Madhya Kamrup College is one of the premier institutions of higher education for boys and girls in one of the traditionally enlightened districts of Assam. It was established on 9th August, 1971 at Subha which is now a model village mostly inhabited by tribal people and located in the Chenga-Bahari area at the East-end of Barpeta district (formerly undivided Kamrup district of Assam).The college has been sanctioned ad-hok grant vide DHE letter No-G(A)RC.12/77/pt/209-25 dated-Kahilipara, the 2nd December 1977 & was taken over under deficit system of Grant-in-Aid w.e.f.1979 vide DHE letter No-G(A)RC/79/69 dated Kahilipara, the 3rd June 1980. It is heartening to note that the college is affiliated to Gauhati University and wasa brought under 2(F) & 12(B) of UGC Act in 2009 and now it is a provincialised college of Assam( vide Assam college Provincialised Act 2005).The area as it is surrounded by the adjoining char areas has a very ideal location. Students from different parts of the char areas have been studying here. The College has emerged as a pioneer institution with its glorious contribution to the field of education within a short span of time. It is owing to the commitment and dedication of the teaching and non-teaching staff and the perseverance of the students. The guardians of the locality have also contributed to a great extent for the growth of the institution. The selfless devotion and sacrifice of the local people have graduated this institution into a famous college of present Barpeta district and now it is standing with its head high as their cherished offspring. It is a great pleasure to note that the college has been assessed and reaccredited by the NAAC and awarded ‘B’ grade in 2016(2nd cycle).
The strength of this institution lives in its academic achievement and healthy environment. A rural College, essentially catering to the academic needs of local youths coming mostly from agro-based, working-class families, requires a very soft, careful managerial acumen in its build-up process. With a dedicated & learned teaching and non-teaching team, and satisfactory infrastructural facilities, Madhya Kamrup College has taken as its mission to develop the best of its talent in the youth and prepare them for the challenges of the changing world by encouraging intellectual achievement, self-discipline and physical fitness. It has been our humble effort to provide holistic education which can empower our students to be good citizens of global world.
