Institutional Distinctiveness

One distinctive feature, rather a challenge faced by our college is the dual constraints of space and time; being a morning college in a building that belongs as much to Bangabasi College and Bangabasi Evening College, the timespan available, i.e. the scheduled working hours happen to be considerably less than any college with a non-sharing campus. Moreover, part of even its own stipulated hours overlap with Bangabasi College creating problems of classroom space as well. Given this situation, it becomes quite a challenge to set a master routine that will not only ensure adequate coverage of the syllabi of so many departments and courses under the CBCS and CCF patterns but also enable faculty members to get enough contact hours with students. The shared base location amongst three colleges also presents numerous obstacles and challenges for conducting seminars, workshops, and cultural programmes. Coordination among the three colleges becomes crucial to managing conflicting schedules and resources effectively, ensuring a smooth flow of events. The Coordination Committee comprises of the Principals, the President, one Teaching representative and one Non-Teaching representative of the Governing Bodies of three colleges and is there to resolve any discrepancy amicably. Room allocation and logistic arrangements require careful planning to accommodate the diverse activities. Communication problems may arise, necessitating clear protocols to address issues promptly and ensure the success of cultural exchanges. Despite these hurdles, collaborative efforts lead to innovative solutions and enriched learning experiences for students of all three colleges. Thus, Bangabasi Morning College can boast of making a concerted and resilient effort to overcome the above-mentioned obstacles and persist in making the best use of the limited resources available. In addition, the considerably large extent of social work and outreach activities undertaken commendably supplement the sphere of academics. It is this track record of standing above such spatio-temporal limitations that distinguishes Bangabasi Morning College as was borne out during the last accreditation process in 2016.
Communication is the lifeline of any teamwork; here we can refer to the role of the NSS team of our college. The NSS Team of our college played a very important role during the time of Covid 19. The team had been engaged in relief work of various kinds in slums and helped the poor and needy people a lot. They distributed dry food items, fruits, commodities of daily use, masks, sanitisers, etc. They also organised international webinars on the COVID-19 pandemic and emerging Issues of women, children and elderly people during that time. They organised programmes that pledged to fight Covid 19. They also organised blood donation camps, observed Constitution Day, and International Mother Language Day and conducted an online Quiz competition on World Environment Day. They created awareness videos and posters for observing International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.
The NSS team of our college had performed commendably campaigning from door to door to create awareness among people for avoiding the use of plastics. They organised workshops, where people learnt how to make eco-friendly homemade ‘Rakhis from natural resources at Makaltala. They have observed Van-Mahotsab by planting trees in different places like Carmichael Hostel, Ramakrishna Mission Institute, Golpark, Tapuria Ghata, Park Street Cemetery, Prinsep Ghat, etc. Establishing clear protocols and channels for communication becomes imperative to address emergent issues promptly and facilitate swift decision-making. Moreover, fostering a culture of mutual respect and understanding among stakeholders fosters an atmosphere conducive to collaboration, where divergent perspectives converge to yield innovative solutions and enriching experiences.
Amidst the myriad challenges lie opportunities for synergy and collective growth. Collaborative efforts not only amplify the impact of individual initiatives but also cultivate a sense of unity and camaraderie among students and faculty across the three colleges. The amalgamation of diverse talents, ideas, and perspectives ignites a creative spark that propels the collective endeavour forward, transcending boundaries and unlocking new realms of possibility.
In the realm of cultural programmes, the intersection of traditions, art forms, and expressions offers a fertile ground for exploration and celebration. By showcasing a diverse array of cultural events, ranging from music and dance performances to art exhibitions and culinary showcases, the colleges foster crosscultural understanding and appreciation. Embracing diversity as a source of strength, rather than a source of division, cultivates an ethos of inclusivity and mutual respect, nurturing a vibrant tapestry of cultural exchange within the shared ecosystem.
While the journey may be fraught with challenges, the rewards of collaborative synergy and cultural enrichment are immeasurable. By leveraging collective resources, expertise, and enthusiasm, the colleges transcend individual limitations to create a dynamic hub of intellectual inquiry, artistic expression, and cultural vibrancy. The teachers of all departments encourage the students to take part in quizzes, debates, seminars, cultural programmes, wall magazines and sports, as they enhance their self-confidence for the future. All the Science Faculty members regularly organise educational tours, excursions, and training programmes while all departments organise seminars with subject experts from other Academic Institutions as resource persons. Through unwavering dedication, adaptive resilience, and a shared vision of excellence, the three colleges forge ahead, navigating the complexities of shared space with grace and ingenuity, leaving an indelible mark on the landscape of higher education.
