Principal’s Message

Dr. Thomas K. V


Greetings from Nirmala College, Muvattupuzha, Kerala!

We want the education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded, and by which one can stand on one’s own feet”; these words of Swami Vivekananda are integrated in the core values of education offered at Nirmala College. Our authentic and value oriented teaching-learning process inculcates in a student, integrity of character to become a socially committed citizen. We also strive to empower them to make the right choices in the pursuit of excellence, with unwavering faith in God.

Every student is unique and special to us in Nirmala. We nurture and prepare our students towards academic excellence and mould them to become better human beings who are competent, responsible and mature individuals with strong character. “An intelligent mind acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks wisdom” (Proverbs 18:15).

The cordial relationship between the faculty, the non-teaching staff and the students make Nirmala a home-away-from-home, providing the best teaching and learning environment. Living in harmony with one another and with nature in the lush green campus is another unique experience for the students.

The number of university ranks and top grades, the numerous job placements and the remarkable student progression reflect the excellence of the college, which is validated by NAAC in 2021with A++ Grade and a CGPA of 3.73, in the fourth cycle of reaccreditation, which is the highest among affiliated colleges in India.

As many Higher Education Institutions are marching towards a holistic and multidisciplinary education with flexible and innovative curriculum in UG & PG Programmes with multiple exit and entry options under the framework of National Education Policy (NEP), Nirmala College is in the right path of implementing the Policy. Many initiatives are taken in this direction which includes National Seminars & Conferences on NEP 2020, Curriculum Designing & Transactions, Academic Bank of credits (ABC), Internationalisation of Education & Implementation of Outcome Based Education (OBE), etc. It is right to quote here the words of Mahatma Gandhi “True Education must correspond to the surrounding circumstances or it is not a healthy growth”. Nirmala is growing towards Academic Autonomy to transform Nirmala as a Centre of Excellence with multidisciplinary programmes including research for the development of society and individual.

I bow in gratitude before our founder fathers and former stalwarts, and all our stake holders whose divine legacy, rich heritage and selfless service have placed Nirmala College as one of the best educational institutions in India, on a high pedestal in the field of education, research and human values.

Let us remember the words of Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam: “Learning gives creativity, creativity leads to thinking, thinking provides knowledge and knowledge make you great”. Nirmala gives ample opportunity for every student to grow, explore, flourish and at the end to stand on their own feet.

Wishing you the very best!
