From The Director's Desk
Since UGC-Academic Staff College, University of Calcutta, began its journey on October 08, 1990, it has persistently engaged itself in organizing increasing number of Orientation Programs, Refresher Courses, seminars and Workshops with the objectives of helping the teachers discharge their professional commitments more effectively. Our functions have got a new dimension in the wake of the decision to make participation in these programs mandatory for the purpose of career advancement of teachers.
In the span of 20 years this Academic Staff College has identified itself as one of the best Academic Staff Colleges of the country through its diversified activities. It is indeed a mater of pride that during 11th plan period among all the Academic Staff College’s all over India our Academic Staff College has been ranked second by the UGC within the parameter of ‘cost effectiveness’ and third in the terms of ‘quality of programme’ and ‘level of participation’.
In future also we hope to cater to the needs of enhancement and sustenance of quality of higher education by way of organizing RCs, OPs, Seminars etc. I wish our ASC’s long survival for the interest of the nation.
