Established ‘Aizawl College’ in 1975 by a team of philanthropic citizens meeting at the Office chamber of the then Legislative Assembly Speaker, Dr. H.Thansanga, on the 13th. January 1975, Aizawl College (later renamed Government Aizawl College following its take-over by the State Government) was formally inaugurated by Pu Ch. Chhunga, the first Chief Minister of Mizoram. Classes started on the evening of 25.8.1975 with 350 students of Pre University Class and six Lecturers. It was up graded to Deficit Grant-in-aid status with effect from 1 November 1984 and became Government on 1 January 1989. The College was included under section 2(f) of the UGC Act 1956 and section 12(B) of the UGC Act 1956 with effect from 17.3.1987. While affiliated to the NEHU, the college was one of the prominent members of the NEHU family. It is now affiliated to Mizoram University.
Aizawl College started classes in the premises of the Govt. Boys’ M.E. School at Sikulpuikawn, Mission Veng, in the evening. Two multi-storied buildings have been constructed for the College in the vacant lot between the school building and the main road which, by local standards, is quite impressive, but not quite sufficient to meet the ever growing demands of today’s career-oriented education.
The College has two stream – Art and Commerce with eight different disciplines in Art Stream offering both general and honours.
The College has a good view of the surrounding ever-green hills of Reiek to the west and Hmuifang on the south in the background, and the well tended compounds of the Mizo Presbyterian Synod Headquarters in the foreground. The presence of a fully equipped Conference Center of the Synod in many ways alleviate the shortcoming of the college in organizing official functions. However, the college is soon to have a Hall of its own at the top of the two buildings on the fund made available by the honorable M.P., Pu Lalhmingliana, himself an alumnus of the College.
