The college, inaugurated in 2010, is established in response to the growing needs of imparting quality education to the students of far flung areas of district Karak. I believe education lies at the heart of almost all the challenges that the country confronts. That is why it is to be treated as a strategic imperative and not just a desirable social goal. It is the key that will unlock almost every problem. It is hoped that this college would produce a generation which could act as guiding light for the coming generations. Our aspirations are guided by our vision “To have an educated, tolerant and progressive society” and the mission statement Acquire moderate enlightenment and moral excellence through quality education”. Our endeavors are directed to achieve our targets:- To be among the prestigious institutes of the region To encourage students imbibe high moral and social values To inculcate constructive approach in the students To motivate students to be patriotic and responsible citizens of Pakistan I thank Allah for having a team of highly inspired and committed academicians who have been contributing positively in achieving these targets. I have got a lot yet to say and more even to do. May Allah bless our efforts to prove fruitful for the future of our nation. Ameen Prof. Muhammad Rais Khan sb Principal INTRODUCTION Government Degree College Latamber Karak is situated at a very ideal location in Latamber, Karak. A network of roads connects the college to different areas of Latamber and other adjacent areas. The need to establish a Government run educational institution for the people of Latamber was felt intensively since long, which led to the establishment of this College at the Degree level in 2001. The college offers courses, both in Natural Sciences, Social Sciences and the Humanities group and, therefore, satisfies the need and taste of the society from different angles.

The foremost objectives are to exploit and refine moral, mental and intellectual capabilities of students in order to develop a balanced personality and an ideal character.
