Year of Establishment: November, 2000

India is experiencing a paradigm shift in the role of higher education in national development, particularly in capacity building in the areas of research, creativity, development of critical technologies, entrepreneurship, ICT, science & technology and moral leadership. For this higher education system requires trained teachers who are knowledgeable, creative, inspiring, good researchers, IT savvy, effective managers, and role models. The need for effective and professionally qualified teachers is increasing due to significant developments taking place in higher education system such as setting up of more Central Universities, proposal to establish World Class Universities and Model Colleges, expansion and globalization of higher education. For making higher education institutions active hubs of academic activity, the UGC- Academic Staff Colleges have to envisage their new role, multidimensional and integrative in the higher education system. Hence, professional development Programs for teachers will have to be reinvented and reengineered. 

Keeping this in mind UGC has granted establishment of Academic Staff College (ASC) in Sambalpur University and based on this approval, this ASC has started functioning from November 2000. Organizations of Refresher Courses, Orientation Programmes and other short term courses has become the primary functions of this ASC besides other innovative academic activities such as E-education and development of E-content, IT/Computer training, work shop for academic administrators etc. The ASC of Sambalpur University is discharging its duty since its establishment helping the college and university teachers in updating their knowledge in various subjects through organizing RC, OP, workshop and training programm. Though the ASC is still in its infancy compared to other ASCs established much earlier, with the co-operation and guidance of the Authority of Sambalpur University, it is growing very fast and this ASC has become one of the praiseworthy ASC of the country. Being fully residential in nature, all out-stationed participants stay in the ASC-Hostel with full boarding facility which is unique for this ASC. .
