I deem it my special privilege to welcome you to our College, which recently crossed the fifty year mark in its glorious history. Founded by philanthropists and social workers who took it upon astheir life’s mission to create opportunities of higher education for the local people, the institution has always striven to enrich the life of its larger community. It has built up a reputation as one of the leading colleges of the state, providing quality education to young aspirants in the Arts, Science, Commerce, and Management streams. Besides Under-Graduate courses in these streams, the College is also running a Post-Graduate Studies Center, which offers MA (Economics), M Com and M Sc (Mathematics) courses. Last year, we introduced a new, unique course – a One-Year Diploma Course in Theater Arts & Stagecraft as part of the Community College Project sponsored by the UGC. Ours is one of the very few colleges across the whole of India to be granted this project.
Located in serene, beautiful, natural surroundings, the College has the best kind of material and human resources. It has excellent library, laboratory, audio-visual, hostel, and canteen facilities. It is served by highly qualified and dedicated teachers and office staff. All these make for an incomparably student-friendly environment. The College has enabled thousands of students excel not only in academics but in cultural and sports activities too. Our alumni have gone on to make a mark not only as professionals in a large variety of fields but also as socially conscious and committed citizens.
Our College has earned recognition at the highest levels for its achievements and services. The University Grants Commission granted the College autonomous status in 2005-06, and after evaluating its subsequent performance, has extended the same for the next five years. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) recently re-accredited the College, awarding it “B” Grade with CGPA 2.76 points. While the College feels very proud about such honors, it also sees it as an opportunity to serve the local community with a greater sense of responsibility and dedication. Once again, I heartily welcome you all to our College. Studying here, I promise you, will make a great difference to your career and life. Allow us to help you shape your future and build a strong nation.
Dr. C.K. Mookappa Naik, Principal
