PRINCIPAL’S Succession Board
“Atmano Moksharrtham Jagadhitaya Cha”
For one’s own salvation, and for the welfare of the world
We want that education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded, and by which one can stand on one's own feet.
– Swami Vivekananda
Ram Jaipal College holds a pre-eminent position in Chapra among the Jai Prakash University, Chapra constituent Colleges. Widely preferred over Chapra colleges, students are eager to join Ram Jaipal College to shape their dreams and aspirations in a safe and healthy environment. Ably guided by a dynamic and well-qualified faculty, they learn to strive for the best. The aim is to create responsive and responsible young adults, capable of dealing with challenges thrown up by society.
The purpose of higher education is to encourage and develop finer minds and sensibilities by exploring one’s limitless potential. It must aim to construct meaningful edifices on the solid foundations and aspire to create individuals aware of themselves and mindful of their social responsibility. Educators in higher learning thus have a dual responsibility – they must not only have a vision undreamt of earlier, but be able to communicate it to their pupils while helping them to remain firmly rooted to the soil of the country.
The process of self-assessment for an institution, as for an individual, is an arduous but fulfilling one. It serves both to initiate a process of introspection and to envision one’s future. In line with the objectives of NAAC, encourage self-evaluation and enrichment, the process of filling the Self-Study Report led us to a better understanding of ourselves, our environment and our place in this environment. Collating this information itself has proved to be an enormous learning experience that has made us aware of our strengths and weaknesses and given an impetus to aspire to strive for excellence in every field. The exercise reminded us of the reasons that this institution was born, and filled us with gratitude towards the founding members, principal and staff that nurtured the nascent institution through its formative years to establish it as a renowned centre of learning. It imbues us – the present members of the institution – with a heavy responsibility: to cherish the legacy bestowed upon us and to carry it to greater heights.
The NAAC Steering Committee formed for the purpose of preparing this report held several meetings with faculty members in various departments and those working in the various committees of the college. The college administrative office provided information and data to corroborate the vision of the various societies and activities of the college. The effort was to evolve a holistic understanding of the multifarious college activities – both academic and extra-curricular. This integrated approach enabled a better assessment and evaluation of the performance of the institution.
We take pride in all that we have achieved and vow to do better in other areas. The self-study report has set a benchmark that will be breached time and again in the coming years.
I believe in the principle of participative management, where every member of the institute from menial staff to top management contributes their mite for the development of the institution. This ‘Self Study Report’ is the result of the perseverant grit and passion of the teaching and non-teaching staff of the college, who worked day and night. I extend my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all the teaching, non-teaching and administrative staff of this college who contributed in the preparation of this SSR. I specially congratulate Dr. Ram Prasad Yadav, Coordinator NAAC Steering Committee and Dr. Gunsagar Yadav, Bursar for their untiring, dedicated and sincere efforts.
Hope we shall have the pleasure of hearing soon from you on your decision on Peer Team Visit for Observation.
