Guru Nanak Girls College, Santpura, Yamunanagar was established in 1973 by the great visionary and philanthropist, Sant Pandit Nischal Singh ji Maharaj. In an era when girls were confined within the barriers of domesticity, Sant ji initiated this noble task of educating them and thereby opening before them new vistas of knowledge and self- sufficiency. Firm on his arduous mission of emancipating women from the shackles which illiteracy force upon them, Sant ji planted this sapling which today has blossomed into a premier multi-faculty postgraduate institution.
The dogged pursuit of excellence and the ardent yearning to achieve the best has led the college to carve an exclusive niche for itself in the state of Haryana. With the highest CGPA score of 3.10 in the district Yamunanagar awarded by NAAC, the college takes pride in being one of the foremost women colleges of the state.
Affiliated to Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, the college has consistently been providing quality education in varied streams like Humanities, Science, Commerce, Information Technology, Bio-Technology, Computer Sciences, and Mass Communication & Multimedia.
