The mission of the college is to make, within its limited means, knowledge acquired through higher education reach every deserving school pass out who aspires to take admission to this institution and instill in him/ her a spirit of free inquiry, thereby broadening the scope of higher learning on the one hand, and to help in every possible way students who are needy so that they can carry on and complete their studies and be able to stand on their own feet as responsible citizens on the other.
We envision a future wherein, through our untiring efforts and collective endeavors, the college will attain a still higher place in the arena of learning and emerge as a beacon to the aspirants for quality education not only in Kolkata but also in the state as a whole. At the same time, we do hope that our students – former, present, and future – will play no lesser a role in raising their alma mater to a position of glory by making their own contribution to the process.
