Kamalanagar College at Chawngte, Mizoram is a co-educational institution with English as its medium of instruction. It is established in a rural setting bordering Bangladesh and inhabited by the scheduled tribes only. It is a deficit college financed by the Govt. of Mizoram and affiliated (permanent) to Mizoram University, Mizoram. The College is also recognized by the UGC under section 2 (f) and 12 (B) of the UGC Act, 1956. The College is still in its infancy (established in 1992) and is perhaps the only college established in a Chakma inhabited area in India. The College has as many 30 motivated and qualified faculties with eight departments offering three year degree course in Arts. Although the College has potential students but due to want of infrastructures, poor communication and information inflow and lack of teaching learning aids the College could not create an academic atmosphere and provide learning experiences to its student’s worth of having in higher education. Under above circumstances it is proposed to arrange a gathering of scholars and academicians in the College and discussing some issues of national as well as of local importance, an experience which every student of higher studies has the right to have.
Besides, the College is also preparing for its self assessment towards NAAC accreditation. The proposed exercise is quality enhancer and credit earning activity for acquiring better accreditation for the College. A National Seminar is thus worth organizing in this remote rural college and an institution like UGC is well expected and known for sponsoring such activity.
