From the Principal's Desk

Education is a preparation for life. Creativity, critical thinking, innovation and understanding make life wholesome and growth holistic. Informed by these goals, higher education at Maitreyi College maximizes value addition and skill enhancement. Students not only pursue courses in Science, Commerce and Humanities, but also train to become well-rounded citizens contributing effectively to the society and the country.

As an A++ accredited college by NAAC, Maitreyi ensures that learning meets opportunity and talent meets mentorship! The Centre for Research (CFR) of the college trains students in nuances of research, enabling them to become published scholars from the very start. The Short-Term and Certificate Courses train students in various skills, enhancing their competence and employability. The college also incubates student-run start-ups, and the Entrepreneurship Cell offers a springboard for students to become industry-ready. The 147.7% jump in internships and job placements witnessed this year, testifies to the fact that the college Placement Cell is a veritable bridge between our students and opportunities. Further, a total of 14 vibrant cultural societies and different cells in the college diversify exposure across various fields from marketing to filmmaking, fine arts, debating, theater, among others. Sports facilities in college follow the same standard and continue to be par excellence. The college hosts various special training programs, unified tournaments in association with the Olympic Baharat. Daily coaching sessions for students are supplemented by the requisite infrastructure.

All these initiatives in the college are fine-tuned still further, to comply with the ideals of the National Education Policy (NEP). Hence learning at Maitreyi is inclusive, interdisciplinary, experiential and involves a substantial use of the ICT. The curricular, co-curricular and extracurricular initiatives are facilitated by an incredibly motivated group of staff members. The college faculty comprises fine educators who are also seasoned researchers. They occupy various positions of academic merit in their respective fields and are recipients of national and international honors. Informed by contemporary demands and a futuristic vision, they train students to become efficient young professionals of tomorrow. An equally competitive non-teaching staff enables smooth execution of curricular, extra-curricular and administrative activities. Their support to students and the faculty is unflinching! With this, teaching-learning becomes a smooth sail. And as learning continues both inside and outside the classroom, the lush-green and vibrant environs of the college provide a perfect setting to such intensive learning at Maitreyi. Students rejuvenate amongst the greens while also honing an eco-conscious sensibility.

The above facts and perspectives are just the tip of the iceberg! And I’m sure the new students cannot wait to partake of this wholesome world of growth and opportunity!

The entire Maitreyi Kutumb takes immense pleasure in welcoming new students to the institution. Past fifty-six years have witnessed remarkable accomplishments and our students have upheld the college ideals. Our alumni have done us proud, both in India and abroad and I am confident that the incoming batch of students will contribute to this stellar legacy.

Best Wishes,
Prof. Haritma Chopra
