S.D (PG) College,  Muzaffarnagar

S. D. (PG) College, Muzaffarnagar (affiliated to Ch. Ch. Singh University, Meerut) is one of the premier institution of Western Uttar Pradesh. It is managed by a registered body viz. S. D. College Association which also supervises several other technical and educational institutes as well as social welfare associations. The college enjoys a glorious past, an impressive present and the vision of a very bright future. ‘March Forward’ is not just a slogan here but a time-tested tradition. At present several ambitious projects are on cards and are likely to take shape in near future.

This institution was founded by Sri Omkar Prasad Bisaria exactly a century ago (i.e. 1909). In 1915 it became the first govt.-aided High School in Distt. Muzaffarnagar. Since then it has been making continuous progress and has resin to the level of a prestigious post-graduate college imparting education in almost all the streams of the three faculties of Arts, Science and Commerce. Besides these, the college runs classes in B. Sc. (Home Science), B. Sc. (Computer Application) and B. Com (Tourism and Tour Management). A Centre of IGNOU (Indira Gandhi National Open University) New Delhi has already been established on the campus. At present over 6000 students are on roll in the college. The campus is spread over 22.07 acre and comprises sufficient number of lecture theatres, well equipped laboratories, a vast multi-storied library, an administrative block, an imposing auditorium and the teacher’s quarter. The majestic main gate and the bank are other attractions of the college.

The great height that S. D. College has touched and spectacular progress it has recorded in various fields are the result of the selfless service and dedication of several luminaries who are no more. At present affairs of the college are being managed by an executive committee consisting of 16 members devoted to the welfare and on-going progress of the college headed by Sh. Somansh Prakash as President and Sh. Deepak Kumar as its secretary.
Fortunately the Principal Dr. Dinesh Kumar himself has been a student of this college from 1968 to 1972. After completing his M.A. in Political Science with highest marks in his batch he graduated in Education from Central Institute of Education (CIE) Delhi University. Later he earned his M.Phil and Ph.D degrees from the Institute of Advanced Studies, Meerut University. Widely exposed to academic activities he began his teaching career as a lecturer from GVN college, Budhpur Ramala in 1973 then joined at SSV college Hapur in 1974 there from he left for BSM (PG) college, Roorkee, where he taught for 26 years till he left it for Principalship at GMV, Rampur Maniharan (Saharanpur) in 2000 for a couple of years before joining here as Principal in March 2002. He topped the list of successful candidates selected for the Principalship of Post-Graduate College in 1999 in his category and perhaps is the only example of having been selected thrice by the U.P. Higher Education Service Commission for this job.
