DAV College Sector-10, Chandigarh was founded in 1958, when the
city of Chandigarh was in its infancy. The college has grown with the city, becoming
an integral part of the region's socio-cultural milieu.
The college belongs to the family of the famous D.A.V. institutions, founded by
Mahatma Hans Raj, and inspired by the great visionary-Swami Dayanand Saraswati-the
doyen of the Arya Samaj who believed that, "True education consists in promoting
knowledge, civilized manners, virtuous character, self-control and other moral qualities
and in dispelling ignorance".
He had always felt that the scientific knowledge of the west needs to be absorbed
in the cultural milieu of India. The D.A.V. movement, which started in 1886, gives
a practical shape to the ideals of Swami Dayanand's educational philosophy which
aims to develop a modern scientific approach among the students, coupled with an
understanding of their roots in the ancient Vedic Culture. The D.A.V. College, Chandigarh
is trying to bring about this synthesis by imparting to the students the best of
new world humanistic, scientific and technical knowledge with the sense of history
of their rich cultural heritage-the Anglo and Vedic values. We work to achieve these
DAV College Chandigarh is a premier institution of North India. Students from all
