Welcome to Our College

Vellalar College for Women is a pioneer in women’s education, having to its credit a remarkable contribution to empowerment and upliftment of rural women moulding them into academically and professionally competent, self-sufficient and self-confident individuals to emerge outstanding in their respective avocations. Having been established in July 1970, the College has the twin distinction of being the first Women’s college and the only aided Women’s College in Erode District.

Education, particularly higher education is the most effective and the best way for the emancipation of women. It can be said that the credit of putting Erode on the national map of women’s education goes to the first President Thiru V.M.Kailasa Gounder and the first Secretary Thiru S.C.Sengottuvelappan who were the chief architects of this institution. They nurtured and cradled this institution with fervent dreams. Thiru S.C.Sengottuvelappan was succeeded by Thiru S.Duraisamy Gounder. The expansion of this educational edifice, its achievements and laurels are only the results of their perseverance and industry.

Dr.L.K.Muthuswamy, Thiru A.M.Nallaswamy Gounder,
Thiru K.Chinnaswamy who were men of vision, were behind the growth of this institution. The college has made phenomenal progress in the field of higher education and established itself as one of the best in the State, offering a wide variety of courses ranging from U.G. to Ph.D. The present President Thiru S.S.Kandasami and the present Secretary and Correspondent Thiru S.D.Chandrasekar are dynamic personalities, eminent educationists and serve as guiding spirit for successful endeavours.
