Jogananda Deva Satradhikar Goswami (JDSG) College, Bokakhat is one of the prominent institutions of higher education in the district of Golaghat. Situated in a beautiful natural ambience by the side of N.H. 37, in the close vicinity of the Kaziranga National Park-the World Heritage Site, the college has been playing a pivotal role in educating rural youths and in contributing towards creating a good citizenry in the greater Bokakhat sub, divisional area ever since its inception in 1964.The College, recognized by the UGC under relevant sections of the UGC Act, also happens to be the last one in the western part among the affiliated colleges under Dibrugarh University. The college has completed 51 years of its glorious existence in spite of all odds and limitations. The college covers an area of 17.07 acres/68,299.2 sq. mts (51 bighas) of land with good infrastructure and learning resources.
Set up with the vision of' Education for Social Justice and Peace', the college has been sincere and devout in its approach to contribute towards the social, moral, economic, literary and cultural up liftment of the youths of the area as was visualized by the founders of the college. The college imparts education in the undergraduate programmers under the Dibrugarh University in Arts and Commerce streams. These two streams were brought under the then deficit system of grants in aid in the years 1975 and 1988 respectively. Later on, like other deficit- grants-in aid colleges of Assam, the college was also declared provincialized under an Act passed in this regard by the Government of Assam. The college provides a healthy meeting ground to students belonging to different social sections, most of them being the SCs, STs, TGLs and OBC/MOBC communities. The college has modest infrastructure and learning resources including a Digital Classroom and a Video Conferencing Room. More such ICT enabled rooms are being planned in the near future. The college library is good in its resources including e-resources. There is also a Network Resource Centre in the library. In order to accommodate students from distant areas the college possesses two hostels-one each for boys and girls. At present he total faculty strength is 54, including 22 Associate Professors, and 15Assistant Professors with 11number of non teaching staff. There are 1812 students in its rolls.
Keeping in view the present trend of modem education as well as the challenge of time, endeavors have been made to start a number of job oriented courses as is also desired by the proposed Choiced Based Credit System from next academic session by the Dibrugarh University after a mandate by the University Grants Commission. Our vision is ''Education for justice and peace." We propose to direct all our future academic and other allied activities to fulfil this vision that might help in the nation building process. Our emphasis will always be on imparting quality education to our students with the available resources with us.
