Aditi Mahavidyalaya, one of the premier institutions of higher education, was founded in 1994. Aditi in Indian mythology means the Mother Earth who gave birth to the Puranic Gods. Aditi Mahavidyalaya too, fortunately, still has the feel of the nature. So it is not a mere coincidence that Aditi Mahavidyalaya was founded to honour the strength of Indian women and to bring out the talent latent in the daughters of the raw ethnic India. Aditi Mahavidyalaya aims to bring diverse streams of college education to the students of the northwest Delhi. This mahavidyalaya is a trailblazer of sorts in recognizing and fostering the talents in educationally underprivileged groups as well. The courses run by Aditi Mahavidyalaya are designed to impart the students with relevant knowledge and skills well suited to the students to become self-reliant. Professional courses like Bachelor of Elementary Education (B.El.Ed.) and Bachelor with Honours in Hindi Patrkarita Evam Jansanchar empower the students in getting a secured job. There are other academic courses too like Bachelor with Honours in Commerce, English, Geography, History, Hindi, Home Science, Political Science and Social Work.
