the day on which the great educationist, the first Vice President and the second President of the India Dr. S. Radhakrishnan was born. Right from the beginingthe Principal of Maibang H.S.School, Late Bhadreswar Bodo planned of opening a Degree College at Maibang because his own students who had to go for higher education at least to a distance not less than 65 kilometers. Some of the H.S. passed out students had to give a full stop to educational achievement in spite of their having aspiration for the same only because of the poor family background to afford education outside. He shared his intention with the educated class of the people and the senior citizens of the locality and finally founded Maibang Degree College. A person who remained as a shadow with Late Bodo Sir and still providing his services as the President of the Governing Body of the college is Mr. J. L. Jidung Sir. The college was founded on the fifth September, in the hope that one day the college will also be of great reputation provided the coming generations understand the importance of the date. Since its foundation Late Bodo was the Principal of the college till his retirement on 9th January, 2006. From his retirement I have been rendering my services the Principal i/c of college till today with utmost sincerity.
The college was brought under deficit Grant-in-aid system from 1st April, 2001. The college office and the classes were held in the evening shift at the premises of the H. S. School till 2004 for the lack of infrastructure in its original campus and for the convenience of the students and staff of the college. After shifting of the college to its present campus the students and the staff faced lots of problems with the poor infrastructure of the college. The development of the infrastructure started with the construction of six classrooms with 10 lakh financial grant from the N.C.Hills Autonomous Council during the tenure of Late Bodo Sir.
Since the date of taking charge as the Principal i/c of the college, my prime interest for the college has been development of infrastructure of the college and academic advancement. Now, with various grants from the Government of Assam and N.C.Hills Autonomous Council the college is equipped with a modern digitalized library & digitalized class room, state of the art furniture for the teaching and non teaching staff, modern teaching aids including projector, computerized office, Photo-Copy facilities etc. Separate Common room for both boys and girls and boys are arranged. Office of the Maibang Degree College Students’ Union is also provided. Separate office for NSS and NCC(Girls & Boys) also provided along with permanent Open stage for Cultural programmers’. The multi-lingual college magazine is published from this year with the grant received from the Govt. of Assam. A new two storied building is under coming up to cater the problems of increasing number of students.
The services of 34 Nos. of posts of the college are provincialised w.e.f. 2005 under Assam College Employees (Provincialisation) Act, 2005 vide Govt. of Assam Education(Higher)Department order No.AHE.98/2006/96, dated-17-03-2009 and said act was extended to the Dima Hasao District vide Govt. of Assam Education(Higher)Department Notification No.AHE/98/2006/102-B,dated-Dispur, the3rd August,2009.
With the starting of Krishna Kanta Handiqui State Open University study centre at Maibang Degree College in the year 2012, the facility of distance education up to MA is available in the college. Specially, the dropped out students of the district at 10+2 level are availing the opportunity of restarting their educational aspiration by taking admission in BPP course of the university. The process of all round development of the college is still going on .I hope helping hands of the teaching and non-teaching staff of the college, the student both ex and present and the society as large to work united to bring about healthy development of the college.
