ABOUT THE COLLEGE
Iswar Saran Post Graduate College, a premier constituent college of the University of Allahabad came into existence in 1970 under the aegis of Harijan Sewak Sangh founded by Late Munshi Iswar Saran, a close associate Mahatama Gandhi. The bonding and association of Late Munshi Iswar Saran ji with Mahatama Gandhi was so strong that Mahatama Gandhi visited the campus twice which accorded the heritage significance to our institution, Later on as a tribute to our founder, the society was renamed as Iswar Saran Ashram. In its initial phase, the Arts Faculty started with ten subjects but within a couple of years two more subjects- Medieval and Modern History and Philosophy were also included. The successful growth and development of the institution encouraged the management to approach the University to seek affiliation for B.Com which was sanctioned in 1976. Science Faculty with B.Sc. in Mathematics and Computer Science was added in 1994. The college gradually and steadily expanded its horizon by introducing B.Sc. in Bio-groups in the year 2000 followed by various other certificate courses. This enabled the institute to develop more effectively the human resource required to face the future challenges and concerns of the country and contribute to society in general. The prime motive of the institution is to impart education with two vibrant units; Gandhi Study Circle and Gandhi Memorial Library as integral part of it. The college imparts higher education in three streams; Arts, Commerce, Social Sciences, B.Voc. and Legal Studies with the maximum emphasis on quality didactics and higher moral values to keep pace with the global and national demands.
Apart from this, the college also runs several vocational courses approved by UGC under different faculties viz. Computer Application, Computer and Electronic Equipment Maintenance and six add-on courses like mobile repairing, e-commerce, watershed management, microbial bio-fertilizer : production and utilization, computer application ‘O’ level diploma, and library science.
The college sprawls over 50 acre of land with rich infrastructural setup including adequate number of lecture halls, smart classes, well equipped laboratories, general library, reference library, computer centre, conference hall, multimedia centre, gymnasium, sports complex, student health centre, career guidance cell, Grievance cell and women cell etc. A Botanical garden and conservatory has also been established to conserve rare and threatened plants of the region. Such an infrastructural setup has generated work culture, academic and research milieu in the college conductive to the pursuit of studies and producing top rankers in academic and outreach activities of the University/college. The college also has a NCC Coy for boys and 1 Coy for girls, and 10 NSS Units both for boys and girls.
