About Gargi College

Gargi College was established in the year 1967 and is a leading South Campus college of the University of Delhi. It is a college for women and offers education in Arts and Humanities, Commerce, Science and Education.

Gargi College was named after an enlightened woman named Gargi, figuring in the Brihadaranyaka Upanishada of the Vedic Age. She emerges as an intelligent and bold person embodying the spirit of inquiry juxtaposed with faith as is shown by her penetrating and challenging questions to the great sage Yajnavalkya. In the Upanishad Gargi seems to represent the intellectual potential of the race of Homo sapiens, which continues to manifest itself , in quest of ever-widening fields of knowledge.

Our college has been named after Gargi Vachaknavi, a sagacious and enlightened philosopher of the 7th Century who was ahead of her times and exemplified scholarly excellence, fearless astuteness, divergent thinking and the relentless ability to question. We cherish the same tradition and encourage our students to challenge themselves, be sceptical and ask questions in this fast- pacing and ever evolving world. We started our humble journey way back in the year 1967 as a women’s college with 207 students, two courses and a faculty strength of 16 members.
