Motto and Mission
The motto of BNC is Vidya Shakti Samasthanam which means the Spiritual Seat of the Power of Education . BNC s mission is to inculcate academic excellence, in a motivating learning environment with the right amount of extra curricular activities.

BNC is committed to not only inspiring and enabling the students to achieve academic excellence for pursuing higher education but also preparing them for a wide variety of employment and self-employment opportunities.

BNC, a college dedicated to transform the lives of girl students is fittingly named after Bhagini Nivedita. Sister Nivedita s childhood name was Margaret Elizabeth Noble. She was born in Ireland on October 20, 1867 to parents Mary Isabel and Samuel Richmond Noble. Her father was a preacher to whom religion meant service to the poor. This had an imprint on Nivedita. She was intelligent and hard working, loved music, art, and the natural sciences. After her education, she spent ten years in teaching, from 1884 to 1894. She not only imparted knowledge but also inspired her students. She met Swami Vivekanand in England in 1895. She responded to Swami Vivekanand s call to help the women of India.

She left England and arrived in Kolkatta on January 28, 1898 and became his disciple about two months later. Swami Vivekanand gave her the name Nivedita , meaning one who is dedicated to God. She studied Gita and practiced meditation. She lived a simple and holy life and worked for the welfare of the people.

She made India the object of love and worship. When Swami Vivekananda passed away on July 4. 1902, she felt an added responsibility towards the people of India. She inspired the people in all walks of life through her lectures and writings. She always believed that India could not be great and powerful unless there was unity. She emphasized this in every possible way and was never tired of speaking about it. Her hard work and lack of rest was having an adverse effect on her health. She passed away on October 13, 1911.
