[The meaning of the mantra can be presented in simple english – Speak the truth, stick to your duty (Dharm) and never
leave self-study (Swadhyaya).]
This mantra from Taittiriya Upanishad defines the goal, every educational institution including this college should strive
Swami Vivekananda opined “We want that education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded and by which one can stand on one’s own feet”. Government College Daman, with a legacy of more than half a century, since its inception has been endeavouring to actualize this goal. Our motto is to impart holistic education to the youngsters so that they will soar up amidst all trials and tribulations.
Apart from curricular development, the college focuses on the extracurricular activities of the students. The college has always been keen on fostering the talents of the students. Many of our students have made their presence known and won medals in various National and State level competitions including gold medals in university examinations.
Students are the real assets of a Nation and moulding them into responsible citizens is the role of teachers. Our College has a team of teachers who are experienced and proficient in their respective fields. Our teaching fraternity is striving hard to steer the college in its expedition to excellence.
Over the years the college has advanced and upgraded its infrastructure to meet the changing educational needs of young citizens of this Union Territory.
The college has been the alma-mater to many luminaries and in future also we are looking forward to contributing to the society by creating benevolent, academically proficient, morally enlightened and socially dedicated citizens with the mantra of राष्ट्र सर्वोपरि.(Nation is paramount).
