About College
Galsi Mahavidyalaya started its journey on 15th June 2007 in a building provided by the Managing Committee of Galsi High School. The Honorable founders of Galsi Mahavidyalaya aimed at bringing the benefits of collegiate education to boys and girls belonging to economically disadvantageous rural families who could not move out and join other centers of learning. Dissemination of ideas, knowledge and education, providing facilities for extracurricular activities for physical, moral , social and cultural upliftment and various community oriented outreach programmes specially for the girls are also the stated goals and objectives of the Mahavidyalaya.
In fact , Galsi Mahavidyalaya was established through local people’s initiatives to impart instructions at undergraduate level, beginning with just 129 students. The college received affiliation from the Burdwan University, 2007 and came under the grant-in-aid grid of the Higher Education Department, Govt. West Bengal.
Our college made a very humble beginning in the year 2007. From then on all the teachers, office staff, students and local people have relentlessly been trying to raise the standard of the institution. Presently the college has five permanent teachers (including Principal & out of ten approved posts), seven non-teaching staff, sufficient number of Govt. approved part-time teachers and guest teachers who, within a very short time, have taken all the due responsibilities. We are thankful to them.
In 2007, the college started with general courses in five subjects in Arts stream, namely Bengali, English, History, Political Science and Sanskrit. In the session 2008-09, the University of Burdwan extended its affiliation to Honours in History & English. In the session 2009-10 & 2013-14, the college achieved further extension of affiliation of Honours in subjects namely Bengali & Sanskrit & Philosophy respectively and received affiliation in Geography (General) course in the session 2014-2015. The college received affiliation in Political Science honours course in the current session 2015-16.
The majority of our students come from families of peasant background. As co-educational institute the college has played an important role in paving the way for higher education for the girls from the agricultural hinterland of Galsi. In the new academic session, the college has taken up many projects to fulfill its mission of providing and upgrading its facilities, resources and scopes in order to make a productive blend of knowledge and skill based education in its curricula as well as explore job-opportunities in the volatile Indian market.
Keeping in mind the economic condition of most of the students during the session 2015-16 the college will arrange for remission of tuition fees (10% of total students in each class for 6 months) for the needy students on the basis of their performance on the class tests / test examination and class attendance. The college has also arranged to provide the facility of the library to the students within its limited capacity. In the previous academic years the college has successfully organized a number of cultural competitions, Annual Social Function and Prize Distribution ceremony etc. Some of our students representing the college in the annual inter-college cultural competition organized by the University of Burdwan have achieved remarkable positions in different events. The college also organizes inter-class tournaments and annual sports meet and our students represent the college in the District University sports meet. Under the affiliation of the University of Burdwan the college has opened two units of NSS which is considered as an integral part of education.
We would like to tender our sincere thanks to Dr. J.B. Medda, Ex Inspector of colleges, Univeristy of Burdwan for his valuable suggestions in the crucial day. We are indebted to the Headmaster, teaching and non-teaching staff of Galsi High School not only for providing our former college premises but also in all sphere of activities since the day of opening of the college. The headmaster acted as the Teacher-in-charge of the college for a long time. The teaching and non-teaching staff of the school spent a lot of time in different activities of the Mahavidyalaya. We are indebted to them.
We are thankful to Hon'ble M.P. (Ex and the present), the Hon'ble M.L.A., Sabhapati, Executive Officer, Galsi II, Rice Mill Owners' Association, Land doners, Higher Education Directorate for extended their support for development of the college. Finally, we are thankful to the local people for their financial support, commitment to the cause, open hearted cooperation and relentless efforts towards development of their beloved institutions.
The college is thus reinforcing its strength to blaze forth as one of the premiere institutions in the rural vicinity and in near future not only for its infrastructural development, but also for the great plunge it has taken to ensure quality education at the UG level.
Finally, it is our appeal to all for finding our directions on going from strength to strength by translating weaknesses into positives.
