St. Joseph’s College(Autonomous) is 39 years old and is steadily making progress towards academic excellence. It is the only college in the state that has a steady enrolment of 4000 and above students. It is the only college in the state that fulfils the criteria of enrolment set by NEP-2020. The Director of Higher Education, Kohima, Shri A. Nshoga at the All Nagaland Government College Teachers Association inaugural function of its 1st Triennial Conference in Dimapur on 10th November 2023 said, “By the year 2040, higher education institutions in Nagaland with less than 3000 students may face closure due to the criteria set by the National Education Policy (NEP-2020). Currently, St. Joseph’s College (Autonomous), Jakhama is the lone institution in the state that fulfils the criteria.” The curriculum and framework of NEP-2020 speaks of skill enhancement courses and value-added courses. One of the attractions at the college is skill-oriented activities and programmes which fulfil the aims of NEP-2020. Keeping in view of skill enhancement and value-added courses, the syllabus of every department is framed on outcome-based education (OBE). The College is a church managed institution, however being open to all cultures and religions, the prayer room in the college has the sacred religious books of Holy Bible, Bhagavad Gita and Quran, which are available and anyone can read, pray and meditate.
