Performance of the institution in one area distinctive to its vision, priority and thrust

Women empowerment is an area of priority and concern for GPGC, Noida. Women constitute more than 60% of the total student strength of the college. The majority of them belong to the underprivileged section of society. With limited means in their family, they are often socially and economically deprived. The college aspires to provide them an atmosphere where they can build their confidence and learn to take decisions independently. For this purpose, the Women Cell, Career Counselling Cell, Anti-Ragging Cell, Proctorial Board, and Mentor-Mentee system are operated with a special focus on the needs and requirements of the girl students. Awareness programs on gender issues are organized to enable the students to realize their full potential for learning and solving their problems independently.

Debates and discussions are held on gender equality to enable the students to realize gender sensitization, thus leading to more equality and harmony in family and society. There is one NCC unit for girls and one unit of NSS and Rangers respectively. Girls are encouraged to join these institutions to develop in them leadership qualities and prepare them for the challenges in their future. In the parents-teachers meet the parents are counselled by the teachers about the benefits of extra-curricular activities for the students especially girls so that they encourage their wards to actively participate in the college programs. As a result, girls generally participate in larger numbers than boys in the activities – cultural, academic, and sports- organised by the college. Even academically girls have performed better than boys in recent years.
