An Introduction

Savitri Girls’ College was established on September 14, 1972 by Savitri Educational Charitable Trust. Late H. K. Jhajharia and M. L. Jalan became the Secretary and President of the College after its inception in 1972.

The purpose of the institution is to empower women through education and other developmental activities. To this end we try to devise a wide range of interesting and fruitful programmes which would in turn promote an atmosphere of intellectual alertness and good moral health. We aim to empower girls who come to us from less fortunate and privileged backgrounds so that they may recognise their potential and work towards becoming responsible citizens of the country. In the context of a globalised world, we try to prepare the students keeping the larger picture of their ambitions and functions once they leave the institution to take up employment outside. The college conducts through the various cells, societies, and especially the N.S.S, several programmes that may together give a holistic and comprehensive education to the student.

The College has been accredited in the year 2006 by the National Assessment & Accreditation Council (NAAC) and reaccredited by NAAC in the year 2014 with a B Grade.

Our Vision & Mission

The college was established to impart female education at the degree level in the Burrabazar area. The core purpose of the college is to impart a holistic education designed within the limitations imposed by our status as an affiliated college. The students of our college come mainly from socially and economically underprivileged backgrounds; most of them are first-generation learners. Hence we believe that the teaching-learning process takes the greatest precedence, and our efforts are oriented towards not only ensuring good academic results but also inculcating a sense of moral responsibility, social conscience and aesthetic sensibility. Furthermore, the college encourages an atmosphere of independent research among the teachers, and as far as practicable, among the students as well. The Principal is directly involved in the discussion and formation of goals and approaches. The Principal and top management understands the absolute necessity not just of proper and equal delegation of authority but also the crucial requirement of complete involvement of the various stakeholders and officials (teaching and non-teaching). The resultant democratization and systemization of the administrative and leadership process in turn enhances the quality of the core processes of the institution.
