The history of SNMV College - Shri Nehru MahaVidyalaya is a narrative of response to society's call. In 1989, that call came from a migrant community that knew the day's hard wage, but not the future's promise. SNMV College offered that promise. Today, the call emanates from a world that has experienced an explosion of knowledge. SNMV College endeavors to educate a new generation of leaders—men and women who will be capable of shaping the future with vision, justice, and charity—with a sense of calling, with concern for all of the human beings.
I invite you to join us, as a prospective student, parent, or friend.
(To put in a nut shell the college has a campus of 50.3 acres with more than 2,98,044 lakh sq. ft. of built up area having classes for UG & PG Courses, a specialised building with an area of 25,573 sqft dedicated only for the MBA, separate Ladies and Gents Hostel (with independent mess) each of which has two wings, monitored by full time Wardens & Assistant Wardens.

The strength of the hostel inmates as on date is 378 (208 boys and 170 girls). 33 College buses ply to provide access to different parts of Coimbatore &Pollachi. The Teaching force of 134 is a force to reckon with and a non teaching staff strength of 96 to help the smooth functioning of the College. Our Institution offers a rich array of 18 UG and 8 PG courses along with Research and Doctoral programmes, complemented by 14 career oriented Add on Courses (Sponsored by the UGC) and value – added coaching classes for CA, ICWA and ACS Competitive Examinations. The student strength of 3200 gives me a sense of satisfaction and belief of the goals achieved and the future endeavour that we may think of.)
Challenges and Opportunities are two sides of the same coin. Modern education, curriculum development and teaching methodologies have to keep pace with the demand of the economic environment. The manager, businessman and the entrepreneur of today need many more weapons in armory. Holistic education should include all round development of a student.There are also stories of students and alumni who continue to excel in their chosen fields, maintaining the high standards that we have established at SNMV College of Arts & Science.
We will not rest on our laurels, as there are many critical issues facing today’s colleges and universities. We will continue to invest heavily in our academic and student-life programs, and we will stay focused on student enrollment, student satisfaction and student success.
Apart from the staple and mainstream courses in Arts, Science and Commerce, the institution offers various vocational and job oriented courses to give learners an edge over others in the job market by chiseling their communication, computer and other soft skills.
To make holistic development of the students, various subject societies like Youth Red Cross, Women Cell, SvastikaCounseling Centre, Legal Literacy Cell, Environment Society, Computer Society, Career CounselingCell,Social Sciences Forum etc organize debates, seminars and quiz to sensitise the students on socio- cultural and environment issues.
The contribution of students in several co curricular and extra curricular activities are of paramount importance.
I intently believe that you would have an all-round development of your personality during your stay in this Saraswati temple of learning.
On the 28th year we, as SNMV family, have made great strides in the field of Education & Social understanding,“But we have promises to keep and miles to go before we sleep.
