Guru Nanak College, Sukhchainana Sahib, Phagwara, which came into existence with a dedicated mission, to transform society through education, on the fifth birth centenary of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, is today a pioneer temple of higher education serving all the sections of society adequately and befittingly. The scenario of higher education is changing rapidly with stupendous challenges but I perceive our beloved institution has vast potentialities for growth and my dream is by the time of our coming golden jubilee, this institution of ours be one of the best in the country in the field of quality higher education.
The college has progressed significantly during the last five/six years both on, quantitative and qualitative fronts. The students’ strength has improved considerably and the university results improved dramatically with more than forty merit positions including university toppers. The teaching-learning resources have been significantly strengthened with establishment of hi-tech smart classrooms, new central library building and advanced library resources, new computer labs., new science labs., accounting lab., language lab., network resource centre, career counselling cell, new seminar/ audio-visual hall and strengthening of administrative services. To perpetuate the memory of our founder – S. Jagat Singh Palahi – and to promote sports among youth, a residential sports academy has been established and got registered with Punjab Football Association. Thus, the college has been making steady progress in academics, sports and extra-curricular activities.
In order to continue this progress saga, I solicit co-operation and support from all stakeholders – college managing committee, teaching and non-teaching staff, students, alumni, parents and general public – so that we march on and serve the youth adequately and suitably. Our united effort will surely bear fruit and transform society through education ushering in a new dawn of enlightenment, development, peace, bliss and prosperity.
Thanks and regards,
Dr. Gurdev Singh
