Vision of the College:
The educational objective of Ghatsila College is to prepare men and women for the service of the country. The College provides students with plentiful opportunities to critically understand society and its structures so that education becomes a tool to work for a human and just society. Stress is laid on academic excellence, character formation, social concern and human development.
The college is autonomous and places very high value on academics. The courses are rigorous and need daily application. Assignments have to be submitted by the due date. Presentations and participation in seminars and workshops are part of the academic life. College offers a wide variety of extra curricular activities. College has a reading room and a good library. To prepare assignments and papers, it is left to the students to make use of it as much as possible. By the time one graduates, what is expected is to develop the art of critical
horizons, develop self-esteem and confidence and to provide opportunities for the exercise of leadership. Students are requested to join at least one of the Associations and thus develop academic relationships and a spirit of enquiry.
Preparing persons for the service of others is the aim of education in Ghatsila College. At the heart of the college is the Center for Social Concern. All students are invited to have a close relationship with this center for involvement in issues of public concern and develop social consciousness. We expect all our students to be sensitive to the poor and be persons of concern, compassion and conscience. The College offers numerous opportunities to gain an insight into injustices all around. The Center for Social Concern links the College with the community and is involved in various social causes. The College expects all the students to be perceptive to the forces of communalism and casteism that threaten harmony and peace and inflict hardship on the common man. It is the vision of the College to train students who are socially conscious, ready to stake their lives for the oppressed and the exploited. Then alone the College will have succeeded in its mission.
Character development is the essential aspect of education. A person is what his values are. Character includes behaviour, values and attitudes to life and others and the way one faces life. The time in College is the period when one has to build up character, hard work, perseverance, honesty, integrity, sensitivity to others and universal love that embraces all people cutting across barriers of language, religion and caste. Essential to any character formation is self- discipline. Lack of discipline in the College results in chaos and disorder and learning becomes impossible.
The rules of discipline in the College are meant for social wellbeing, order and harmony. You will find them conducive for academic life if you personalize them in the right spirit.
In the spirit of our heritage Ghatsila College thus strives to develop the whole person with a mission in life. Our task as educators is to create in you a deeper understanding of yourself and of the changing world by creating plentiful opportunities for personal and social growth and total development. For the members of the college, education is no commercial activity. It is a mission. Our mission is to build up a group of young men and women who would be agents of change in society and work towards a secular world of fraternity, equality and justice. We have an excellent staff in this College with the same vision and goals. Interact with them. They will be your guides and they will lead you in the right path.
