Miranda House, University of Delhi through MH-Vatavaran Eco Club
Miranda House, residential college for women, is one of the premier Women’s Institutions of Delhi University and has been declared as the Best College in India. Miranda House was founded in 1948 by the then Vice-Chancellor Sir Maurice Gwyer; its foundation stone was laid by Lady Edwina Mountbatten on March 7 in the same year. Miranda offers liberal education in humanities and science to more than 2500 students. The faculty is renowned for their meritorious profile, versatile talent and dedication to the cause of education. The college has produced women who have excelled in various professions and have contributed in numerous ways to society at large.
The college has always maintained high academic standards. What is more important is the space it has provided to the students to freely express and develop views that help them respond to changes in society. Its proximity to other campus colleges enables students to participate in the academic and cultural events that take place around it.
The organisers would also like to thank the citizens of Delhi for their generous support towards the hosting of this Summit.
