The foundation stone of University College, Chunni Kalan was laid down by the village panchayat in the area of 14 acres on 27 February, 2010. The words encrypted on the stone describes that the punjab government arranges 8 Crore for the building of the college. In Punjab, there are near about 15 constituent colleges. From these 15 colleges, Punjabi University, Patiala is managing 10 colleges. The local students, take this college as a boon. Under the 11th five year plan of Government of India, Punjab Government established model degree colleges in educationally backward areas. This plan was developed by UGC. Punjabi University, Patiala established its constituent college at Chunni Kalan, Fatehgarh Sahib. For the overall development of the students, college started its first academic session in 2011. With the hard work of capable teaching & non-teaching staff, University College, Chunni Kalan has successfully completed its 6th academic session (2016-17) & going to enter in its 7th session (2017-18).
University College, Chunni Kalan is spread over an area of 14 acre. There are 3 blocks-Science, cum-administrative block, Humanities block & IT block with ventilated rooms. There are full fledged physics & chemistry labs, two computer labs with 35 computers.
There is a large seminar hall, which is used for academic & cultural activities. Playgrounds are made according to the campus planing. Under the supervision of the teachers, various games are organised for the students. Books, newspapers, academic magazines and other general knowledge material is available for the students.
At the present time, privatization and commercialization of education has made it unapproachable for poor people. University College, Chunni Kalan, provides cheap and quality education to the students. The fee structure of various courses is very nominal, So that poor students could attain education and full fill their dreams.
Attaining Higher Education, has become not only high priced in the scenario of Globalisation and commercialisation, but it also lost its valuable standards. Keeping this in mind, constituent colleges affiliated to Punjabi University, Patiala in rural areas has lowerd down the economic burden of poverty stricken community.
University College, Chunni Kalan has become a boon for the literacy of Girls & also to maintain its set standards. Away from hussle bussle green lush area & Pollution free clean environment of University college, Chunni Kalan, gives you a view of a Shanti Niketan.
For the overall development of the students, college organises curricular and co-curricular activities. Students secured various positions in Zonal & Inter-Zonal competitions.
On 26th January, 2017 Harbans Singh of class B.A. participated in Republic Day parade, at New Delhi. College organises workshops, seminar, quiz, power point presentations, movie making, debate etc. for the academic developments of the students. The faculty of Social Sciences organises national seminar every year & the punjabi department organises national seminar, world language day, kavi darbar, symposium & introduction to famous writer.
Various committees are been set up for curricular and co-curricular activities.
So, participation of the students in academic, literary, musical & cultural activities plays an important role in their personality development. I hope that the college, with its industrious staff & support of the local residents is always working for the construction of healthy society.
Best wishes for students, staff and local residents.
