Welcome to Sitalkuchi College. We always feel elated to making relationship with you as you venture to take part in our academic programmes. We are here to offer you Under Graduate Honours and Programme Courses in Arts subjects under the affiliation of Cooch Behar Panchanan Barma University. We are also engaged in providing opportunities of an extended campus life through the Distance Learning Programmes under Netaji Subhas Open University and the Directorate of Distance Education, Rabindra Bharati University for interested students of the surrounding region. Being located in one of the remote Community Development Blocks of Cooch Behar district, it is true that we do not fall within the category of the so called elite colleges of the District as well as the state of West Bengal, yet we are committed to creating an environment of unlimited opportunities of teaching, learning, exploring, sharing and engaging together.
Our academic journey has already crossed the milestone of 20 years. Over these two decades we have become the proud mentor of a few silver and gold medalists of the University. Many of our students have been successful in competing at all India level academic institutions for pursuing higher studies. Some of our students have also bagged prestigious Research Fellowships and have made us feel proud for securing Assistant Professorship and other jobs in state and central government sectors. Our team of young professors indulge in hard work for churning the best effort out of the first generation learners of the institution. For these students we work together to promote an engaging and enthusiastic campus climate. The core values of Accountability, Respect for Differences, Austerity, Social Responsibility and inclusiveness allow us to grasp our dream of making a safe and healthy learning environment for all.
We are confident enough that those who can confide in our abilities will not be deprived, provided they also cooperate with us. Looking forward for being united with you all.
A lot of thanks,
Team Sitalkuchi College

The mission of Sitalkuchi College is to provide quality under graduate education to the students of a remote, rural, backward area along Indo-Bangladesh border of Sitalkuchi and Sitai community development blocks of Cooch Behar district. The college is contributing to the development of the area in which it is embedded by preparing the young minds for imbibing knowledge, skills and sensitivity. Anchored by the values of excellence, accountability, respect for differences, social responsibility, fellow feeling and austerity, the college fosters its students to pursue self fulfilment and contribute meaningfully to the local as well as the larger society after completion of their studies.
To fulfill the mission and materialise the vision of the college, it is guided by some core values. The College endorses these values as: Excellence, Accountability, Respect for Differences, Social Responsibility, Fellow Feeling and Austerity.
Sitalkuchi College was established in the year 1999, with the aim of providing the scope for higher education to the aspiring students of the remote areas of Sitalkuchi and Sitai Community Development Blocks of the District of Cooch Behar. With this aim in mind, the college came into being mainly with the enthusiasm of the local educationists, committed social workers and other patronisers of the Sitalkuchi- Sitai region. From 1st September, 1999, the academic activities of the college were started in a one storied school building near Sitalkuchi Hospital. Then on 26th October, 2006, the college was shifted to its own premises. It is twenty-two Kilometers away from Panchanan More, Mathabhanga, and is located on the left side of the Sitai-Sitalkuchi Road (ODR) toward Sitai one Kilometer on the East from Sitalkuchi. The college having a campus area of 3.33 acres of land, a big playground on the opposite side of the PWD Road, now functions from a three winged three -storied building. As the college is socially committed to upgrade its academic mission infra-structural construction work is still going on.
The College is committed to providing the best possible education to the students. It fosters and nourishes the strength and talent of all the in-house stake holders of the institution, so that they can be the Best and can give the Best. The college promotes an informative, academic environment for all its members to achieve the highest standard in their respective activities.
The College upholds the principle of accountability in preparing the teachers, staff and providing services to the students. Responsibility, honesty and transparency form the base of this value. For maintaining accountability all are incited to accept responsibility and be accountable. Responsible decision making and conflict resolution are encouraged and dignity of the concerned person is highly respected.
The College promotes the value of social responsibility through engaged academic activities as well as community service. The idea of responsible citizenship is fostered by providing opportunities of environmental awareness, equal opportunity to all and gender sensitivity. As an academic institution activity of the college is committed to work together and make progress.
The College strongly believes in producing a healthy academic and corporate life within the institution by following the principle of fellow feeling, mutual kindness, the sense of common duties. The only way to avoid the growth of any conflict of interest, it is absolutely necessary to build up a sense of mutual empathy among the students, teachers and staff. We promote love for all and hatred for none.
The College is committed to the value of austerity as against the prevailing dominant value of consumerism. This institutional value is inculcated among the students, teachers and staff. We foster austerity but rely on dexterity. The College feels sure that the value of austerity could lead to achieve the goal of sustainability in the long run.
The corporate life of the college is guided by these values. However, as in all cases the realisation of these values requires continuous cultivation. The college is committed to such kind of nourishment always.
