I welcome you to Government College Women University Sialkot (GCWUS), a prime partaker in imparting education to women in Sialkot, the city of Allama Muhammad Iqbal, Faiz Ahmed Faiz, and many other prominent figures in almost all fields of life. Established in 1951 as a college, it is one of the oldest colleges in Pakistan and Sialkot’s oldest institution of higher learning. From a humble beginning, it emerged as Sialkot’s most distinguished and iconic educational institution for girls, resulting in its up-graduation as a University in 2013. This prestigious seat of learning is striving hard to impart quality education to Pakistani women to meet national and global challenges toward accomplishing its mission, i.e., to produce a women workforce to cater to the country’s current and future needs. The degree of GCWU, Sialkot, represents, reflects, and guarantees certification of competence, beneficial employment, dignified livelihood, sustained prosperity, and a well-groomed personality of the students. The graduates from here can handle challenges posed in their future academic and professional lives with confidence, dignity, and proficiency. The project of Aiman Abad Campus, after its completion, will also provide world-class education to local, national, and international students. GC Women University, Sialkot, is dedicated to promoting quality education in many contemporary disciplines.

Our challenge for the future is to establish ourselves among the nation’s leading Universities through academic excellence and research output. I hope you will support us in our endeavors aimed at women empowerment amply reflected in Quid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah’s words:

“There are two powers in the world; one is sword and the other one is pen. There is a great competition and rivalry between the two. There is a third power stronger than both, that of the Women.”
جُرأت ہے تو افکار کی دنیا سے گزر جا
ہیں بحرِ خودی میں ابھی پوشیدہ جزیرے
کھُلتے نہیں اس قُلزُمِ خاموش کے اسرار
جب تک تُو اسے ضربِ کلیمی سے نہ چِیرے
(بال جبریل)
