The College practices a well- structured system of mentoring for providing proper guidance to the students in not only choosing the suitable career options but also to infuse in them confidence, a sense of emotional security and a compelling sense of social responsibility. As Nelson Mandela has once stated that “education is the most powerful weapon that you can choose to change the world” and following this dictum the college organizes various outreach programmes in collaboration with NSS, NCC and WDC in order to instil a sense of social responsibility in students towards the uplift of the underprivileged sections of the society. By providing transformative education, efforts are made to infuse the values of mutual trust, teamwork and promotion of social capital, easy sharing of knowledge, skills and resources to create a vibrant society.

It has a practice of delegating authority and operational autonomy to all its constituted committees for a decentralized working. The institution lays emphasis on the fact that the learners should not only excel in their professional life by acquiring knowledge and innovative skills but also become responsible citizens by embracing human values and social ethics. To achieve the same, the college education focuses on multi-disciplinarity, skill enhancement, co- curricular and extracurricular activities. All the stakeholders envision a future rooted in the glorious past of the Indian education system with the hallways of higher education welcoming all equally that further nurture an environment which is conducive for holistic development.

Huge reservoir of e-resources is made available on different online portals through Delhi University Library System (DULS) that not only helps in developing critical thinking but also to equip them with the latest technological and learning resources that make them abreast with ever evolving world of technological advancement. As George Washington Carver has once affirmed that “education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom”; thus. following this dictum, the mission of the college is to unlock the locks of creativity of the students so that their untapped potential in every arena, be it technological prowess, sensitivity towards marginalized communities, academic excellence or artistic endeavours can be fully realized.
