Description of the Surroundings:
The college is situated on the bank of the historic ‘Moglow’ tank- reminding one of the saga of Kuranganayani, the Manipuri princess and the age-old link of Assam with Manipur. The college is 4.5 km away from NH no-37 through the terminus of Gourisagar. To the north of the college is the historical Bor Ali, and to the south, east and west is the vast greenery of the paddy fields stretching far beyond and lending it a touch of rare scenic beauty.
Operating with considerable success in an area crippled by not only acute socio-economic backwardness and devastating floods, but also a sombre history of political unrest and insurgency, the college has been hardened and adaptative enough to work effectively in the midst of the worst of all odds. Its teachers have learned over the years how to motivate and mould the students in such an environment. The college has managed to build up an academic atmosphere that facilitates both formal teaching and inculcation of discipline and civic responsibilities among the students. We have successfully evoked in the people a wholesome image of student friendly, co-operative and forward-looking college. The teaching and non-teaching staffs not only carry out their duties with a missionary zeal but also donate generously to support the needy students, student-centric programmes and extension activities. The management though still sticking to the conventional patterns, functions quite smoothly on both financial and academic fronts. The college has been patronizing important welfare activities for the neighbouring area and as such it enjoys good will and co-operation of the local populace, which contributes to the proper functioning of the college. Taking into account the general backwardness and poverty of our students, we have been offering our students the most competitive and lowest fee structure in the entire district. We as a college are always in a mood of introspection and welcome any constructive criticism that comes our way. We always try to give our students the best possible facilities on every front and ever willing to fine-tune and update ourselves for that purpose.
Future Expansion Plan:
We at Dikhowmukh College believe that to stand out in the rat-race for survival in the modern day world, one needs to have the right attitude and the proper training and guidance. One must learn to face the competitive world in a smart way from an early period. For that a student is required to supplement his/her formal education with some professional, need-based, career-oriented courses. With this conviction the college plans to introduce several self-financing and non-formal courses of study in the next decade keeping in view their viability and utility. The academic programmes such as those of diploma in Office Management, Mushroom Cultivation, Food Processing, Cane and Bamboo Furniture making, Screen Printing, Certificate course in Creative Writing and Rural Journalism, Tribal Textile and Folk Culture, Tourism etc are proposed to be introduced in the next couple of years. Such programmes of study are going to help the educated unemployed youths to find suitable career opportunities, it is believed.
Introduction of Science and Commerce streams is also being considered with utmost priority along with above mentioned courses.
Among other academic plans, the college will form an Internal Control Cell to ensure quality in academics. Research activities will be intensified and encouraged among the teachers of the college. Internet service will be made accessible to all the departments in minimum possible time.
• All major sections of the college will be computerized with one central server in the computer lab.
• The library will be equipped with all modern amenities and will be shifted to a separate building which is under construction.
• Separate boys’ and girls’ hostel will be constructed both in the campus and in its vicinity.
• Boys’ and girls’ common rooms will be equipped with modern facilities.
• An independent open-air canteen will be constructed on the bank of the Moglow Tank.
• Beautification of the Moglow Tank will be carried out with concrete benches and flower garden around it.
• New building will be constructed to accommodate new courses of study.
• A flood-free building with government grant will be constructed in the college where even the flood-stricken people of the area can also be accommodated and that will also serve as a temporarily rehabilitation centre.
Mobilisation of Fund:
It is needless to say that the accomplishment of all what has been proposed for future expansion both in the academic and infrastructural front, the requirement of adequate and sufficient fund cannot be denied. Keeping in view the existing resource of the college, there is little scope for mobilisation of fund. However, various sources for the same have been given priority. Some of them are:
a) Donors both individual and organisations.
b) Industrial organisations like ONGC and Tea Gardens.
c) Peoples Representatives (MLA/MP etc)
d) By engaging Alumni in various productive activities in and outside the college.
e) Agricultural farming in the cultivable lands of the college.
f) A book stall with stationeries within the campus of the college is also under consideration.
