Dhing College was founded in 1965. It is an affiliated college of the Gauhati University for Arts, Science and Commerce. In the year 1965, a group of socially responsible and committed individuals with the generous help of the people of larger Dhing area worked hard and with a purpose to make Dhing College a historic happening. Their vision of empowering the people of North-West part of Nagaon district through providing the students with accessibility to higher education has already transformed the educationally, economically and socially backward people into developed individuals. The perseverance and sweat of the common men and the right initiatives of their socially committed leaders have given Dhing its distinct place in the field of higher education.
The College that began with a few students and fewer than ten teachers in a small house is now located on a seventy five - bigha area of sprawling campus in a serene atmosphere. The College came under 2(f) of UGC in 1971. In 1975, this institution of the common men was brought under deficit grants-in-aid system by the Govt. of Assam. Since then, the College has grown from strength to strength. Science stream was opened in 1987. Accessibility to higher education in science became a reality. The poor but meritorious and disadvantaged students of this backward area tasted the advantage of science education that opened up vast possibilities for pursuing advanced science & technology courses for bettering their own career and in terms of making their place economically and socially advanced. After eleven years of academic journey through financial constraints and other hurdles, the science stream was brought under deficit grants-in-aid system in 1998. Late Digen Ch. Bora, the Ex. Minister of Govt. of Assam worked with a purpose and tremendious sense of commitment to help spread science education by his all out efforts. The entire fraternity of Dhing College including the successive Governing Bodies have worked hard consistently to make Dhing College an excellent centre of higher secondary and tertiary education.
The commerce stream was opened in 2016. Today, Dhing College is a three-stream College delivering quality educational and social services to the people of Assam. That College born in 1965 has grown up into a complete institution through fifty two years of hardship, struggle, success and fulfilment. The Golden Jubilee Celebration in 2015 epitomized the meaningful existence of this institution.
