About Vesaja Patel College, Sundergarh
The Vesaja Patel College, Hemgir (Duduka) Sundargarh was established in the year 1982 and has been named after the great philanthropist Sri Vesaja Patel of village Kundukela. The college is situated on the bank of river ‘Basundhara’, a place of scenic beauty, surrounded with hills, mountains, dense forest and thirty five kilometers from the district headquarters. The college is to provide an excellent opportunity for the expression of thought and ideas for their young students.
The college has an intake capacity of 1216 numbers of students (affiliated strength). Most of the students belong to the tribal community and they come from the nearby villages. The Hemgir block is dominated by tribal and minorities. The financial background and back bone of the students is not at all sound. So they prefer and opt for taking admission in the college and thereby the strength of the institution is sizable. The college has a salubrious climatic condition and since the college is situated far away from the din and bustle of the town life, it provides a congenial atmosphere for perfect learning.
The staff position of the college is 63 (38-teaching, 25-non-teaching). The faculty members (teaching) are devoted, dedicated, affable, duty bound and they concentrate on academic excellence. They imbibe the students to be industrious, studious and cultured. The college imparts teaching in subjects like Geology and I.T. which happen to be a rare discipline. Such a subject helps the students to pursue their future profession because the district has plenty of coal reserves and other minerals.
