“There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of the woman is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly only on one wing”
These golden words of Swami Vivekananda towards the uplift of women in India, leads us to realise that fostering higher education among women can only lead to any real good for our society. With this noble vision in mind, Dhupguri Girls’ College also aims to nurture and cultivate the zeal for learning and education amongst women, especially in this region of Dooars, North Bengal. This educational journey of the girls’ from this margin of Bengal has lots of challenges and impediments and yet, we, at Dhupguri Girls’ College believe that education alone can help women to discover their standing and value in the modern world. It is an un-ending and ongoing process and is not merely repeating rote learning but a holistic goal where every educationist yearns to install in every student a sense of virtue and wisdom, sensitivity to the needs of others, the skills, the attitudes and habits that would help them explore and excel in the 21st century world.
In recent years the college has grown abundantly. Keeping pace with the rapidly changing academic scenario in our country, our college has implemented the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) from the 2018-2019 academic session. We offer Hons( Major) in Bengali, English, Geography, History and Political Science apart from Pass courses in Bengali, English, Sociology, History, Philosophy, Geography, Political Science and Education.
The college expects to provide a platform for the students to come up with a more nuanced understanding of the various disciplines as well as to expose them to more career oriented and professional methods of learning. In order to facilitate the all-round development of our students, the college aims to organize academic seminars, skill-enhancement workshops and various other co-curricular activities in the coming years. To be an exemplary college in the field of women’s higher education in this locality, it is our solemn duty and responsibility to ensure purposeful education that is recognized locally and regionally and empowering our women students, to sustain and strengthen the cultural, social, economic and environmental well-being of their environment. We want each one of our students to learn from their inspiring Faculty members. I am proud of teachers and other staffs of the college, who care, nurture and reassure the students so that they grow into mature, sensitive and responsible citizens.
I assure that Dhupguri Girls’ College will always remain more than anything, a temple of learning, where there are “equal opportunities to all so that they rise to their fullest potentials”. I will also ensure to the best of my ability, that amidst the current pandemic situation, our college will try to impart education with all innovative and online facilities to our students. Our challenge is to bring up the college at par with other colleges of repute in this locality and for this I look forward to wholehearted participation on the part of students, staff members, Teaching as well as Non-Teaching and everyone associated with the college. .
