Mrs. Sushma Paul Berlia
Chairman - Apeejay Education Society
It gives me immense pleasure to note that Apeejay College of Fine Arts (ACFA), Jalandhar has had more than four decades of academic excellence. Known for making giant strides both in scholastic and co-scholastic domains, ACFA has been catering to the educational needs of the region for the last four decades through its mission of nation-building and man-making. Right from its inception in 1975, the College has shown tremendous commitment and dedication to the cause of quality education and holistic development of the youth.
ACFA is a unique institution devoted to traditional as well as Modern Arts. Indeed, it is an oasis of culturally sensitive education in the region and one of the premier institutions of North India. It has been granted the status of ‘College with Potential for Excellence/College of Excellence’ by the University Grants Commission, New Delhi. It is also recognized as a Centre for Excellence, specialized to preserve & teach cultural heritage to a new generation of students and A Grade by NAAC which speaks volumes for the glorious legacy & achievements of this Numero Uno Institution.
We, at ACFA, are alive not only to the present educational needs of our nation but also to the forthcoming challenges and hurdles that the posterity of the nation is to face. In this context, it has been our first and foremost endeavor to legislate and execute a futuristic education, essentially suitable to the aspirations and expectations of a 21st Century student. Thus, we are constantly moving from a glorious yesterday to a still better tomorrow.
The College has been continuously touching the meteoric heights as the undisputed winner of Youth Festivals for 16 years at a stretch. Our victory in the National Zone for 9 years and participation in the international SAUFEST further narrate the incredible saga of ACFA’s stunning success-journey. I wish and pray that Apeejay College of Fine Arts, Jalandhar may always be ‘strong in will, to strive, to succeed, to find and not to yield’.
I welcome the new entrants to this pioneer College whose mission is to produce not just competent professionals but also responsible citizens of tomorrow. I am positively hopeful that you will have a cherishable stay in this College.
