Purpose Of Education
Education would fail ignominiously in its objective, if it manufactured only a robot and called him an economic man accenting the adjective 'economic' and forgetting the substantive 'man'.A university cannot afford to ignore the culture aspects, of education,
what ever studies is specializes in Science is a means, not an end, whereas culture is an end in itself Even through you may ultimately become a computer -programmer, a scientist, a doctor, or an engineer, a teacher or a lawyer; you must while in college, absorb fundamental values which make you a man of culture. An engineer has not merely to build bridge; he has to we a devoted husband, a kind father, a friendly neighbour a dutiful citizen, and a man true himself He will have trials and tribulations; his heart will fit at times; he will then need the spiritual strength which true culture alone can give. We aim to achieve a holistic development of personality through education, which is, in the view of Swami Vivekanand College, both modern and traditional.
