Principal's Desk

Twenty-two years have gone since Pranabananda Women’s College, the 1st Women’s College in Nagaland was established in 1991. Today the college stands up with pride as it has helped thousands of students to live to its motto, “Lead us from darkness to light” by helping them to mould themselves into women of responsibility and character.


It had a very humble begining in 1991 but today the college what we see is a beautiful campus, the fruit of endless effort and generous benefactors and goodwill of numerous well wishers. For an educational institution twenty-one years is not a big period for reaching its zenith. Pranabananda Women’s College will handle generations of young women who will make Nagaland an abode of peace.


This is a milestone to be cherished in the history of the college with its objective of providing quality education to the women of Nagaland. The college is now self sustained with modern amenities for all round development of the students supported by professionally recognised and competent faculty.


With good faculty and excellent results, the number of students increased steadily year after year. The present number of students are around 1500 in the current academic session. The number of students inspite of being a purely women’s college is the testimony of its performance and steady progress. The college was initially permitted by and affiliated to North-Eastern Hill University. With the establishment of Nagaland University, the college is affiliated to it since 1994. Now the college enjoys the status of permanent affiliation and is recognised by UGC under article 2(f) and 12(b). The college is also proud of its excellent results in NBSE and NU examinations. The excellent academic performance stands as a testimony to the quality of teaching-learning process, the general learning environment and a sense of discipline and dedication of the faculty and staff to their duties.


Today Pranabananda Women’s College has an identity, a name we can be proud of. It stands as a symbol of dedication, hard work and resultant victory. While remembering the vision of the founders, the dedication of the teachers and the services by so many workers on the campus, I congratulate the staff and member of the governing body of the college for their continued efforts to make the college a distinct and renowned institution of higher education. Long live Pranabananda Women’s College.
