The Principal's Desk
Dr. Srabanti Bhattacharya, Principal
It is my great honour and privilege to welcome you to Rani Birla Girls' College, a renowned institution of higher education of Kolkata, affiliated to the University of Calcutta. Rani Birla Girls' College is an under-graduate degree college, which was established in 1961, by the Hindustan Charity Trust in the memory of Rani Jogeshwari Devi Birla. Though established as a private college under the aegis of a private trust, the college came under the administration of the Department of Higher Education, Government of West Bengal, in the year 1997 and is presently functioning as a Government-Aided degree college.
The college was established with a goal of empowerment of women through value-based holistic education. The College has strived to provide a student friendly,
affordable, curriculum-based education and co-curricular opportunities to all its pupil. For the past six decades, the institution has persistently worked towards its goal of spreading higher education to the young women of Kolkata with a large section coming from the minority community, encouraging them to participate in various academic and allied pursuits, to keep pace with the rapid social and academic changes congruous with the times. The college aims to empower its students to cope with the myriad challenges of modern society and encourages them to become mature and responsible citizens of the future.
I assure you that your years in Rani Birla Girls' College, will nurture you to academic excellence and open your hearts and minds in pursuit of true knowledge, which does not end with earning of a university degree. I hope, that at the end of your journey with us you will realise that "the highest education is that which does not merely give us information but marks our life in harmony with all existence" (Rabindranath Tagore)
Best Wishes for an enriching and productive college life.
