“Educate and raise the masses, and thus alone a nation is possible”
Swami Vivekananda’s clarion call to the nation to educate the masses and uplift the poor is the motto of the institution, Government General Degree College, Chapra. The college was established on 30-10-2013, to promote education and impart knowledge to the socially backward areas surrounding the village of Shikra. Since its inception, the college has seen an increased enthusiasm among the local population towards pursuing higher education. They are now motivated to fulfill their dreams and their ambitions of entering the realms of higher education and knowledge. At the same time, students not only from far and wide areas of other other remote villages under Chapra block but also from other neighbouring blocks in Nadia district are now coming to study at this institution. We have a team of young faculty members, who are dedicated to their service and aspire to bring the best out of the students. They persevere tirelessly to look after the needs, desires and interests of the students and encourage them to aim towards excellence.
The college has maintained a smooth relationship with the world of academia as well as community development by organizing different awareness programs and campaigns through National Service Scheme programs. In addition to it, programs such as annual sports, seminars, webinars, workshops, debates and other cultural events are conducted regularly to promote skill development, enhance holistic progress and mark an all round development among the students.
At present we have Honours course programs in disciplines such as English, Bengali, History, Sociology and Political Science. General course programs are offered in the Department of Science such as Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. The Department of Higher Education, Govt of West Bengal has given us permission to open up other academic disciplines such as Education, Geography which would attract more students in the future. Being enriched in flora and fauna of Indo-Bangladesh in origin, the college will be a future centre of Global Biodiversity Conservation study.
I would like to welcome the new students and urge the senior students as well to set up a good example so that a strong academic performance is set up in the college. I do believe that work is the principal asset resulting from Discipline, Perseverance and Patience. On this note, I would also like to wish all of you the very best in your life for all your future activities and endevours.
Thanks and Best wishes,
Dr. Subhasis Panda (WBSES, Ph.D., FIAT, FEHSST),
