaging in excellent research works even Post Doctoral Researches in recent and diverse areas within and outside the Country. The alumni of our College are the actual reflectors of the quality assurance we have.
You would also be happy to know that the College has recently undergone the second cycle of NAAC assessment, for which the NAAC Peer- team visited our institution in the month of September last. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council(NAAC) is an autonomous body formed under the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India with its Head Office at Bangalore. It has been entrusted upon the responsibility to assess and accreditate the Higher Educational Institutions of the Country. The NAAC assessment is a continuous process and every Institution must participate in the assessment and accreditation process successively after every five years. For some unavoidable reasons, it took about twelve long years to get ourselves assessed by the NAAC after the first assessment. In the latest round of assessment last year, in spite of all our hard work for getting a good score, NAAC accreditated our institution with CGPA 2.71 out of 4 points and awarded B+ grade. No matter, whatever may be the interpretation on this grade, ours is a rural based college with students from the surrounding rural hinterlands populated by socio-economically disadvantaged and marginalized communities. From such a perspective, this is a good score and I personally thank everybody involved in the process of assessment for making the entire process a success.
Ours is a multi-faculty College having a wide range of subject variations. If we compare our college with some other good scoring colleges within the state, we find that we can be boast of having many good facilities: better teaching staff, better Library facilities, better Computer laboratories, better class room facilities, better infrastructure, better canteen facilities, better hostel facilities and many better options that we are having.
Finally, let me also say that only by earning good scores in examinations we cannot hope to lay a pathway to earn a respectable and happy life for ourselves. To transform our life in the positive direction, we also need to learn the necessary life skills besides nurturing a standard of values and character. However, to make all this happen, we need guidance and counsellings from dedicated and dynamic teachers. Such teachers could only be the best of facilitators in this regard.
I once again welcome you all with all the warmth of my heart to this institution while wishing you all success in your academic pursuits in the forthcoming and all other academic sessions ahead.
