I am proud to share with you that the college is located in serenity of nature in this part of rural area, which offers undergraduate courses of co-education in the streams of BA, BCom, BBA and BCA. The college enjoys the status of UGC 12(b), 2(f) and UGC has been very kind enough to release grants for various research and developmental grants during 11th and 12th plan periods. It is a matter of great satisfaction for us that the college has undergone two NAAC Cycles till the date and the preparation of 3rd Cycle is in full swing. The former management of the college was generous to hand over the college to Kuvempu University on the suggestions of NAAC-Pear Team and suggestions were also made by stakeholders of the college during 2008, which the honorable government of Karnataka accepted and passed the order in that effect, after taking over the college, Kuvempu University is providing every support and encouragement for the growth of the College. Kuvempu University is magnanimous in renaming the College as ‘UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF ARTS AND COMMERCE’ which leads to the college enjoys University status.
Our College has been providing value based education with sensitivity of modernity and ICT based teaching and learning. The hallmark of our College is that of harmonious relationships among the students and the staff. We have 13 committed Associated Professors, dedicated Guest Faculty and Non-Teaching staff. Over the years the college has produced the best students now they are mentionable citizen of the country.
‘Rurality is yet another feature of the college, which symbolizes sustainability of rural ethos, including Agriculture, Horticulture, rural tradition and rich surrounding with forest which makes college a pollution free zone and clean campus. It’s known fact that unless and until the last man in the remote gets higher education, the dream of 21th Century. This is the reason our college is no doubt a small icon in creating a strong awareness of higher education. We have been rendering yeoman’s service to rural student’s significantly. We have never discriminated in the name of caste, creed and sex. I am proud to make it clear that we treat all our learner’s as learners/students. We care them with love and affection while following rules and regulations og UGC, State Government of Karnataka and Kuvempu University in total. Since the colleges is in the campus of the University, has facilitated free health checkups at the University Health Centre, use of University Central Library(need based), Stadium, Hygienic Canteen and importantly Conference Halls to our college.
The College has been pragmatic in narrowing down the gap between higher education and society. The reason is that we receive first generation literate students and for us our students are raison d’etre. The real challenge in running a college in the rural place is that to face ‘challenges of change’. Despite a number of challenges we face in imparting quality higher education to rural students we have been able to sustain and grow because of your strong support in every sense of the word. While thanking you for your kind support we believe that a) Students b) Parents c) Professors and d) Administrative body/Government are the pillars of the college. I humbly expect your appraisal to excel in our earnest work.
I once again welcome stakeholders to visit our college for your needs of higher education.
