Vision and Mission

Vivekananda Mission Mahavidyalaya takes upon itself the responsibility to impart quality higher education in the Haldia subdivision of Purba Medinipur district. We are committed to motivate and equip the students from this rural area to compete and survive with their urban counterparts on equal terms. At the same time, we take care to instill in our students the right values and a feeling of responsibility towards society. The students are encouraged to develop themselves through value based education after the ideology of Swami Vivekananda. “Esho Manush Hao”, the immortal words of Swami Vivekananda that enjoins us to become and help others to become right thinking human beings “Be Man & Make Man” remains the abiding ideal of the institution.

The institutional mission therefore is:

  • To encourage the students to apply the ideas learnt in the classroom to real life situations.
  • To motivate the students to learn more than the syllabi and to consider education as a life- long endeavour.
  • To utilize education into making the students better human beings.
  • To promote original thinking.
  • To develop the inherent capabilities of the students.

The mission statement reflects the distinctive nature of the college as it seeks to provide value based quality education to the students belonging to this rather impoverished area of Purba Medinipur. The institution guarantees this by inspiring the students to the ideals of Swami Vivekananda keeping it not only limited to adorning the portals of the institution but making it a part of our life here. Institutional efforts like observing the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda, organizing seminars on such occasions and inviting renowned Swami Vivekananda scholars to instill his teachings into students are some of the initiatives towards that direction. Playing out the immortal speeches of Swami Vivekananda and other great people through the public address system just before the commencement of the college, earmarking a class in the College routine for value education are other such steps towards providing holistic education to our students.

At the same time aware of our position as a twenty-first century institution of higher education we have ensured that our students are provided technological aids keeping with the times. Internet facility, e-learning resources are provided to the students just as innovative teaching learning mechanisms are being worked out for their benefit. Stronger student support systems and availability of facilities geared towards students are all in keeping with our motto of being and making them men in the sense Swami Vivekananda meant.
