I am indeed very happy that Ri- Bhoi College has completed more than Thirty Years of dedicated service to the cause of higher education in Ri-Bhoi District giving prime concern to the needs of the disadvantaged and differently abled students. This has been made possible because of the resolute faith and self-sacrifice of the visionaries, Dr D.D.Lapang, Shri R.R.K.Makdoh, Shri J.D. Rymbai and (L) Smti Belsimai Syiem who pioneered and have given their contribution for the growth of this institution.
I appreciate the endeavours of my predecessors, Prof H. Syiemlieh, (L) Shri R.I. Masharing and Shri H.C.Bathew which have yielded results in many areas. The College has grown over the years certainly not without ups and downs.
I assumed office as the Principal of Ri-Bhoi College in 2004. On taking up the position, I comprehended that there are a number of important goals to pursue and to strive persistently to create the necessary conditions to ensure quality higher education. I appreciate the confidence reposed by the staff on me and in this connection I take this opportunity to make a special mention and to thank them for their co-operation and commitment in bringing the college to its present position.
We will make every effort to introduce add- on courses and to make a breakthrough in vocationalising education thus to look upon education in the wider context for students to use skills to earn their living enabling them to cope with the demands of the century. Instilling in the young people a civic sense and inculcating values among them for their personal development will be our utmost concern.
Our special gratitude to the Website Committee for setting up and maintaining the Ri- Bhoi College website with all relevant information about the institution in a way that will make everything easy to explore. Hoping that all concerned will go through the website to get clarity about the educational institute.
We hope that shortcomings will be removed in future and the college will give a better account of itself. I have no doubt all the staff would reiterate to bring honour to the institution by making meaningful contributions. With gratitude to God we will continue our journey ahead to uphold the motto of the College “Steadfast unto the end”.
