About us

Lakshmibai College, one of the premier institutions of higher education for women, was founded in 1965 as Womenís College. Later, it was named Lakshmibai College in memory of Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi, the great warrior, patriot and freedom fighter whose majestic and life-like statue adorns the lawns of the college. It is a constituent college of University of Delhi. The College has its own well-equipped building, sprawling lawns, sports grounds and staff quarters. It has a locational advantage as it is in the close proximity to the University of Delhi. The lush Ashoka Gardens, right in front of the college add to the ecological environment of the college.

The solar indoor light luminaries, wireless Internet access under the University Wide Networking Programme, separate vast Internet connectivity and supplementary audio-video gadgets, two air conditioned Lecture Theatres, a beautifully furnished seminar room, a modern computerized library, two well-equipped computer labs, an active placement cell and many other facilities put the college in league with the most up-to-date institutions of the University of Delhi.

Lakshmibai College is proud of the academic commitment of its faculty, which has several achievements to its credit and has made valuable contribution to the creation of a congenial academic ethos. Our students are deeply conscious of the leadership potential of women and they are constantly inspired to build a community devoid of discrimination and oppression. Studentsí creativity is evident in wide ranging co-curricular and extra-curricular activities organized by the various societies and associations working under the guidance of the staff advisors. Lt.(Dr.) Seema Kaushik working as assistant professor in the department of physical education and sports, has secured Gold medal in 4x400m. relay and a bronze in 400m. race in the 16th Asian Masters Championship held at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; represented India in the 19th World Masters Athletics Championship held at Sacramento, USA; and has been awarded the DG-NCCís Commendation Card. Dr. Anita Malhotra from the Department of Food Technology was awarded USAIDís Measure Evaluation Fellowship and education scholarship grant by the Howard Foundation. Ms. Sonica Singhi from the Department of Economics is on study leave for a Masterís Course at University of Nottingham under the Faculty Training Programme of University of Delhi.

The dynamic sports wing of our college has brought many laurels to the college at various levels of competition. This year we are amongst the top two best performing colleges in sports at the University level by winning first position in Baseball, Cricket, Volleyball, Power-lifting & Weight-lifting; second in Judo, Softball, Taekwondo, Wrestling & Yoga; and third in Chess.

During the current session, Ms. Mamta secured Gold medal in World Kabaddi Championship; Dhanwanti stood III in World Senior Artistic Yoga Championship and Ms. Preeti Tyagi attended Jr. India Camp in Kabaddi. The vibrant and vivacious Natioanl Cadet Corps (NCC) wing is equally scaling new height every year. CDT Rajkamal and CDT Prarthna Sharma made us proud by becoming a member of the NCC Contingent on the prestigious Republic Day Parade 2012 at Rajpath. In addition, ten cadets were the part of Prime Ministerís Rally in different activities including para-sailing, para-slithering, drill and cultural programme.

The National Service Scheme (NSS) of the college has won tremendous acclaim through dedicated community service by trying to reach out to the under-privileged, physically and visually challenged sections of the society. Our student Ezra Dogra won II prize in the Inter College Classical Dance Competition.

The Academic results of our college have also improved remarkably. Ms. Naveen topped and secured gold medal in B.A. (Programme) in the year 2009; while Ms. Chetna stood II in B.A.(Hons.) Sankrit in 2007; Maths students too brought laurels to the college, where, Ms. Poonam topped the University few years back; and Ms. Ruchi Bansal stood II in the University in Philosophy (Hons.) II year. Many of our students are working in good organisations in good positions. The college is moving ahead in the direction of Women Empowerment in the true sense.

As we look back into the history of 47 years, we feel a sense of pride and satisfaction that the college has carved a niche for itself in the field of education in liberal arts and social sciences for women. The college is an extended college with about 3000 students on rolls. The college utilizes its resources to the optimum. On Sundays and other holidays, it is a teaching centre for the Non-Collegiate Womenís Education Board.

Lakshmibai College is committed to academic excellence and the values of humanism. We train our students towards self-governance and encourage the overall development of their personality. Energy and vitality for college activities comes from a collective sense of purpose, comradeship and social solidarity. It is a matter of great satisfaction and pride for all of us associated with Lakshmibai College that we have grown not only in size, but also in the right direction, widening our horizons to achieve new heights.
