The concept of any institution is based upon some specific vision. Education needs the roots of vision so that the purpose of education – “All Round Development” can be fulfilled. Higher education aims at the all round development of intellectual, emotional and ethical aspect’s of human personality.
Raja Shiva Prasad College of Jharia in Dhanbad District of Jharkhand state has grown rapidly since its inception in 1951. The college is the widening of the mind and of the spirit in the coal – belt, around the vast area of more than hundred kilometers. The purpose of the college is to enhance and intensify one’s vision of that synthesis of truth and beauty which is the highest and deepest reality.
The golden teaching of RSP College is “Utistha jagrata”. It means arise or awake. It forms the part of the statement of Swami Vivekananda, the most effective interpreter of Indian thought to the world –
“Arise! Awake! And Stop not the goal is reached”. The forerunner and founders of our college were certainly inspired by this prophet and they adopted his imperishable message imparting “a man – making” and “Life – building” education.
