Being the only college in a detached Island, situated in the southern-most part of West Bengal, Sagar Mahavidyalaya is the only source of higher education for the students here. The vision of this college is “Educate one, educate the nation”. Sagar Mahavidyalaya is committed to converting its vision into reality in its governance and actions. The college is located in a rural and cyclone-prone coastal area and providing education to the economically weaker section. Since Sagar is completely detached by a flat river from the main land, the students and college staffs here works under extreme conditions. Majority of the students here are first generation learners. This college is trying to create opportunities for them so that they can stand on their own feet and can inspire the next generation.
The motto of Sagar Mahvidyalaya; “Knowledge is Freedom”, is indeed the guiding force behind the policies taken by the institute in order to uphold the mission and vision of the college. The governance and decision making in this college is based on participative management and democratic views. The Governing Body of the college cooperates with the Teacher-in-Charge in every matter to establish and regulate a cordial and scholastic environment n the college. The Teacher-in-Charge personally communicates with the teaching and non teaching staff members to ensure they are not facing any incongruities in their work. The academic and co-curricular activities of the college are regularly discussed in the Teachers’ Council and Academic Sub- Committee meetings which are held regularly. The institution strictly adheres to the Academic calendar.
The administration of this college is very student friendly. In cases of emergency and natural calamities, the college is always quick to take necessary official actions like reducing the admission and semester fee or arrange books for the students. All faculty members actively participate in designing and implanting strategic plans and also collaborate with the students in arranging functions and fests.
