Lady Irwin College in July 2013 implemented the Four Year Undergraduate Program (FYUP) in Home Science and also offered four year B.Tech in Food Technology. Newer technologies were being adopted for good quality education delivery system. In Antardhvani 2014, the College received First Prize in Best Teaching Practices at Delhi University. Although the Four Year Program did not continue, it left several innovative teaching practices and technologies which will continue. Some traditional interdisciplinary systems at Lady Irwin College are revealing newer potentials. I hope this meets growing expectation of academic society and meets developmental demands. All UG and PG programs are delivered in Semester Mode except B.Ed. which still adopts annual mode due to dependence of school exposure.

The College education adopts several innovative projects for community participation and improving their quality of life. Some of these innovative projects are funded by Delhi University and involve UG students. Educational excursions are taken by every Department. This has given impetus to experiential learning and added enthusiasm in student community. Our philosophy of education emphasizes reaching out to the marginalized groups with focus on research and extension. The College received Nina Sibal Award in August 2014 for its extension, research and teaching in the area of disability and preparing teacher cadre in this area. The College also forays into international interactions, task forces and student exchange programs. It also hosts Fulbright Fellows and Faculty.

A lot is expected in these times with rapidly changing pedagogies and I hope the teachers and student continue to work hard. Their perseverance will ensure good quality professional skills among students, something that this country deserves and needs. We at Lady Irwin College pay rich tribute to our Founders and mentors and take an oath to give our very best to uphold values and strengthen portal of quality higher education.
