Institutional Distinctiveness      

          Govt Degree College Bijbehara is an intitute with a vision “strive to produce competent human resource for various sectors through effective teaching learning and development” and Mission “strive towards providing quality education in various branches of knowledge for creating an integrated social fabric and strive to develop better moral values among the youth aimed at building a strong and viable society through effective involvement of the stakeholders” since with limited resources and facilities the college is struggling to achieve its goal. With the passage of time at this point we feel that the college has been successful in realizing its mission to a considerable extent. Starting in 2006-2007 with a rather meagreenrolment of just 41 students which has now gone above 3000. The Students enrolled in this belong to families of first generation learners. Our institution is committed to impart quality education to students so as to foster their development by providing knowledge and skill to enable them to face the global challenges. The college offers various programmes under Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. Our focus is to serve students of different backgrounds and abilities, through effective teachinglearning pedagogy. The interactive and participative, information and communication technique (ICT) based approaches have been used. Studentsare given the wide option for choosing elective papers that address cross-cutting issues. Workshops for Students are organized on regular basis to provide them additional knowledge/information thereby widening their horizon. The Industrial visits, field/study trips are conducted to give exposure to our students. The Guest Lectures, Presentations and Exhibitions are organized on topics encompassing GST, e-banking, International Migration, Insurance, Jammu and Kashmir economy etc. The Students are encouraged by providing proper guidance to participate in Intra and Inter-collegiate co-curricular/extracurricular activities enablingthem to enrich their knowledge. The Students are provided ample opportunities to participate in Sports events for their overall development. The Students’ Council is functional to provide a platform to our students to showcase their talent in various fields. The N.S.S. unit has conducted a number of extension and outreach activities like SwachhtaAbhiyan, SwachhtaPakhweda, Blood Donation Camps, Consumer Awareness Programmes and e-payments workshops whichhelp the students to inculcate social responsibilities and values in order to transform them in to good citizens. Moreover, keeping in mind the surrounding areas being hot beds of Cannabis (Bhang) cultivation which is sometimes referred as “Bhang Bowl of Anantnag”, special awareness drug de-addiction programmes are organized so as to keep students at bay from indulging in this immoral practice which has far reaching evil consequences on the society in general and the addicts in particular.
