Institutional Distinctiveness

Karma, Shraddha Gyan, the very emblem of the college, speaks a lot about the priority of Sukanta Mahavidyalaya. Our vision is to establish an academic culture that would help expand the wings of fire among the students and help them explore their hidden potential in different fields. Sukanta Mahavidyalaya puts top priority on students’ learning and assesses the institutional performance and practice towards creating a diversified and all-inclusive healthy teaching-learning atmosphere in the college.

This institution treats the stakeholders in a flexible way and is actively engaged to respond to the needs of the students. As an institution of higher learning, Sukanta Mahavidyalaya promotes positive values through different curricular and extra-curricular activities and motivates students to be involved in physical and intellectual activism.

The institution was named after the famous Bengali poet Sukanta Bhattacharya who took pen to generate burning zeal for freedom among the Indians from the clutches of the British. The college commemorates the great thinkers, freedom fighters, and noble personalities of India on different occasions and promotes the ideals of “Karma Shraddha and Gyan”.

For this, Nodal Officers for backward class and minority students have been actively working to guide SC, ST, and OBC students. Women’s Cell, Student Welfare Policy, and Student Aid Fund all are run by teachers along with representative student members which prepare the students to get various scholarships, free ships, fee concessions, etc. for providing them the opportunity for higher education. The institution put stress on outreach programs and inculcates in its students an awareness of the value of holistic education and empathy for the less privileged sections of society. Social service is also an important component for all students. Active NCC and NSS units of the college organize outreach programs for the student community. The college rallies around natural and manmade calamities and often become a collection center for relief materials. Packaging of these by the students and transportation to distribution centers is a part of the college’s commitment. Value Education classes once a week for students of all years (though not mandatory) are held throughout the year to enable students to discern and make informed choices for life. Soft skills also form part of these classes.
