Cotton College, which is one of the best educational institutions in the North-eastern region of the country, considers it to be its duty to serve and strengthen the society of which it is a part. In addition to providing the students the state-of-the art equipment and specialized knowledge in the subjects of their choice, the college has always been trying to inculcate in them a sense of social responsibility. Equipped with the active, young and bright human resource, the college has constituted a “Social Responsibility Cell” with representatives from the faculty, staff and students.

The goals of the cell are to

  • prepare the students to contribute positively to the community,
  • promote human values,
  • disseminate knowledge for the benefit of the society and the environment,
  • work for the underprivileged section.

Different forums like Women’s’ Forum, Eco Club, Heritage Club, NCC, NSS, Photography Club carry out their various activities under the banner of Cotton College Social Responsibility Cell.

The cell organizes a number of outreach activities, such as conducting awareness camps, offering counseling and remedial teaching for the weaker students, providing financial support to students working on current issues, supplying educational stationeries to schools in the remote and tribal dominated areas, providing relief during natural disasters, etc. The cell has established tie-ups with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working in the areas of conservation of environment, eco restoration, etc. to enable the interested members to undertake joint programmes.
