Our Vision, Mission & Values


Faculty Profile

From the Principal’s Desk:

I welcome you on behalf of the staff as well as the office bearers of the Management to Uma Arts & Nathiba Commerce Mahila College, Gandhinagar, affiliated to Gujarat University Ahmadabad. The aim of education, as it has been accepted by all of us today, is not to enable the individual to get employment only, but to impart values, to help the student to grow by bringing out his/her own inner potentialities and capacities.

The vision of our college is “to attain social upliftment by empowering women through value-based education”. The number of students coming from urban areas of Gandhinagar and Ahmadabad remains equal to the number of students coming from the nearby villages as well as far off places of Gujarat. Students coming from far off places take advantage of the girls’ hostel situated in the campus itself. The college provides support to all the female students of the college by conducting regular curricular activities along with a host of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities in the college.

We aim at enriching students’ experience at the college at its utmost level. We wish that the years they spend in this college may become fruitful, that they gain in terms of knowledge, skill enhancement and personality development. It is a matter of pleasure for us that our alumni are doing us proud both in India and abroad.

In all our endeavours, we have been attempting to fulfil the vision of NAAC which is “To make quality the defining element of higher education in India through a combination of self and external quality evaluation, promotion and sustenance initiatives”.


Our college has been accredited by NAAC with B++ Grade in 2006 and with A Grade (CGPA – 3.21) in NAAC Reaccreditation (Cycle-2) in 2011. The college has also undergone the process of AAA (Academic and Administrative Audit) conducted by Knowledge Consortium of Gujarat (KCG), Government of Gujarat in 2017 and obtained A Grade. In NAAC Reaccreditation (Cycle-3) the college has again obtained Grade: A (CGPA – 3.32) in 2017.
 Post-accreditation reform processes have been significant to us due to the collaborative efforts of the leadership of the Management, well designed and implemented action plan of the IQAC and the team work of our faculties, administrative staff, students and alumni of our college.


As a result of constant efforts made by all of us to constantly scale greater and still greater heights, the college has been awarded with the status of College with Potential for Excellence, Phase I, by the University Grants Commission, New Delhi, in 2011. .The UGC expert committee has also awarded our college the status of CPE Phase II from April 2017.
Recently,  Education Department, Government of Gujarat has awarded our college “ for Excellence in National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) for betterment of Education, Society and Nation in the category of Grant- in -aid College (Non- Technical) at Grand Education Fair- 2018” on  2nd February,2018.


With the active support of the UGC CPE grant and the matching share of the Management as well as the motivating policies of the Department of Higher Education, Government of Gujarat through Knowledge Consortium of Gujarat (KCG), the quality of education provided in our college has seen remarkable enhancement due to augmented infrastructure, faculty development programmes, students enrichment programmes and outreach activities conducted by the college as part of Institutional Social Responsibility (ISR) in the villages situated in Gandhinagar district.


We hope to continue the tradition and contribute something meaningful to the nation through the same quality initiatives and social service.
