About the Institution
" Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel "
Sri S.Ramasamy Naidu, familiarly known as "SR" was a dedicated educationalist and freedom fighter. His realization that political freedom will be of no value unless there is freedom from illiteracy led him to work tirelessly for the great cause of education. Thanks to his keen interest and initiative today, this part of Tamilnadu is blessed with a number of educational institutions.
Four decades ago, some great philanthropists of this region founded our College in memory of this visionary leader, in order to realize his noble ambition. It was incepted at Nagalapuram village in 1970 with Thiru.V.Venugopala Krishnasamy Naidu as its Founder President. The Mission of the College was to serve the interests of the rural poor, help them have the benefit of excellent education and find employment, and thereby ameliorate their lifestyles.
In 1972, the College was shifted to Sattur. The College became a University-affiliated first-grade institute offering a degree course in B.A. Branch-I-History. Then the urgent need for a more spacious institution was deeply felt. Hence a forty-eight-acre site was purchased. Thanks to the generosity of its countless benefactors over the years, it is possible for the College to have a number of magnificent buildings now. In this regard, the College gratefully remembers the munificence of a great philanthropist, Late Sri.Sathu.T.Ramasamy Naicker, the founder of Sri Jaya Vilas (P) Ltd., Aruppukottai.
At present the College is offering 14 Undergraduate courses, 8 Postgraduate courses, 4 Diploma courses, 6 M.Phil. Courses and 4Ph.D. programmes.
The UGC conferred Autonomous Status to the college in the academic year 2010-2011 and the same was extended in the year 2016-2017. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) accredited the college with â€œB++â€ Grade in 2005, reaccredited it with â€˜Aâ€™ Grade with 3.22 CGPA in 2012 and now again reaccredited it with â€˜Aâ€™ Grade with 3.38 CGPA in 2017. These crown achievements have spurred the institution towards academic transcendence and social service .
Since its inception, this institution of higher learning has been fulfilling the educational needs of the people of this area in a commendable way.
