I find it immense pleasure and content to extend my expertise as Principal of Government Arts College for women, Sivagangai. Government of Tamil Nadu has been more benevolent to uplift the weaker women folk of this backward belt to be educationally empowered and elevate their standard of life by establishing a women’s college to give opportunity to get higher education. Thisesteemed institution was established in the year 1998 and as awoman, I feel proud to be a part of this process where we work and learn together to identify avenues to achieve potential and execute in a more civilised and organised manner. The main objective is to hone the students to be responsible, resilient and confident to face their future and become a productive member of the community at large.
Our college comprises thirteen under graduate course and seven post graduate courses and two M.Phil. courses. By and large the girls of this remote area are benefitted with the varied courses to develop their competencies. We are affiliated to Alagappa University, Karaikudi and our curriculum and practises are consistently reviewed to ensure the best practises to address the future needs of our students. Our faculty incorporate the dynamic trends to be updated and stream our students to the need of the century.
The college offers many club activities, sports, and a large variety of skill development courses funded by the Government and we are always grateful for the same. Many of our students accomplish University ranks and encouragement is also extended for them to get involved in extracurricular activities that allow them the opportunity to grow at their own pace in a nurturing environment. The NSS units of our college caters to these outreach programmes. Students are exposed to a plethora of job opportunities from the employment exchange offices by way of awareness programmes and job fairs. Students participate in various competitions conducted by other institutions and bring laurels.

Students are trained to be creative, imaginative, disciplined with ethics and inculcate the best virtues to become future leaders and elevate the status in the society. The Fine Arts association which conducts various competitions indirectly teach them to be self-motivating and creative and imbibe the spirit of appropriate attitude and unleash their potential in an ethical way. It also develops the right competition towards sublime heights.
The progress of the students is monitored to have a holistic development which in turn helps them to be independent and professional. I witness rapid growth in infrastructure to furnish to the contemporary needs which are extended by the state and central governments. I extend my wishes and pray the students to grow to become in par with other urban counterparts, well equipped with skills, and ethical mindset with a brave emotional quotient to climb greater heights in future.
