Welcome to the Gopeshwar College, Hathwa, website. As you view the pages of our website you will definitely get a feel for the vibrancy and strength of our College!

This is only the beginning however!

Founded in 1956 by the farsighted local gentries of Hathwa, Gopeshwar College is a co-educational constituent institution of Jai Prakash Unversity, Chapra. It is established over a sprawling campus with its calm surroundings which has been generously donated as a lifelong gift to the people of Hathwa and the nearby areas by the erstwhile Maharaja of Hathwa, Sri Gopeshwar Prasad Sahi. College got recognised under 2(f) & 12 (b) criteria of the University Grants Commission in November 01, 1976.

Since Gopeshwar College is situated in a remote area of the educationally backward district of Gopalganj, we are deeply committed to making positive changes to improve the campus climate and broaden the richness and diversity of our community and curriculum. We stand in firm solidarity with our students, faculty and staff who share our goals of continuously improving the College in ways that will benefit the entire campus and enhance our learning and working environment.

We have long recognized the need to improve the diversity of our campus. Numerous outreach efforts and diversity initiatives currently exist; however, it is clear that we need to do more. To this end, we reaffirm our steadfast commitment to improving the overall campus climate for everyone. We will continue to involve the campus and larger community in expanded efforts to make this College a better place and to enrich our education, research and quality of life.

We must continue to work together – students, staff, faculty, and community members – to achieve our shared commitment to an open, welcoming, and supportive campus for all people from all backgrounds and walks of life.

Gopeshwar College is deeply committed to fostering a lifelong commitment to social justice, civic engagement, and social responsibility in every member of the Gopeshwar  Community.
