As per the decision of Asom Sahitya Sabha, the largest and most prestigious organization of Assam, Anandaram Dhekial Phookan College was established in 1959, to retain the memories of one of the greatest legends of Assam, Anandaram Dhekial Phookan. The broad philosophy of Anandaram Dhekial Phookan was to nurture today’s youth to face tomorrow’s challenges and we have well complemented our motto of ‘ nurturing tomorrow’s minds’ by gradually and successfully transitioning from being ‘ consumers of knowledge’ to the ‘producers of knowledge’. It gives me great pleasure to invite you to take an initial peek into the heart that beats behind the appealing façade of Anandaram Dhekial Phookan. I thank you for your interest in this exceptional institution which has recorded six decades of constant development, in the course of which it has accomplished much, making it one of the colleges recognized for its excellence and therefore, much sought after by the fresh applicants.
Anandaram Dhekial Phookan college (A.D.P College) is a seat of learning that celebrated its Golden Jubilee in 2009. Named after Anandaram Dhekial Phookan, an illustrious son of Assam, who struggled hard to establish the fact about the excellance of Assamese language and who desired all along to see a prosperous, beautiful Assam, the college caters for higher education needs of an educationally backward district of Assam like Nagaon as well as of the State situated in a serene atmosphere away from the din and bustle of town life, though within the town, the college offers an ideal surrounding dotted with green, luxuriant and foliage for teaching– learning atmosphere.
The Mission and goals of the college are to disseminate education in humanities and science to meet the needs and aspirations of the people of Assam in general and of Nagaon district in particular, irrespective of caste, creed, religion and sex. The Cherished vision of the college is to make it a seat of excellence and quality education.
