“If you educate a man you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman you educate a nation”

Beginning with just six students, Respected Smt. Mahadevi Bhatnagar along with her philanthropist husband Shri Jyoti Swaroop Bhatnagar, sowed the seed of girl education 15 September 1902, by laying the foundation of Mahadevi Kanya Pathshala, now popularly known as MKP. The seed planted by her has now grown into a huge Banyan tree. Today M.K.P. (P.G.) College, Dehradun is one of the most prestigious institutions in Uttarakhand with the motto “Ritay Gyananam Mukti” meaning Knowledge that provides Enlightenment and Salvation.

The College is located in the heart of the city and is known for its sound academics and vibrant extracurricular activities.

Our mission, at MKP, is to build girl leadership by nurturing self-directed women, empowered by skills, knowledge and wisdom, instilled with the zeal to serve the Nation. We firmly believe that it is a woman’s fundamental right to work and earn as equal partners in society, so that not only the community but the whole nation flourishes, for there is no greater pillar or stability than a strong whole nation flourishes, for there is no greater pillar or stability than a strong, free and educated woman in society.

Thus M.K.P. believes in imparting holistic education to girls in addition to formal education that we impart within the University framework.
