Message from Chairperson
Greetings from Ethiraj College for Women.
As early as 1948, when our Founder Shri V.L. Ethiraj took the soul-stirring decision to invest his entire savings on establishing an institution of higher education, especially for marginalized women, he emerged as an agent of social change. A college is the vehicle that the youth rely on the most, to learn and advance knowledge. The vehicle we have built here is an enormously powerful one and has been highly productive over the past 65 years.
With the firm belief that the goal of true education is holistic development, the College ensures imparting values, ethics and confidence in young women to harness their full potential, thereby creating the social capital necessary for establish.
In this great College, our students are surrounded by astonishing resources - fascinating fellow students from all over India, a learned and caring faculty, a well- stocked library, superb sport facilities and extra-curricular opportunities covering every conceivable interest – from arts to sports and from entrepreneurship to community service. They will have complete freedom to explore, learn about new subjects, meet new people and pursue new passions. I want to encourage our students, in every way that I can, to make the most of this rare and unique opportunity.
The Management carries out directive, operational and evaluative functions by promoting a participative culture and collective leadership. With a clear perception of its vision and mission, Ethiraj College for Women establishes itself as an ‘on the move’ organisation, aiming at excellence in every sphere of institutional life. It is the two key factors - inclusion and innovation - that have endowed us with the coveted status of College with Potential for Excellence and serve as a spur to achieve further higher academic standards.
I welcome you to search the never ending arch of amalgamated knowledge, walk the untrodden path, seizing opportunities never thought of as possible and be a beacon for generations to come.
