Khalsa College is a premier institution unparalleled
in present times. The College is looking ahead at another educationally
eventful and constructive century. When this great institution was
established in 1892, it was destined to play a very significant role
in the lives of the people of Punjab and India. A look at its achievements
fills us with pride at its long and glorious academic, cultural and
sports history. Its distinguished alumni from all walks of life include
well-known Vice-Chancellors and educationists, able administrators,
highly decorated army generals, scientists of distinction and Asian
and Olympian sportsmen. The college is accredited with 'A'
grade by NAAC
(National Assessment and Accreditation Council). It is affiliated
to Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar (India). The college offers
a wide variety of courses keeping abreast with present times. The
college offers Graduate and Post graduate degree programs in Agriculture,
Computers, Sciences, Arts, Commerce, Languages and Physiotherapy.
It is the oldest institution offering B.Sc Agriculture (Hons.) degree
program in North India.
Khalsa College has a stamp of superior quality on it. Its magnificent
heritage building, its lush green grounds, its all round and studious
students, its tireless teachers and its far-sighted and munificent
Management Committee have contributed to the making of the legend
of Khalsa College. Modern age is an age of merit and performance.
It is turning in fast changes and bringing forth new challenges every
moment. Universities are spreading their wings and boundaries are
melting in this age of global competitions and compatibilities. TQM
is the order of the day. We have already made a beginning by adding
a variety of new courses for wider choice and application in new times.
We have to match the new Computer and Information Technology revolution
with a new educational renaissance.
So, our endeavor
should be to add new dimensions to this vibrant center of excellence
so that it keeps growing meaningfully. We know that the pursuit of
excellence is an on-growing process. Every day counts in it and we
have to justify each day we spend here. The road ahead is clear and
well-lighted. Let us strive for it, let us seek it and let us make
it a reality.
As you are well aware
of the changing times and the advances in the Information age this
is an effort to bring Khalsa College online through the Internet and make it
accessible throughout the world using this powerful medium.
