Arya Vidyapeeth College is one of the premier educational institutions of not only Assam, but also of the entire North East India as well. Late Giridhar Sarma, a visionary, renowned academician and litterateur of repute, established the College on 29 July, 1958, thus realizing his dream project to set up an ideal educational institute from the primary to post graduate level.
We know that higher education is the key to transform the society. We, like William Butler Yeats, believe that “Education is not the filling of a vessel but the lighting of a fire”. And yes, it’s true that Education is a movement that leads from darkness to light (Tamaso Ma Jyotirgamaya). Our college and Our Teachers play a pivotal role in nurturing and shaping the young minds of our students. We believe that it is our responsibility to turn the mirror into a window. We shall Endeavour to empower our students to become the forerunners in this competitive world and a human being in the true sense of the term.
Arya Vidyapeeth College has been the pioneer amongst all the grants-in-aid Colleges of Assam in many areas. We have introduced PG course in Chemistry and UG course in Commerce stream from 2015. The teachers have contributed immensely towards the development of research culture in the College. Some of them have brought laurels to the College through their various achievements. I hope our teachers will take out more and more time for research to fulfill dream of the great founder Late Giridhar Sarma. We must move faster to achieve our goal, because time is of essence.
In the last six decades we have developed great relationship with our stakeholders including parents, Alumnus, ex-teachers and neighbors. Together we are a team. Obviously we all are committed towards our goal i.e. to reach excellence in all fields, right from academics to research and from sports to cultures. I trust that we will have a long, happy and rewarding association and make Arya Vidyapeeth a dream come true. I look forward to working with you all in developing a productive and supportive partnership to steer the young generations towards a successful, happy and prosperous future.
