"Providing holistic and quality education within the reach of all"
"To mould intellectually competent, morally upright, socially committed and spiritually inspired persons capable of building a more human social order within the context of the nation's plurality of religions and diversity of cultures
Guided by the religious and educational philosophy of St. John Bosco, and born of the vision of a Don Bosco Father, Fr. Joseph Bacchiarello, St. Anthony's College was founded in 1934 with the avowed mission of 'bringing college education within the reach of common man and woman'. Ever since, the College has been nurtured by the Salesians of Don Bosco to be in the vanguard of higher education in North-East India.
We seek to provide quality education for all sections of society reaching out especially to the socially, economically, culturally and educationally disadvantaged. Our system embodies a participatory style of management, always alive to emerging needs and challenges, where a sense of belonging and ownership is shared and where exists regular interaction between the different constituents involved, so that education becomes the responsibility of a community comprising teachers, parents, students and management.
We emphasize life-oriented and value-based teaching and nurture a culture of solidarity. The educators and the educated join hands to mould intellectually competent, morally upright, socially committed and spiritually inspired persons capable of building a more human social order within the context of the nation's plurality of religions and diversity of cultures.
We aim to equip our students for life, making them not only job-seekers, but also job-creators. Hence, in keeping with the developments in educational strategies worldwide, we have pioneered courses in application-oriented subjects to answer to the needs of the community that we serve and to give our graduates a competitive edge in the employment market.
Teaching, for us here at the College, is a lifetime commitment, a passion, a vocation and a profession, rather than a job. Our Teachers are continually engaged in equipping themselves so as to stay abreast of the latest developments in their own fields.
Striving for excellence is our way of life. Our motto tells it all "Ever More Better Ever".
