Welcome message from the Principal

It is my privilege and pleasure to warmly welcome the students, Staff and all others who visit this portal either because they are associated with JMC in any way, or are desirous of knowing more about this illustrious institution. The JMC website endeavors to give to its visitors an in-depth overview of the college from the time of its inception to the present. A tour of the website will reveal a wealth of information and provide a comprehensive profile of the college.

As an institution run by the religious Sisters of the Congregation of Jesus and Mary, the college upholds the values and ideals of Saint Claudine Thevenet, the foundress of the Congregation. Claudine lived through the troubled times of the French Revolution and was deeply moved by the atrocities and miseries that she witnessed. Convinced that only knowledge and love of God could transform the society, her aim was to make God known and loved through Christian education of the young, especially the poor. She founded the Congregation of the religious of Jesus and Mary in 1818 in Lyon, France. The Congregation has spread far and wide into all continents since then. In 1842, the R.J.M Sisters came to India, and Jesus and Mary College was established in 1968 as a constituent college of Delhi University imparting higher education in the fields of Arts and Commerce.

The College began with the vision of educating young women to help them bring about development in themselves, their homes and society. We at JMC are committed to give our students a sense of God and the ability to recognize the Divine in themselves and their fellow beings, and to thus respect the dignity and uniqueness of each individual. We welcome students of all faiths, religions and strata of society, and our endeavour has been to offer an integrated, all round education, that focuses on the intellectual, cultural, social and spiritual development of our students to make them compassionate and committed human beings. Thus, it has been our constant effort to not only maintain high academic standards but also provide opportunities for participation in extra- curricular and social outreach activities.

It is a matter of great pride for us that JMC completed fifty wonderful years of its journey and celebrated its Golden jubilee in 2018. I would like to thank all those who have been a part of this journey and contributed towards the growth and development of the institution. As the journey progresses, I pray that JMC continues to grow and evolve, fulfilling its mission of partnering in the creation of a just and inclusive society.

May God Almighty always keep the institution in His care and His grace be with all of us.
