Founded in 1917 by the great educationist and philanthropist, Raj Kedar Nath, Ramjas College is one of the oldest colleges of Delhi . Beginning from the humble precincts of Darya Ganj in Old Delhi, the College today boasts of a spacious campus, state-of-the art infrastructure and an esteemed faculty of scholars trained at leading universities in India and abroad.
At Ramjas, we believe in holistic education that goes beyond achieving academic excellence and vocational training. Our philosophy is to realize the overall intellectual, creative, cultural and socio-political growth and development of both the students and the college community in its entirety. The College invites all students irrespective of gender, caste, religion and physical challenges to make us a rich and varied community. The College offers a wide range of courses, extra-curricular activities and technologically advanced facilities accessible to the faculty, the students and the support staff. Here, each individual is encouraged to step beyond the confines of academic and administrative disciplines to explore and intervene in the larger interests of the Ramjas Community that thrives on participation and the desire to venture into newer vistas.
Over the last five years, we have identified and invigorated our attempts to revitalize and reinvent our institution as per the recommendations made in the Report of the World Conference on Higher Education held in 1998. We have enhanced the infrastructure to cater to the needs of all our members – faculty members, administrative staff and the students alike. Today, our college is an electronically networked institution that connects the Principal, the faculty, the staff and the students for all to work in tandem towards achieving efficient growth.
Ramjas College has the best of facilities backed by the latest in modern technology, making it a world-class institute of learning and research. The College has an air-conditioned auditorium that has been graced by renowned performers from all over India and a state-of-the-art Seminar Room with multi-media facilities and LCD project systems that encourage and support research initiatives and presentations amongst the students and the faculty. An attractive cafeteria, renovated classrooms and departments with their individual computers, make our institution a unique and well-knit unit that believes in smooth and efficient functioning. The College Library is one of our most significant assets that have an online cataloguing system, which provides access to library resources countrywide. All our books are coded through dedicated software and are easily accessible through computers in the library and the departments. Free and ready access to the Internet for students and the faculty has made it possible for our college to reach higher and global levels of education and research.
Academic rigour is enshrined in every act of ours. The College applies strict performance norms through intra-departmental initiatives and interaction. The faculty members and the Principal closely follow the continuous development and performance of each student in class, mid-term examinations and preceptorials. Each student is encouraged to participate in the active corporate life of college, as it now accounts for overall evaluation as per new university regulations. The College facilitates this process by assigning to each student, a tutor/faculty advisor who will be a philosopher, friend and guide. In order to meet the requirements of this personal contact programme, the College will have eight new rooms beginning from this new academic session.
From this session, the College has also introduced some new short-term add-on courses to supplement learning in art, culture and awareness building programmes. We wish to begin with Certificate Courses (these will be upgraded to Diploma Courses in the next academic session) such as Peace and Conflict Resolution, India in the Era of Globalisation, Indian Literatures – Many Voices Within, Women and Empowerment, Gender: Analysis and Interrogation, Film Appreciation, Human Rights and Emerging World Order and Environmental Management and Law.
In the course of our working life, at times all of us have felt an urgent need to address issues that are emergent and linked to our role as gendered beings in the public domain. At Ramjas, we believe in questioning conventional and conservative opinions that are insensitive and restricting to both men and women. As part of our interventionist and pro-active initiative, we have a Gender Forum and a Women's Development Cell (WDC), which will promote awareness and educational programmes to empower all of us to enhance our position as educated and aware citizens.
Ramjas College takes pride in the fact that it has a known presence in the global world of education and research. It has tie-ups with premier foreign universities and institutions that have been organising various academic activities to promote cultural and academic exchanges between students here and abroad. In January 2004, the College organised the first ever Conference of Graduate Students of Economics from the SAARC Countries, which was given wide coverage by the media and duly appreciated by the academic community. Even in this academic session, the faculty in the College has planned a number of international events.
