It was in 1973 that the Sikh Educational Society set up Guru Gobind Singh College for Women in Chandigarh to cater to the growing need for quality higher education for women. The mission was to provide the best education and values to young women to become responsible citizens, to serve humanity and to enhance the quality of their lives. In furtherance of its mission, the college focuses upon empowering young women with holistic and liberal education, analytical reasoning effective problem solving and leadership skills and the ability to fulfill their responsibilities to local and global communities.
The Sikh Educational Society with its proactive approach and relentless efforts is managing six educational institutions with the objective of imparting comprehensive modern education with an ethical dimension. Tenets of Sikhism are the abiding values on which the Management and staff base their functioning. The ambience of the institutions reflects the teachings of the Sikh Gurus, and the students internalize this atmosphere. This prepares the young minds to face the challenges of life with conviction, confidence and courage.
Guided by an enlightened and supportive Management drawn from different walks of life, the college has been moving conscientiously in the direction of achieving its cherished goals. The illustrious office -bearers of the Executive Committee of the Sikh Educational Society are:
