The beginning was modest, or even challenging. The college did not have a building of its own; the University of Calcutta, to which the college is affiliated, permitted the teaching of Intermediate (Arts and Science) and B.A. and B.Sc. at the pass level; the admission season had already started; not very far were few long-established colleges; much of the immediate hinterland was inhabited by people at the lower rungs of the economy; and the idea of a co-education institution had still not many supporters in the existing social milieu. But an unbounded enthusiasm among local educationists at various levels, and the generosity of a local girls’ school to provide accommodation to the new-born college by shifting its own location made it possible for the latter to start functioning from August 14, 1956 (later on observed as the College Foundation Day) with only 75 students and 2 whole-time lecturers.
Subsequently, the college was allotted land by the Calcutta Improvement Trust, and the first building came up in 1958, the second in 1962, and the third in 1996. The college still has a substantial amount of vacant land under its possession on which it has plans to construct an auditorium-cum-academic building in the near future.
From the humble start as chronicled above, the college has continuously been broadening its academic horizon through introduction of more and more programmes of study and an increasing number and variety of subjects offered. At present, Honours course of study is offered in 13 subjects, viz. Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Mathematics, Computer Science, Zoology, Botany, Microbiology, Economics, English, Bengali, History and Political Science. In addition to these, which are taught at both Honours and General levels, subjects like Philosophy, Sanskrit, Sociology and Statistics are offered at the General level only. B.Com course is taught only at the General level. So the college has laid out a variety for the students to choose from – 3 programmes of study (B.Sc., B.A. and B.Com), 13 Honours subjects and 41 elective combinations, of these three courses of study, viz. Honours courses in Microbiology, Biochemistry and Computer Science are self-financing.
Library, laboratories and other infra-structural arrangements necessary for a proper teaching are continuously been upgraded. Additional civil infrastructural facilities, like class-rooms and laboratories, have been created to accommodate new departments and an increasing number of students.
The college library is housed in a separate building set amidst greenery. There are more than 25,000 books and journals to choose from in an open-access system, and a spacious reading-room. In addition, each honours department has its own departmental library from which students can borrow books with a greater degree of freedom.
Named after Sir Gurudas Banerjee, the first Indian Vice-Chancellor of the University of Calcutta, Gurudas College has developed into a reputable institution of learning since its inception in 1956. At present the College has more than four thousand (4000) students, fifty five (55) supporting and administrative staff and nearly one hundred (100) faculty members.
The College has been successfully accredited by NAAC in 2003 and 2011. Preparations are in full swing for the third cycle of NAAC reaccreditation. At present there are fifteen (15) Hons. Courses and twenty optional/elective general subjects. A recent and significant development is the opening of the Post-Graduate Department of Bengali.
A unique feature of our institution is Gurudas Banerjee Memorial Lecture which is organized annually. Eminent scholars like Prof. RomilaThapar, Prof. Tapan Roy Chowdhury, Sri Ashok Mitra, Prof. NrisinghaProsadBhaduri have delivered this prestigious lecture.
Three UGC-sponsored seminars have been organized in 2016 and one more is going to be held in February, 2017 as part of the 60th anniversary of the College.
The College has a well-stocked library with over 40,000 books and State of the Art laboratories. Besides Central Library, each Hons. Dept. has its own Seminar Library from where students of respective Depts. can consult or borrow books for home. All the science Departments provide the modern facilities like PCR machine, Ultra Centrifuge, Thermal Cycler, Gel Doc, UV Visible Spectrophotometer and many other things. Besides, the College has four Smart Classrooms.
The NSS units of the College have earned appreciation from the University of Calcutta for successfully hosting the Pre-Republic Day Camp. The combined efforts of sincere students, efficient staff and dedicated faculty have earned the college Twocrores as grant under RUSA with the continuing whole-hearted support from the community and stakeholders, we hope to set new academic standards in the year to come.
