It is a rare privilege for me to work as the principal of this college named after the great social worker, reformer, political activist, journalist, essayist and poet like Utkalmani Gopabandhu Das. Although established in a rural area, like Khamar, it has been providing opportunities of higher education to the students who never had dreamt of higher study in their life.I am committed to the task of bringing about all round development of this institution. I am well aware of the significant role played by the teachers and academicians and the purpose of education and hence, trying to focus on several issues relating to both academic and co-curricular activities of this institution. These provide me with a sense of accomplishment while discharging the responsibility of the principal of this college. On this occasion I seek whole hearted cooperation of the students and both teaching and non -teaching staff. I hope, they will work hard for fulfilling the goals set by the founders of this institution and the people of this locality.
