Datu Ibrahim Paglas Memorial College (DIMPC) was formerly Datu Paglas Educational Development (DPED), a private college established at the Municipality of Datu Paglas, Province of Maguindanao.
The emmergence of this institution started in the preparatory events pursued with dedication and determination by a Muslim professional like Mr. Abdula Maguid Tangkli who initiated and conceived the idea of establishing the college, an institution of learning in tertiary level that will cater the educational needs of the Bangsamoro, Muslim, Christian and Indigenous cultural minorities.
During the height of enrolment period in the Elementary level at Datu Paglas way back in SY 1999-2000 MR Abdula M. Tangkli and his counter part Mr. Camindon M.

The plan for opening of college on academic year (AY) 2000 – 2001 did not prosper because of financial constraint and unstable peace and order condition in Central Mindanao, as a result of the all-out war policy of the ousted President, ERAP Estrada against the MILF.
