Mission & Vision


The management along with all the faculties always focuses on parting quality education with students, so that the boys and girls basically comes of rural environment must achieve success in the race of competition. Since the very beginning days of every new session, students are taken with priority so that our mission may come true in words and deeds. Just after introductory classes, the heads and the teachers begin to have a minute care over students study and conduct. If something is found wrong, such students are immediately called and counselled. During counselling the teachers come across the weak points of the students. It is noted in written and the solution is found out through discussion. Some times, if it is needed, parents are also called and the teachers through discussion with them, try to find out the proper way so that such a student can concentrate him or herself towards his or her study. Sometimes even after all efforts no way is seen to derive any positive comes out, strict steps are also taken.
As most of our students come of poor classes and weaker sections of society, so the purchasing capacity of books etc of their guardians is very low. Indeed, guardians are not able to purchase essential books too. So, the library committee has made special arrangement for such students who are interested in study are allowed to study books of their choice in the reading room. Besides, they can carry books with them after getting them issued.


1.The students of Science are provided sufficient lab activities. There is proper arrangement of practical classes in the college routine.
2.Live talks between the teachers and the students in tutorial classes are very useful for students. In fact, in tutorial classes they become able to make themselves extrovert which is very helpful to them in the fields of practical life.
3.Students are often sent of educational trips considering excursion as a part of education. Periodical Tests or class tests are also useful for students. The teachers come to know about the weak points of the students and further try how they can remove away the weakness of the students.
4.Finally, it can be said what mission our college has fixed, every member at his level try to achieve the best by helping, guiding and co-operating students.
