‘Preparing students for success In a changing world.’

I am pleased with the website of our college that reflects the institutional strength, promises and provisions as one of the leading institution of our state for providing quality education and empowering the rural students. The institution has been fortunate enough to have energetic, qualified and committed faculty. Its library is rich. The technical staff and other co-staff know their job well. Students are enthusiastic and disciplined, and are mostly from rural regions of eastern U. P. who need our guidance. Time to time, our interaction with their parents and civil society makes it a vibrant center for learning. It is improving in its infrastructure. We need to improve upon our accreditation of ‘C ‘ grade that was bestowed in Feb,2016.

I am sure that in times to come it will be a model institution and a referent point for the Higher
Education in ‘rural areas’. The challenges are hard and road to trace, ‘But I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.’
