This Undergraduate College of backward Sundarban area offers a multidimensional education spectrum comprising of different branches of Science and Humanities. It is a Study Centre for the P.G. course of Rabindra Bharati University Distance Education. Attempts are on to open a centre for the Netaji Subhas Open University in near future in the campus.
A robust work culture is one of our prized assets. All lectures/tutorials/laboratory works are held regularly as per academic calendar. An efficient mechanism has been shaped for comprehensive planning and delivery of curriculum, feedback and evaluation. Students are also accorded selfless personal attention beyond the class, based on their need and willingness to be helped.
· The College is committed to total transparency in admissions and appointments and abides strictly by UGC rules. Highly qualified, experienced and committed teaching staff and a devoted non-teaching workforce play a pivotal role in our quest for academic excellence in a deprived social setting.
· In spite of its financial crunches and its plain Spartan way of life, the College offers modern teaching aids like audio-visual classrooms, smart classroom, excellent library facility, well-equipped science laboratories, computer facilities, LAN and internet facilities.
The College is proud of its two NSS units, its medicinal plant collection, its Eco-club and various community awareness programs.
A beautiful, green and clean campus provides an ideal learning environment. Raidighi College boasts of a campus whose ambience is in perfect harmony with the Prime Minister‟s Swachh Bharat Mission
A great forte for the College is its aspiring students, who, despite their inhibiting home environment, desire to free themselves from social shackles. A sense of loyalty to the institution and a sense of belonging together as an academic family act as highly motivating factors for all concerned.
It is encouraging that many of our students are pursuing higher education or are in satisfactory employment, in spite of their humble origin.
The College has many shortcomings which are enlisted below:
Rural and remote location of the College is a great disadvantage.
Majority of the population belongs to underprivileged SC, ST and minority groups
General poverty of the locality acts as an inhibiting factor for many aspiring students
Power shortage in the area hampers laboratory work and use of modern learning techniques
Severe financial constraints as suffered by the College in recent times is a big handicap
Further infrastructure is needed for conducting more remedial classes, tutorials, counseling sessions
The College authority encourages all the teachers to take up research assignments and to participate in national and international seminars/conferences.
The College offers Spoken English classes, coaching classes for competitive examinations and computer training for the students.
· Faculty exchange programs and national-level seminars provide an excellent opportunity to interact with academic community beyond the college.
There is scope for starting Honours classes in Chemistry, Botany and Sanskrit in near future.
The career counseling cell of the College arranges career workshop and is about to start an active liaison with the industrial houses.
First -generation learners and girls from disadvantaged sections need to be motivated to overcome social barriers and complete their education
It is necessary to enhance the quality of academic performance of the students
It is necessary to generate scope of employment through industry-institution interaction
Price of laboratory equipments and consumables are ever increasing. But to charge the appropriate amount from the students is beyond the vision of the institution.
Poor communication skill and mediocre intellect level of students are great challenges
