Education is the creation and dissemination of knowledge for the welfare of the society and for better living of the mankind. I feel privileged and honored to welcome you to the serene campus of GDC Sumbal. The college is progressing by leaps and bounds in all the spheres of curricular and co-curricular activities. Keeping pace with the changing times and standards of global education, the college has equipped all the science laboratories with IT-enabled smart class boards to make teaching and learning more interesting, informative, interactive and student friendly. During winters there were frequent power cuts due to heavy snowfall, due to which a lot of inconvenience was faced by the college administration in running the daily affairs of the college. Keeping in view this grave problem, the college procured and installed a 40 KVA genset to provide 24x7 power supply to the college. This will definitely boost the academic activities in the college. With sufficient funding from the government, the college purchased equipment for science laboratories and establishment section. The college has a rich library with books on almost all the subjects including some magazines and journals as well. It has also the facility of a browsing center where students can access books and journals. But it is of use only if students spend time in the library and browsing center and get benefitted from it.
The college now has almost all the adequate facilities of a modern higher educational institute, in terms of infrastructure and I am sure the students as well as the new entrants will surely get benefitted by the facilities available in the college.
Dear students, we shall leave no stone unturned in providing you better education in a disciplined and peaceful atmosphere, so that you are well prepared to meet the challenges of future. The students choose from diverse subject combinations including the conventional as well as marks oriented subjects like music, biotechnology, social work, psychology, etc.
In 2019, although in its infancy, the college crossed yet another milestone by facing NAAC accreditation. With the active support from faculty, non-teaching staff and students, the college was well prepared and successfully crossed the stage and got NAAC accreditation. After NAAC accreditation, the college is all set to receive adequate funds from UGC, RUSA, DST, MHRD, CSIR and other agencies. The funding becomes essential for the growth of an institution, I am sure the college has the potential to become a center of excellence in Kashmir.
Dear students, our faculty is highly qualified, young, dynamic, motivating and ever ready to help you in pursuit of your career. We want you to interact with the faculty to build your career and at the same time be conscious of your responsibilities towards the society and nation as the students are the future of any nation. While pursuing your academic career, we expect you to uphold the dignity of our college by maintaining discipline in and around the college campus. Let us pledge to work together for the realization of the vision and mission which we have set for yourselves. My good wishes for students, teaching and non-teaching staff of the college.
