Acharya Prafulla Chandra College (APC College)

Mission & Vision

Today’s Higher Education has witnessed a paradigm shift from elitist esotericism to common man’s right to knowledge. The knowledge landscape is rapidly evolving with a seamless merging of AI and data science with the classical sciences and humanities. This will lead to requirement of a skilled workforce having diverse competencies. With the advent of NEP 2020 the stress will be on holistic development with no rigid subject boundaries. The humbling experience of the pandemic has shown the importance of interdisciplinary research as well as the need to nurture inclusiveness in our future generations. Our pedagogical philosophy should facilitate future generations to imbibe the concept of sustainable growth in their overall approach towards life.

This college is trying to adapt itself to this new way of thinking. The semi-urban location of the college caters to the needs of students who come from the grass-root level; some of them are even first-generation learners. The college is trying hard to set a pedagogic goal that is less hectoring and instructional and more learner-facilitating.
