Kalna College was set up in the year 1943, when India’s struggle for independence was gaining its momentum and the people of the country were trying hard to break the shackles of ignorance, superstitions and barren social customs. At this opportune moment of history Kalna College started its journey with a beacon light of awakening and knowledge. The goal of the College is to impart quality education and disseminate diverse knowledge among thousands of learners of an agrarian and comparatively thriving region of Kalna Subdivision and its adjoining areas. The motto embodied in its emblem is “GyanatParatarang Na Hi”, i.e., There is nothing greater than knowledge. The College which started with only 46 students at a rented building has at present nearly 6500 students in its different departments including B.Ed. section.
In the beginning the College was affiliated to the University of Calcutta. Then after the establishment of the University of Burdwan, its affiliation was shifted to the newly established University of Burdwan in the year 1962. And since then it has naturally been following the curriculum prepared by the parent University. Some senior teachers of the College are members of the Board of Studies. They present their valuable opinion and give important suggestions during the framing of the curriculum. When a new syllabus is introduced, the University organizes workshops where the various aspects of the syllabus as well as the modus operandi are discussed. The Board of Studies held several meetings to frame the guidelines of the new curriculum. Subject wise workshops were held in the University and at several colleges to discuss the modalities regarding the effective delivery of the curriculum. Many teachers of our College participated in those workshops and gave their opinion on the basis of which some items were incorporated in the syllabus and some were excluded from it and some were modified.
For the effective handling of the curriculum the teachers of our College attend Orientation Programmes and Refreshers Courses, Winter & Summer Schools and present papers at the parent University and sometimes at other Universities. They participate in National and International Seminars and workshops to equip themselves for effective teaching. Before the commencement of a new session the College takes necessary steps to provide sufficient faculty to ensure fruitful implementation of the curriculum. Each Department organizes departmental discussions to break up the syllabus into several modules and assigns definite portions to different faculties. The Departments which have shortage of faculty place requisition to the Principal for recruiting Full time/Part time/Guest Lecturers. Accordingly required member of faculties are appointed for effective completion of the curriculum in time. The syllabus prepared by the University has sufficient scope for academic flexibility with an inter-disciplinary approach. This course pattern obviously ensures the desired balance between the theoretical and vocational aspects of learning. Each of the above mentioned courses offers a wide range of subjects enabling the learners to select their options according to their knack and ability. The artificial boundary between the different streams has thus been demolished. The Academic sub-committee of the college prepares the academic calendar well ahead of the new session. The Routine sub- committee comprising members from each of the streams prepares the class routine keeping in view the number of working days and the availability of classrooms. In the class routine theoretical and practical classes are so arranged as to give students enough scope for creative thinking and profitable learning. Tutorial classes are held regularly to give the learners the first-hand knowledge of tackling difficult situations in the examination. Remedial classes are held to deliver the curriculum effectively to the slow learners and to those coming from backward communities.

Almost all members of the Teachers’ Council either as member of the Governing Body or as memberof the twenty-four different sub-committees, participate in implementing the decisions which clearly satisfy the condition of decentralized participatory management.As per directive of the CBCS syllabus framed by the affiliating University, there is provision for mid-term internal assessment in each subject. A small examination team headed by the Principal as supervisor, two teachers as Assistant supervisors, and a few non-teaching personnel as supporting staff of the said team, is framed. For every semester, there is a new team which actually monitors the entire internal examination of that particular semester, and the assessment of answer scripts and tabulation of marks are also done by the respective departments in a decentralized manner.
The heads of each department work in consultation with their respective faculty members. A central Routine Committee is constituted in the Teachers’ Council meeting at the beginning of every academic session. After getting the central routine, preparation of departmental routine, distribution of syllabus with proper manning, preparation of syllabus modules, requirement of guest faculty, purchase of new books and equipments, and upgradation of laboratories are implemented.
Twenty-four different sub committees help in drawing out the plans pertaining to admission, examination, Students’Council constitution, fixing outreach programmes of the NCCandNSS units, games and sports schedule, preparation of Master routine and Academic calendar, preparation work of Leave Register and P.F ledger, Data processing work for IQAC and AQAR and so on.The Secretary of the Teachers’ Council and the Coordinator, IQAC, act as the medium of negotiation between the Principal and faculty members of the College.The Students’Union plays an important role by communicating urgent information for the students through social media. They also assist the general students during online form fill-up process and help the authorities by collecting requisite data and providing necessary feedback on student-related issues.
Apart from performance in respective committees, every year, during the admission of the first semester general course students, and the first semester B.Ed. course students, almost all the faculty members are involved in verifying and processing the online uploaded data of the applicants. They also follow the software generated merit list at the time of admission meticulously, sothat the admissions are conducted systematically and without errors.
Each year, our students participate in the DPI and University organised cultural competitions and sports. The students of our NCC unit regularly participate in the programmes of national commemoration days and events organised by the Sub Divisional Office. NSS volunteers of our collegefrequently organise health and environment related awareness programmes. The college IQAC guides the faculties to organise seminars, conferences, workshops and excursions as well as inspire them to represent the College in academic events organised by other institutions in India.This detailed narration clearly shows that a participatory management certainly exists in theinstitution, otherwise, such large numbers of events can never be held smoothly.
• Planning of Syllabus
Each Department organizes departmental discussions to break up the syllabus into several modules and assigns definite portions to different faculties.
• Analysis of syllabus and routine preparation:
The Academic sub-committee of the college prepares the academic calendar well ahead of the new session. The Routine sub-committee comprising of members from each of the streams prepares the class routine keeping in view the number of working days and the availability of classrooms in order to give students enough scope for creative thinking and profitable learning.
• Regular conduction of tutorial classes:
Tutorial classes are held regularly to give the learners the first-hand knowledge of tackling difficult situations in the examination.
• Conduction of Examinations:
Class tests, Internal assessment and Final Semester Examinations are held regularly as per predesigned schedule following the academic calendar of Burdwan University.
The Academic sub-committee of the college prepares the academic calendar well ahead of the new session. The Routine sub- committee comprising members from each of the streams prepares the master routine keeping in view the number of working days and the availability of classrooms. In the class routine theoretical and practical classes are so arranged as to give students enough scope for creative thinking and profitable learning. Tutorial classes are held regularly to give the learners the first-hand knowledge of tackling difficult situations in the examination. With the onset of lockdown throughout the nation, the IQAC had initiated a uniform online platform to take online classes. The College had purchased paid version user system from G-Suit to enable the conduction of online classes on a daily basis for all departments following a pre-set routine and the records of the classes were linked with Google calendar assigned to the admin to record the classes.
At the beginning of the session the teachers provide and explain the contents of the syllabus to the students along with the pre-assigned schedule of the test examinations. Everyday performance of a student is assessed by asking short questions from the previous day’s lecture. After completing a few topics from the syllabus, students are given assignments. This is to check the writing skill of each student. Projects are prepared by students on selected topics from the syllabus. Class tests are taken in the form of short as well as descriptive questions. The corrected answer scripts are given back to the students. For practical based subjects excursions and field reports are guided by the concerned faculty of the Department. Mock practical examinations are also conducted for the Honours students. In addition to the above, as per the guidelines of the University Internal assessments are conducted separately for students of all the semesters before each subsequent final exam. Under the circumstances of lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was instructed by the University of Burdwan, following the order of Higher Education department to arrange online exams for the final semester students. The college had arranged a well-managed system to conduct online exams of about 1400 final year students, most of which are belonging to rural area, within in a very short time. The online evaluation of answer scripts of the final year students was also successfully done well in advance through pre planned guidelines adapted by the College in collaboration with IQAC.
Like other general degree colleges, Kalna College has also minimum scope of doing research along with under graduate education, due to several hurdles and constraints. In spite of that, college has constituted a research committee to promote and pursue the research work as far as practicable. College IQAC, Teachers’ Council and Principal himself encourage the teachers to undertake the research project who are yet to pursue the Ph. D. to register forth with or to insists the Ph. D. awarded teachers to carry out the inter and intra departmental collaborative research work for academic excellence and also for their Career Advancement Scheme (CAS) benefit. IQAC and research committee always asked the principal investigator to submit research progress report. Not only the college always collected the report but also provide full support in terms of infrastructure, financial autonomy, speedy release of fund, essential extra ordinary leave etc., if it is sanctioned by the sponsoring agency. On account of this vigilant roll of IQAC, the number of publications of research paper has become increased to 39 (2020-2021) is worth mentioning. Moreover, the College organized a One month Summer School on Mathematics in collaboration with Indian Mathematics Consortium, a Seven day workshop on Technopedagogy and Research Methodology in collaboration with other institutions and several Webinars on online platform.
There are three campuses in Kalna College namely (1) The Main Campus (3.60 acres) built up area 6,985 sq. m.

The Governing Body plays a pivotal role in framing the strategies pertaining to the various aspects of the college administration, academic and general development. Principal in close coordination with Governing Body, IQAC and the Teacher’s Council ensures the active implementation of the policies, plans and development framed therein. Teacher’s Council in presence of Principal chalk out the entire teaching–learning and evaluation strategies of a particular year at the beginning of the session. IQAC meet at regular intervals to monitor and implement the quality strategy of the institution. Twenty-four different sub committees help in drawing out the plans pertaining to admission, examination, students’ council constitution, fixing outreach programme of NCC and NSS, Games and sports schedule, preparation of Master routine and Academic calendar etc. There are few supporting staff almost in all these committees for collection and preservation of documents and records. Teachers’ qualities are improved by participating and/or arranging the Refresher Course, Orientation Programme, Academic Seminars and Workshops. Similarly, the qualities of non-teaching staff are improved by conducting technical workshops and instrument demonstration. Students’ union plays an important role by communicating urgent notice for students through social media. They also assist the general students during on line form fill-up process and help the authority by providing feedback and collecting information.
Industry Interaction / Collaboration To establish and extend this facility college is linked with the Industry Institute Partnership Cell of Burdwan University.

However, during htis academic session, due to Covid induced pandemic, the collaborative activities of the institution has been postponed.

Principal-in-charge brings all recommendations of the External Auditor to the Governing Body for ratifications and implementation. In this way audit process is completed and submitted to HED.
College has a traditional practice to deposit a portion of the income over the expenditure amount in a fixed deposit account.

College has two ponds of its own, one of which is situated inside the main campus of the College and the other is outside of the hostel campus. These ponds are yearly leased for earning some revenue. College has also constructed 37 nos. of stalls to prevent the encroachment along a portion of boundary wall and by dint of it a onetime fund of Rs 20, 00,000/- is generated. The same has been saved under fixed deposit scheme which provides an annual interest of Rs 1, 00,000/- approximately. Besides, these stalls generate annual revenue of Rs 40,000 only in the form of rent. A portion of the unused teachers’ quarter has been provided to the WEBEL INFORMATICS for running computer application courses on rents basis. This also generates a fund of Rs 50,000/- Yearly.
