Student's Union

A brief sketch on the Student's Union

Any college with affiliation to Vidyasagar University has its own Students' Council formerly called Students’ Union to protect the rights of the students. The students of our college also elect members to the Council. The state government vide West Bengal Universities and Colleges (Composition, Functions and Procedure for Election of Students’ Council) Rules, 2017 has put in place an extensive framework for the activities, functions and constitution of the Students’ Council. For example, only those students who have attended at least sixty (60%) percentage of total number of classes in an academic year and have cleared all dues towards tuition or other fees including charges, levied by the college can take part in such elections. Moreover, the whole election process under no circumstances is to exceed thirty days from the first notice of the election to the declaration of its results.

The class representatives elected by the students go on to elect the Students’ Council office bearers, such as the General Secretary, two Assistant General Secretaries and five Assistant Secretaries to the different Union offices like Culture, Sports, Magazine, Aid-Fund, Common Rooms and Science. The President, Vice President and the Treasurer of the Council are, however, nominated by the Principal/Teachers’ Council from amongst the teachers of the college.

Erstwhile called Students' Union, it came into existence in our college in the year 1974. This statutory body has been playing a vital role in promoting academic, scientific, cultural and social interest among the students. It also helps the administration to maintain discipline in the campus. The following are some of the important activities that the elected students’ body has been performing over the years:

  1. To organize Inter-class debate, sports-competition and cultural events.
  2. Publication of annual magazine and various wall-magazines.
  3. To organize recreational activities for students.
  4. Addressing the grievances and problems of the students.
  5. To co-ordinate the relationship between the staff and students.
  6. Managing the ‘Students’-Aid-Fund’.
  7. Social-welfare activities.
  8. To observe and commemorate special days like National Science Day etc.
