Government General Degree College, Mangalkote, affiliated to The University of Burdwan, began its promising journey in 2015 with a group of young dynamic faculty members from various disciplines, resourceful office staff and support of the Higher Education Department, Government of West Bengal, with the objective to offer higher education to the students of this socio-economically backward rural area. The Institution has received the recognition of the University Grants Commission, New Delhi, under section 2(f) and 12B of UGC Act of 1956.
We value individualism, creativity and innovation, and strive to nurture them in our students. Students are the backbone of the nation and our aim is to give them a fruitful and rewarding life so that they can be their own master and take control of their future. Our endeavour is to identify and nurture their talents in all respects and steer them in the right direction in life.
We have a very cordial and friendly environment in the institution. Apart from academic excellence, our students are exceedingly creative in all respects. They participate in socio-culturalactivitiesand sports with great enthusiasm. We have a very resourceful librarywith a large number of books and unlimited Wi-Fi connection throughout the campus.
The Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) of our college is proactive about maintaining academic discipline in the college. In addition to teaching, some of the faculty members are actively involved in high quality research, and publish papers and book chapters regularly in international and national publications of repute.
Strict discipline is maintained within the campus. The college has adopted a zero-tolerance policy towards incidents of ragging within the campus. We have active Anti-ragging Committee and Squad, and Visakha Cell in our college.
For the last two years, COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown has brought about unprecedented disruption in educational sector like other fields of human life. The pandemic hastaught us the importance of online teaching-learning and the necessity of enhancement of e-skills among teachers and students. Wehave collectively faced the challenge during the pandemic, and it is a big relief that finally we have overcome the situation and reverted to the normal offline mode of teaching with chalk and duster.
As the Head of the Institution I feel fortunate to have come across wonderful students, faculty members and office staff, who are the main assets of the institution. I take the opportunity to welcome all to our institution, and offer valuable suggestions and positive criticisms which would help us introspect and improve our modes of delivering public service.
With best regards……
