Principal's message

Principal's Message
At Vedanta College, Kolkata (VCK) we focus on value based education. It focuses on information sharing, knowledge and wisdom which has two dimensions teaching and learning. While teaching is faculty centric, learning is student centric. Teaching is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledgeskillsvaluesbeliefs, habits and attitude. Teaching and learning are two sides of the same coin and both must co-exist in harmony to ensure that the desired goals are achieved. Formal education is commonly divided formally into such stages as pre-school or kindergarten, and secondary school and then collegeuniversity, or apprenticeship. In India, school education has made formidable progress through academic reforms in various forms, including pedagogy, infrastructure and capacity. At the college level, while technical education (namely, Engineering)  has made substantial headway, at least in terms of sheer size; non-technical education (namely, B.A., B.Com and B.Sc) remains archaic. Cost in many cases is also a prohibitive factor. Barring a few elite institutions across the country which caters to the top intellectual minds, in most cases progress has been limited. As a result, the vast youth population at the bottom-of-pyramid has been largely been deprived of quality college education. College education forms the building backbone of the youth, that not only shapes the economy, but society at large. At VCK we aspire to holistically groom the students by combining modern infrastructure, progressive and  disciplined learning environment and promoting a vibrant students culture at an affordable fees structure. The modern youth are going to be the brand ambassadors of 21st century India. Together we make it a reality.
