The University of Gour Banga (UGB) has been established by the West Bengal Act XXVI of 2007 at Malda, West Bengal. It is one of the two new State Universities established by the Government of West Bengal to address to the concerns of equity and access to quality higher education by people in less educationally developed districts which have a less Graduate Enrolment Ratio.
The UGB, with its territorial jurisdiction of the three districts (Malda, Dakshin Dinajpur and Uttar Dinajpur) of the northern part of West Bengal, has been initiated its activities from the academic year beginning 2008 in keeping with the philosophy of achieving and maintaining the highest levels of academic excellence, sensitivity to equity and access in enrolment and recruitment and emerging as a premier national educational and research institution in the country.
The University has nearly 33 acres campus, situated adjacent to the headquarter English Bazaar in the district of Malda, West Bengal State. It is claimed that UGB is one of the first state University to be accredited by the NAAC in a short time among the new ones. The University is also recognized by the UGC under section 2(F) and 12(B). The main objective of the University is integrating the components of Teaching, Research, Innovation, Training and Skill Development with an aspiration to excel in post graduate and research programmess. The University offers the programs under the following three dominant faculties: Arts and Commerce, Sciences, and Education & Law. Currently the University is running with 21 Departments and offering 1 Dual degree programme, 20 Master degree programmes, 18 Research programs.
I deem it my privilege to be the Vice Chancellor of this institute of higher learning which is trying to establish its credentials as an institution where learning, research and publications are pursued with zeal to achieve the objectives enshrined in Indian constitution.
I am happy that this growing University adds noteworthy features each year, as is shown in the annual release of its Newsletters and Annual Reports, which is meant to inform the country its growth profile and potential with reference to a time frame.
Universities, which are regarded as the highest bodies of learning, have to ensure that teaching, research and publications are given priority and pursued with utmost sincerity and commitment so that primary objectives are realised. This is my prime concern and I believe it is also the concern of every stakeholder who is genuinely interested in the growth of higher education.
Diversity in language, culture, belief, tradition, knowledge-systems and way of life, which mark the inclusive secular character of this country and make it unique in the whole world, has to be reflected in the University curricula and in all its academic and research activities.
The University is well aware of the challenges of the contemporary world in establishing a quality educational institution. It is heartening that the system is committed to bring all the required changes to achieve this goal. It is indeed a pleasure to note that the University is advancing significantly in terms of academic activities, infrastructural facilities, and performance of its academia.
I wish all the graduates of the University of Gour Banga the very best in their career.
