    INSTITUTIONAL DISTICTIVENESS

    INSTITUTIONAL DISTICTIVENESS

    Our college is located in minority belt surrounded by villages where mostly the people involved in agriculture jobs reside. The students who use to come to have the fruits of higher education here are mostly first generation learners and belong to either lower middle-class or poor family background. At the time of the establishment of this college our vision was to ensure proper higher education to the minority communities with special emphasis on girls. It is a matter of huge satisfaction that from the very beginning we have enrolled more girl students in comparison to boys. In this particular sense we may claim that it is our distinctive characteristic to empower the vulnerable sections, the minority and the women, of our society. To reach the students coming from the needy families with the eagerness to avail the enlightenment of learning, we have also made tuition fee half-free for such students.

    Our college is located in minority belt surrounded by villages where mostly the people involved in agriculture jobs reside. It caters to the demand of large number of people belonging scheduled castes and scheduled tribes. The proof is the demography of the villages in the vicinity of the college. A demographical diversity can be found in the villages around the college. A large number of populations belong to SC, ST and Minority community and many are financially backward. The college encourages the students from these backward areas to enlighten themselves with the blessings of education and shine in life.

    The college has a lush green campus. More than four acres out of 8.8 acres of the total area of the campus is covered with natural and planted floras and faunas. The campus patronizes around one thousand plants and trees belonging to more than hundred species. The college the takes care of the pond that houses a number of faunas. The pond shelters the migratory birds that come in the winter. Thus, the college contributes in building and maintaining a campus that encourages awareness on Nature amidst the students and the staffs and keep the air pollution-free within the campus.

    Ours is an institution which is only fourteen years old and it attracts many first generation learners. But even within these few years it has acquired such a reputation that it even attracts the students from the nearby urban areas like Barddhaman and Durgapur. This is reflected in the admission details, as the number of the students from urban area is increasing every year in considerable amount.

    Galsi Mahavidyalaya is known for its discipline-friendly atmosphere. The staffs and faculties are always advised to maintain the decorum prescribed in the model code of conduct. It is also reputed as a studentfriendly college keeping an ambience of gender equity and women safety. Our Sexual Harassment Cell continuously confirms the question of women safety within the campus.
