It gives me immense pleasure to invite you to the Guru Nanak College of Arts, Science and Commerce in the academic year 2019-20, as we commemorate the 550th birth anniversary of the founder of Sikhism, the first guru-Guru Nanak Devji! It is, also a divine and pleasant coincidence that the college turns thirty this year. We have achieved numerous milestones in the last three decades and have emerged among the leading higher education institutions of Mumbai.
Guru Nanak Vidyak Society which was established at the dawn of an Independent India in 1947, started the Guru Nanak College in 1989, to provide opportunities in higher education to the young first generation learners in Central Mumbai.
Highly qualified, dedicated faculty strives to infuse quality in the “teaching-learning” process in the streams of humanities, Commerce and Basic Sciences along with applied courses like Information Technology, Management Studies, Accounting & Finance, Banking & Insurance, Financial Management and Mass Media. While this process forms the core of the academic programs, a number of value added courses supplement and enrich learning.
Superior infrastructure facilitates student centered teaching. Modernised Laboratories and updated digital tools support and enrich research and pedagogy. State of the art Seminar rooms, a playground and an auditorium are among the rare facilities that any college in Mumbai can boast of.
Co-curricular and extra-curricular activities are blended with academics to instill vibrancy in the college environment and to hone the potential of each student. Encouragement is given to students to don the mantle of leadership when they organize events and interact with eminent guests who are experts in their respective fields.
Emphasis is also laid on inter-disciplinary learning which is promoted through various seminars conferences and workshops. Guru Nanak College has been accredited by NAAC with a B+ and is also a Community College in Retail Management recognized by UGC. The Department of Bio-Technology (DBT) has supported Science departments through its STAR scheme, this year. Due to its conscientious efforts towards building environment sensitivity, the college has received accolades from external agencies and NGOs.
The spirit of GNC is reflected through the values that are imparted by way of stimulating and synergetic interaction among its various stakeholders. Our Alumni bear testimony to this as they continue their proactive association with their Almamater!
The mission to provide a learning environment aimed at creating a skilled and competent human resource is clearly stated and the Management and staff are committed towards its fulfillment.
