Nowgong Girls' College

Institutional distinctiveness

NowgongGirls’s College is the pioneer institution of women education in central Assam. Since its inception in 1962, the college has been rendering yeomen service to the society through its tireless efforts of educating the girls and womenfolk. The journey of this institute began at a time when most of the women were deprived of their legitimate rights to education in the conservative patriarchal society. The need of an institution exclusively for women was deeply felt by a few farsighted luminaries leading to the establishment of this institution. Generations of girls and women are being educated by this institute over the years and thereby it has contributed towards the empowerment of women in the society.

The institution caters to the educational needs of the students mostly of the districts of Nagaon, KarbiAnglong, DimaHasao, Hojai, Morigaon and others. Both KarbiAnglong and DimaHasaoare two tribal and hill districts under the Sixth Schedule of Indian constitution and Morigaon is a backward district as identified by the govt. of India. Education of girls is a challenge in these socially and ecomically backward districts and Nowgong Girls’ College has been trying its best to provide access to quality education to the girl students of these remote areas. A large number of students of the institution belong to Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribes, other Backward Classes and Minorities Communities and Economically disadvantaged section of the society. Presence of a large number of students from socially and economically disadvantaged groups makes the teaching-learning process even more challenging. We, at Nowgong Girls’ College are able to cope up with the challenge with a strong determination and positive approach. We have left no stone unturned for all round development of the students. Every effort is being made to make the teaching-learning process more fruitful and to ensure holistic development of the students. Empowering women through educationhas been the underlying spirit for us and the institution has been continuing its journey inpursuit of excellence.
