Arya Vidyapeeth College, established on 29 July 1958, is one of the premier educational institutions of not only Assam, but also of the entire North East India. It was the realization of the dream project of Late Giridhar Sarma, visionary, renowned academician and litterateur of repute, to set up an ideal educational institute from the primary to the post graduate level.
Education is a movement that leads from darkness to light (Tamaso Ma Jyotirgamaya). And higher education is the key to transform a society. We, like William Butler Yeats, believe that Education is not the filling of a vessel but the lighting of a fire. Our College plays a pivotal role in nurturing the talents and shaping the young minds of our students. We believe that it is our responsibility to turn the mirror into a window. Our endeavour is 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 a path breaker 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 the 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 a beautiful relationship with our stakeholders including our retired teachers, alumni, parents, and neighbouring community. Together we are a team. Obviously, we all are committed towards our goal i.e. to reach excellence in all fields, from academics to research and from sports to culture. I trust that we will have a long, happy and rewarding association and make Arya Vidyapeeth College a “dream come true” in the real sense. 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.
