From the Principals Desk
Innovation and inclusion being the key values of any institution in a globalized era, educational institutions cannot be an exception. As early as 1948, our Founder Shri V.L. Ethiraj, an eminent lawyer and educational missionary, has set the quality parameter for inclusive education, by taking the soul-stirring decision to invest his entire savings on establishing a higher educational institution for the women, marginalized in a patriarchal society.
Today, the College stands proud with 69 years of splendid achievement and commitment to the mission of empowering young women through holistic education. It owes its present position of eminence to the dynamic Boards of Trustees, dedicated Principals, faculty members and vibrant students who contribute their mite to the sustenance and enhancement of the quality of the institution.
With a strength of more than 7000 students today, the College continues the tradition of inclusion and benevolence by going beyond the conventional mode and integrating it at various levels. Beginning with the inclusive enrolment of diverse learners from different social, economic, religious and cultural backgrounds and differently-abled students, to the merging of wider community in all activities, the College takes every step to institutionalize and internalize inclusion.
With its firm belief in quality enhancement, it does not spare any effort to experiment with novel ideas and innovative practices in curriculum designing and instructional strategies to ensure sustainable human development. Taking into cognizance the dynamic societal changes fuelled by technological development and globalization, and the consequent paradigm shifts in several fields, efficient and effective use of technology and quality research culture are aimed at, befitting the status of College with Potential for Excellence.
According to Paulo Freire, a Brazilian educationist and philosopher, “Education becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world”. Our aim is to create worthy students who turn out to be, not only successful citizens, but also good human beings who will go the extra mile to transform this world for the better.
I solicit the support and goodwill of all the stakeholders in our endeavour.
