The International College for Girls (ICG), a pioneer institution for women education, was founded in the year 1995 as an affiliated college to the University of Rajasthan. Started with just 56 girls and seven members of staff, it became a Post-Graduate College in 1999. Today, ICG stands tall with over 3110 students on roll, 144 faculty members and 46 support-staff (technical & non-teaching).
Our pursuit for excellence in higher education got due recognition by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). ICG has became the only college in Rajasthan which is accredited A+ by the NAAC, an autonomous institution of the University Grants Commission (UGC). The college has also been identified as a Model College by the Government of Rajasthan. In a survey conducted by A.C. Nielson for ‘India Today' the college has been rated best in the state in all the faculties.
A major milestone in the history of ICG is the conferment of the Autonomous Status on the college by the UGC for a period of six years w.e.f. 2007-08. The Autonomy is a concept created and evolved by the UGC for qualitative enhancement of higher education. It was realized that the higher academic institutions be given more freedom for the development of intellectual climate in the country. Autonomy enables the college:
• To restructure and redesign the curricula.
• To prescribe rules for admission.
• To ensure academic and operative freedom to the faculty members.
• To evolve methods of assessment of student's performance, conduction of exams and preparation of results.
• To use modern tools of educational technology.
• To promote healthy practices.
ICG has earned the CPE status i.e. a "Colleges with Potential for Excellence". Our college is one among the 50 colleges in India identified by the University Grants Commission (UGC) under the CPE scheme during phase-II.
The latest feather in the cap is the conferment of the status of a deemed to be university by the Ministry of Human Resource Development under section 3 of UGC Act, 1956. International College for Girls is now The IIS University, Jaipur.
