Maitreyi College, a constituent College of the University of Delhi, was founded in 1967 by Delhi Administration. The College community is proud to bear the name of Maitreyi, who was an eminent scholar of the Vedic period who was the wife of sage Yajnavalakya. Maitreyi chose knowledge over worldly possessions, when asked by her husband to make a choice between the two; the dialogue between Maitreyi and Yajnavalakya in Brihadaranyaka Upanishad shows her as an empowered woman, determined to attain self realization through knowledge. It has been our objective to weave these values into the fabric of our education system which is a blend of the best of tradition and modernity.
