Lakshmi Bai College for Women has a rich history of empowering women since its establishment in 1975. It is the first women’s college in Assam, established by the Assam Government to provide higher education opportunities for female students. Over the past 40 years, Lakshmi Bai College for Women has made immense progress and achieved many milestones. From a small institution with merely 75 students and 13 teachers, it has now grown into a reputed institution with over 4000 students and around 94 faculty members from different disciplines.
The college was renamed after Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi in recognition of her contribution to India’s struggle for independence. The original building, which is situated near National Highway 37, still stands tall and serves as an inspiration to upcoming generations of girls.
The college offers multidisciplinary academic programs such as Bachelors and Masters degrees in Arts, Sciences and Commerce as well as Technical Education (including diploma certificates) with focussed attention on curbing Gender Inequality by providing equal educational opportunities to women. Recently it was also given Autonomous status granting it complete autonomy over its courses and curriculum.
