Strategic Plan

Strategic Planning of Plassey College for 2030

What is Strategic Planning?

The Strategic planning is conceptualized to be a blueprint for transforming the vision and mission of the College into discernible and objective realities. It essentially envisions the institutional decisions and actions that shape and guide what an institution is? What it does? and why it does so? This document acts as a fulcrum for calibrated and smooth functioning of the college on a day to day basis to ultimately meet its future goals.

The Strategic Planning of Plassey College

Plassey College was established in the year 2010. It is a government aided general degree college which used to offer two programs: B.A (Hons) and B.A (General). However, after the introduction of National Education Policy (NEP-2020), the distinction between Honours and General programs is getting renamed as Major and Minor courses. After the completion of one decade of its existence, the colleges undertakes a heady campaign to get itself NAAC accredited for the 1st Cycle. Since the college is poised to face NAAC, it endeavors painstakingly to equip itself for the upcoming assessment. Keeping this in mind, Strategic Plan of the college sets out a framework of priorities for the College, its divisions and departments. It is a first step in achieving the college objectives and is underpinned by more detailed implementation plans at the Committee levels.

The Principal, who is the Administrative Head of the College, provides leadership in framing plans and policies and also endeavors to implement them under the guidance of Governing Body of the college. Further, the Principal also acts as the Drawing and Disbursing officer (DDO) of the institution and looks into the financial matters of the College. Premeditated Strategic plans as narrated below will be deployed systematically as warranted by Institutional demand. The Principal and the IQAC Coordinator along with other members of the IQAC held numerous brainstorming sessions in this context and several action plans were formulated. Finally, the Strategic Plan was finalized and mentioned underneath.

The IQAC has been charged with oversight of the strategic plan. Meeting regularly, the committee will ensure the plan is implemented and that appropriate institutional resources are allocated to accomplish the mission level priorities.

At the same time it is also realized that the IQAC will primarily have a supervisory role. Many of the strategies outlined below fall within the domains of already existing Institutional Committees.
