Dev Samaj, a unique religious movement, was founded in 1887, by the most worshipful Master BHAGWAN DEV ATMA, the great and illustrious founder of Dev Samaj who realised that it is the place of women in the society that determines the level of civilisation and that the future of women lays in education. He made women education one of the chief planks of Dev Samaj's contribution to social reforms. The college has been striving to maintain the high ideals of its founding father who sought the regeneration of mankind and transformation of society through women's education for the period over a century.
Dev Samaj College of Education for Women was established in 1942. It was the first non-governmental Teachers' Training College in the whole of United Punjab. The college has made a mark not only in academics but also in the field of multi-dimensional co-curricular activities. The Message of Bhagwan Dev Atma is :-
" I want to make this world a Paradise. I want to usher in the system of Dharma, here in this World, that would sound Death-knell to all sins and evils and make people so truthful and trustworthy in their relations ---------------------that human life becomes fully Sweet and Blissful.
My mission is to infuse new life in man, to redeem him from evil life and so to purify his relation with others that he becomes an heir to the blessing of the true life of the Dharma."
