Head of The Institution
Professor Sangeeta Tripathi Mitra, M.A. Ph.D.


  Within the tenure of my work as the Principal in Bethune College, this is a realization that administering an educational institute is rather unique in comparison to any other establishment. Devotion is imperative to reach nearer to perfection of an effort, but for imparting education along with inculcation of morale amongst the students, affection appears to be more important. Policy for maintenance of discipline for the professional staff may not always be identical as that of the students. A teacher-administrator is to feel the pulse of the staff as well as the students.

The objective of the College is to ensure that the students are provided with academic training of a high quality, so that they are equipped with the skill sets required in today's professional sphere. Though the focus of the College is primarily on the development of the intellectual potential, we also stress upon the need to develop all round faculties of the students including promotion of extracurricular, cultural and sporting abilities. This College also acts as the negotiator of transmission of values and beliefs amongst the students.

After the initial footstep in the arena of higher education in 1879, Bethune College has successfully passed a period of 135 years. This College is a Government institute and is guided by the existing Government rules andregulations. In spite of adversities on several occasions the Institute maintains its firmness to guide its learners from all sections of the society. Bethune College thrives in quality, upholds clarity in vision, mission, values and goals with positive thoughts.

Basically as a teacher of Bengali, I joined the WB Education Service in 1988 and later in 2010, I was further recruited as the Professor of Bengali in WB Senior Education Service cadre. Since 31st December 2011 afternoon, I have been appointed to shoulder the responsibilities of the Principal of this glorious Bethune College.
