Since its inception in 1966, Jyoti Nivas College has remained steadfast to one central commitment- to provide a balanced, comprehensive education in Arts, Science and Commerce, aimed at turning out intellectually enlightened, morally upright, spiritually oriented and socially committed young persons. Jyoti Nivas College retains a steadfast commitment to a single central ideal- the provision of a balanced and holistic education for women. As a Christian college for women, challenged by revolutionary changes in every sphere of life, Jyoti Nivas College is aware that higher education involves infinitely more than acquisition of a mere qualification.

While providing their students with higher quality of academic instruction and state of the art infrastructure which keeps abreast of the latest in science and technology, we also lay emphasis on the formation of the personal conscience, on the development of a strong code of ethics and values as well as openness of mind which hungers to know and learn from “the best that is known and thought in the world.” Its faculty members possess not only fine minds and scholarly expertise, but also a strong commitment to teaching as a vocation, while employing the best of innovative methods and technology in their teaching practice. The Mentor-Ward system, one of the outstanding practices of this institution, promotes and sustains a strong one-on-one interaction between teachers and students in an atmosphere of care and concern.
