Dr. Jyoti Bhalla- the Principal of Guru Nanak College of Education, Punjabi Bagh, Delhi is Master in Science and has Doctorate in Education. She has been long associated with the field of Education as an Assistant Professor and Principal as well.
In a world where the social fabric has been riddled with a slew of ethical conundrums and humanity has allowed for the proliferation of sheer materialism and individual growth, Guru Nanak College of Education functions as a community where we realize the aim of education can never be exclusively academic and thus aim is to create an atmosphere of moral incandescence in learning process. Our endeavor is to equip our pupil-teachers with life-skills to face the real world –be it planning, organizing, and deciding with challenges confidently. At college we ensure that the values of hard work and efficiency are used as ideological weapons to train our pupil-teachers to face a world replete with stereotypical beliefs and discrimination. At the same time, knowledge and training are understood as being in constant metamorphosis and growth, thus enabling the young mind to make best of the opportunities available to them. The college ensures that each student's journey through his/her training is meaningful, exciting, relevant and extrapolative. We attempt to not only impart quality education but also create independent thinking and sensitive future leaders who are nurtured to serve as torch bearers to ignite many more minds and lead the country to the path of development with vision and dedication. With these words I welcome coming generations with open heart to be a part of this educational institution.
