These illustrious citizens of Bangalore established the college in 1972, in response to the persistent demands of the residents of North Bangalore for an exclusive women's college in their neighborhood. MLACW (now mLAC) is located in the heart of Bangalore city at Malleshwaram. The college made a humble beginning, with just 12 students on its rolls and, a government school building as its workspace. The college has grown from strength to strength over the past three decades and, it now addresses over 3,500 students.
