Tamralipta Mahavidyalaya, popularly known as Tamluk College, is a premier educational institution, affiliated to the Vidyasagar University, West Bengal. Its academic culture is as vibrant as its history is rich. This college was established on an auspicious day (2nd August) in 1948 by the dedicated, sincere and concerted efforts of a number of educationists, patriots and enthusiastic people from all walks of life, the leading role of which was taken by widely respected Late Srutinath Chakraborty. They saw education as an exercise in aiding the nation’s growth. We have come a long way from those early years. In its 2nd cycle of assessment, the college has been re-accredited by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) with ‘A’ grade in 2016.
Education is not an act of acquiring knowledge but learning a skill to lead life and forming one’s character and personality. This is a dignifying process of growth. I can boldly say that we have excelled in every initiative that we undertook and we have stood together in facing the challenges in providing quality education. From academics to co-curricular activities, perseverance and a never-say-die spirit are entrenched in the heart of every student not only making them good students but brilliant human beings. In today’s dynamic world, an all-round development and grooming is of supreme importance and through our campus we are creating an environment for future leaders, entrepreneurs and professionals who possess skills and aptitudes in an array of functional disciplines.
Even in monumentally challenging times such as these, with the pandemic, Tamralipta Mahavidyalaya has emerged as a beacon of excellence. Our college seeks to actively combat the challenges brought on by online education. The faculty members work tirelessly to ensure equity in access to online classes. To keep pace with the time, modernization of the existing set up by introducing greater number of smart classrooms and ICT enabled infrastructure have been done with the help of supportive and committed management.
Emphasising on our already proclaimed vision and mission, our earnest attempt should be towards upholding academic integrity, accountability, sustaining open and transparent systems and being sensitive to social responsibilities. This could be possible only through a collaborative, shared and consultative work culture. Building on the strong foundation of the college, let us all strive for cautious, consistent and catalytic improvement in the overall development, paving way for innovative ideas and thinking. Let us all gear up to myriad managerial, economic, societal and environmental challenges. We can recall Swami Vivekananda’s famous words, “We want that education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded and by which one can stand on one’s own feet.”
Our heartfelt intention is to develop an education system where thinking, questioning, imagining, creations and innovations are promoted and encouraged constantly. May our beloved students be fit for the world besides being a true citizen of India.
