Education is a fundamental right. The horizon of knowledge and awareness expansion is essentially a result of quality education and it is more so in the field of higher education. In this direction, the Government of Karnataka aims at providing quality education at affordable expenditure to backward, exploited and neglected section of the society. Therefore in the year 2007-08 the government established our Government First Grade College at the prestigious city center Malleshwaram area. It began with the student strength of 214 which has today reached 1070. The women ratio is greater than 50%.
The admission is open to all based on the guidelines and regulations of Department of Collegiate Education and Bangalore City University. The meritorious students, satisfactory academic performance, efficient and abled teaching faculty and proactive administrative staff are the backbone of the institution. Above all we have a visionary leader Dr. Prathima D S, our Principal an able captain steering the wheel holistic education leading the college. Under her leadership the college is progressing positively with a required momentum. The affairs and activities of the college is well supported by the President of College Development Council and a popular people friendly DCM Dr. C.N Ashwathnarayan and CDC members.
Our vision of education is based on innovative learning methodologies, continuous improvement, cultivation of practical skills with commitment to academic quality through curricular, co-curricular, extra-curricular and extension activities. The college is offering B.A, B.Sc., B.Com and BBA undergraduate courses. The PG course for commerce has commenced from the academic year 2020-21. Our motto is to ignite the total personality development among students to make them appropriate candidates for the job market. The college in this direction has conducted various professional development training and personality development programmes.
As Swami Vivekananda quoted “Education is the manifestation of perfection already in man. If we educate our people, so that they may be able to solve their own problems. Until that are done, all ideal reforms will remain ideals only.” Thus, our institution primarily intends to nurture hidden potential in students and channelize their knowledge to make use of varied opportunities and to face challenges of society.
With experienced and dedicated teachers and good infrastructure, our college helps students to realize their goals in life. I encourage all students to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the college and involve themselves in all the curricular and extra-curricular activities that are offered to enhance their skill and knowledge.
