Rangia College is the premier institution of higher education on the north bank of the Brahmaputra in the district of Kamrup. Founded on August 5, 1963, the college has rendered pioneering services to the community by catering to the needs of the vast and extensive area inhabited predominantly by socially and economically backward segments of the population. Rangia College has been serving the socio-educational needs of the entire North Kamrup area which is primarily a rural base.
Despite a humble beginning through the sincere efforts and dedication of a handful of local educational entrepreneurs, the college has now become a full-fledged institution with three streams (Arts, Science and Commerce). The Golden Jubilee Year of its establishment was celebrated on August 5, 2013. During the course of five decades, it has produced a good number of graduates who are now serving in different areas of social responsibility.
The human resource produced by this institution has been able to establish the college as a reputed academic institution in spite of its rural environment. This is sufficiently established by the NAAC accreditation of the college at grade B++ in 2004 and subsequently re-accreditation as B Grade (2.80 score on four point scale) in 2010. However, the college community strongly believes that there is a lot more to be done to promote the academic excellence of the college, particularly in the perview of the changing challenges in the field of Higher Education.
Our vision is to transform this institution of semi- rural base into a Centre of Excellence in a decade’s time by elevating its academic status through introduction of career- oriented courses. We also aim to introduce PG courses in select subjects in order to make Higher education accessible to students of remote arrears.
