The first dawn of higher education in Dhanbad district appeared in 1951 as Raja Shiv Prasad College, Jharia established by Raja Kali Prasad Singh in the memory of his father who championed the cause of education. Our college is the second oldest college of Vinoba Bhave University Hazaribag. Our college has been making its effective contribution in spreading the higher education both amongst boys and girls in the coal-belt of Jharia, since its inception.
I beam with great pleasure in mentioning that RSP College is the foremost source of academic enlightenment. It takes pride in showing remarkable supremacy by producing worthy personalities in every walk of life reaching the heights of great achievements within a period of six decades.
Our college can profess a “gathering storm” of scientists, Engineers, Doctors, Judges, Administrators, Politicians and poets to dignify the image of an institution imparting higher education upto post graduate level with notably rich library facilities. It is to be noted that Hon. Justice S. B. Sinha also pursued his studies from this college. Our college has sent a large number of Dean of the faculties and Heads to different departments of the Vinoba Bhave University, Hazaribag.
Most of the teachers excel in their areas, occupying the distinct position among the front line of high academicians and serving incessantly and tirelessly with utmost devotion and dedication in the college for the noble cause of education. In science stream, the special sentiments of interest are neutrino-physics, CP violation, climate change, magneto Hydro-dynamics, pollution, environmental issues, medicinal plants, plant pathology and ecology-accelerating the academic tempo of the students. Financial management, Marketing Management, Security analysis and Portfolio Management, Foreign Trade, Money Banking, Taxation, Corporate Laws and problems related to Business Administration are the specifications of the commerce faculties of our college. Different branches of literature- poetry, Drama, Novel, Prose, Short-Stories and criticism reach their acme in the literature-departments. Indian Coal Industry and economic studies of pre and post nationalization period, wage productivity relationship in Indian steel industry and studies of ancient and medieval India are the hall marks of Social Sciences.
Higher education is the symbol of peace, prosperity and progress. I am sure that, in future also, our college will keep on contributing more effectively so as to achieve the ultimate goal “ARISE AWAKE”, for which the college was established.
