The efforts of the college in the diverse fields with proper spirit got national recognition when UGC bestowed on the college a unique honour of "Centre with Potential for Excellence". Our endeavor is to make individuals more mature, responsible and socially aware.
APGC, a premier institute of higher education in Panipat started its journey towards excellence in the year 1954 when Babu Jagjivan Ram Ji, the then Union Minister of Communication inaugurated it with a sole aim of leading the youth "From darkness unto Light". We dedicate this mega achievement to all those who manage, run or constitute this college, as well as our patrons and well-wishers.
During the IX plan period, the University Grants Commission had introduced a scheme called "University with Potential for Excellence" (UPE) to encourage selected universities to reach world class standards in their chosen domain(s). The commission also realised that some colleges have also achieved better standards of teaching and research by harnessing human and physical resources in innovative ways. Recognizing the need to pay special attention to such colleges, the commission introduced a scheme during Xth plan called "College with Potential for Excellence (CPE)". The purpose of the scheme was to identify the colleges which have attained high standards in teaching, research, extension activities and hold promise of excellence. In response to the invitation of proposal by the UGC through affiliating university, our college submitted the detailed proposal to the Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra which went through three stages of evaluation. In the first stage Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra evaluated the proposals submitted by the colleges affiliated to it and recommended the proposals of deserved colleges to the UGC.
In the second stage, the special committee on CPE constituted by the UGC evaluated the recommended proposals of colleges by all affiliating universities and recommended only 260 colleges at National level.
In the final stage, only 149 colleges including our college spreading over all states/union territories of India were recommended for the award of CPE status by a standing committee on CPE constituted by UGC.
The dedicated management, committed and qualified staff, disciplined and diligent students deserved this achievement, aspired it and ultimately the UGC recognized and declared it. Heartiest congratulations to the citizens of Panipat City and to all those who have the pride to be the part of this great institution.
