The history of Shri Nehru MahaVidyalaya College 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, charity, a sense of calling, and concern for all human beings.
I invite you to join us, as a prospective student, parent, or friend.
(To put it 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 where classes for UG & PG programmes are conducted; a specialised building with an area of 25,573 sq.ft. dedicated only for the Institute of Management, separate Boys and Girls Hostel (with independent mess), each of which has two wings, monitored by full time Wardens. There are three floors in every hostel each consisting of 15 rooms with a total of 48 rooms. The strength of the hostel inmates as on date is 380 (215 boys and 165 girls). Thirty Five college buses ply to provide access to different parts of Coimbatore, PollachiTirupur and Kerala. The teachingstaff 143 members, is a force to reckon with and the non-teaching staff strength,111membershelps in the smooth functioning of the College. Our Institution offers a rich array of 18 UG and 8 PG programmes 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 3204 gives me a sense of satisfaction and belief of the goals achieved and any future endeavors 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 his 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 programmes 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 ensure holistic development of the students, various subject societies like Youth Red Cross, Women’s Cell, Svastika - Counseling Centre, Legal Literacy Cell, Environmental Society, Computer Society, Career Counseling Cell, Social Sciences Forum etc. organize debates, seminars and quiz to sensitize the students on socio- cultural and environmental issues.
The contribution of students in many co-curricular and extra-curricular activities is considered to be of paramount importance.
I truly believe that you would have an all-round development of your personality during your stay in this Saraswati temple of learning.
In our 29th year, we as SNMV family, have taken great strides in the field of Education & Social Service, but, we have promises to keep and miles to go before [we] sleep.
