Aims and Objectives:
The logo of J.K. College, Purulia is ‘ShraddhabanLavateGnyanam’ meaning ‘those who are full of respect and humanity can alone achieve true wisdom’. The pursuit of knowledge, theoretical and practical, technical and spiritual, is meant for the full efflorescence of the personality. We believe in the ethos of Swami Vivekananda that education is manifestation of the perfection already in man. We believe in quality, and we emphasize the importance of value-based education with an aim of enabling our students not just to became competitive in a worldly way, but also to make them responsive to and responsible enough for this global village. Our institutional mission is not merely to provide cloistered knowledge within the four walls, but to produce efficient and sensible citizens of the future who can adapt and acclimatize themselves to the constantly changing social realities.
We are happy with what we achieved, but there is no scope for complacence. We strive with the insatiable spirit of Ulysses for knowledge not yet acquired, and vistas not yet opened. We are always aware of the unbridgeable gap between dreams and realities. The pursuit, therefore, will be relentless.
