Professor Gopalchandra Misra

Message of the Vice-Chancellor

The land of Gour Banga has been held in high esteem as a seat of learning from the hoary antiquity of the history of Bengal. Hence the foundation of the University of Gour Banga on this illuminated land in a momentous moment of 2008 is one of the memorable events in the educational and the social history of North Bengal. The occurrence inevitably plays a vital role of a catalyst to bring about social changes especially among educationally backward and economically diffident Muslims and other tribal communities of the region. The University, in fact, started its journey with a firm vision to enkindle the ever effulgent light of knowledge and research intent of the students of underprivileged class and communities so that they can achieve high academic standing and redeem their innate potential. Being surrounded by a rural setting with enormous human resource and diverse Nature, our beloved University is determined to pay back something significant to the society by means of rendering a centre for its faculties who will embody the spirit of excellence in teaching, research, scholarship, creative activities, and community engagement. And the mission of all sections of faculty members of this University, so far I believe, is to contribute their best for fostering morally distinguished, ethically grounded and socially compassionate students who will evolve a breakthrough in regard to varied social evils and problems. Even more, in search of attaining the status of one of the leading centres of learning, research and professional training, the University looks forward to its future with a note of confidence. Therefore, in the coming years, I hope that the University will surely be able to cater its best services and benefits to its students to make them fit for combating local, national and global challenges and, positively respond to community needs of this part of Bengal. Let us all be happy as well as enchanted with the warm association of our University which is dedicated to be ever adhered to 'Ṛta', the everlasting principle, without which none and nothing on earth can survive even for a moment.
