    No religion is greater than service. Teaching and learning is not only for the sake of livelihood but also for the welfare of society, that relates ‘serving humanity is serving God’-that is the basic philosophy of education. Over the 35 years West Goalpara College has been facilitating higher education over 70 thousand students since 1981, the establishment of the college. Students quench thirst of knowledge to use in their lives, the kind of education imparted in our Institute lasts forever which is deep rooted in encouraging our students to be self-reliant livelihood, inquisitive knowledge hunt, positive productive in work and in mindset tolerant in attitude. The education that we impart gives the students enormous scope for independent thinking and faces the different challenges they confront in the society. We try to impart knowledge having relevance to character and personality building, discipline and co-existence, empowerment for standing on own footing and realities in practical life. Hence, we infuse the spirit of inquisitiveness into the minds of young students to stand in a better position when confronted with crisis. We not only empower the students but see that their inherent strength is tapped and nurtured and enriched to sustain them forever. We insist on the facilities to involve beyond teaching in impact research undertaken with the available resources; we also strive to emphasize in extension of research output for the benefit of the society. We groom the students to cope up with global learning, high thinking and motivate them to work together for the good of the society. We make tireless efforts to build up capacity of our students to become responsible citizens in the making of modern India.

    I, on behalf of college authority, welcome the students who prefer to get themselves admitted into West Goalpara College, Ambari. The college came into being in 1981 as the cumulative consequences of the noble initiatives and painstaking efforts collectively undertaken by a host of leading citizens and the general public of 38 Goalpara West Constituency. The college can now boast of a student enrolment of nearly 2000 and a faculty strength of nearly 70 and a alumni of several thousand students well established in different fields. The college has two streams i.e. Arts and Science, up to Degree level with Major in all subjects. The college has Boys’ and Girls’ hostel separately. There is a magnificent library in the college where more than 17000 books of various subjects are available. The college has two study centers namely KKHSOU (Krishna Kanta Handique State Open University) and GUIDOL (Guwahati University Institute of Distance and Open Learning) under Guwahati University. The main purpose of these universities is to promote education among the downtrodden and the backward sections of the society through open and distance learning at minimum and affordable fees. The study centers offer various courses up to master degree level. The present infra-structures of the college comprises spacious classrooms, well equipped library and laboratories, hostel provisions, play ground for sports and many more support services. Besides the academic pursuit the college encourages and promotes departmental seminars, workshops, study tours and NSS and Scout and Guide programme. This is true that without the co-operation of Governing Body, Teaching and Non-teaching staff, the students as well as well- wishers and benevolent public, it is not possible for us to achieve the best for the overall development of the college. It is our vision that West Goalpara College shall be at par in academic excellence with national standard which can be translated into practice with full co-operation of our students and learned teachers. The success of any mission depends on the collective efforts, co-operation and concerted action of all stakeholders. It is my earnest appeal to all to come forward and help us in achieving our goal. Let us join hands to make our college one of the Institute and to make the dream of the founding fathers a reality.
