Kishinchand Chellaram College was born out of the sweat, toil and vision of its founders. At the height of adversity these visionaries had only thought of creating a temple of knowledge. Our endeavour, year after year, has been to keep adding to that temple so as to create wonderful windows of opportunity for all who pass out from here.
We are a dynamic institution that believes in staying ahead of the times. We have introduced new professional courses every year from the year 2000 and last year we have included the MACJ (M.A. in Communication and Journalism).
We have a number of post graduate and research programmes including M.Sc. Chemistry, Ph D Chemistry, Ph.D. in Life Sciences, M.A. Hindi and Ph D Hindi. We are proud to be an institution of learning that houses courses from 11th to Ph D, all under one roof.
Our infrastructure and our faculty are our greatest strength. We have modified our infrastructure time and again to facilitate easy and computer based learning for our students. Our faculty believes in constantly updating their knowledge through research and the number of UGC minor and major research grants as well as the development grants that we obtain each year, bears testimony to that fact.
We have several fruitful tie-ups with prestigious foreign universities such as Deakin University, Australia. These tie-ups help us in having student exchange programmes, which greatly benefit our students and give them enviable exposure to a global atmosphere.
My efforts lately have been to make KC an environment friendly college. I strongly believe in the adage, “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” Time is running out for all of us and we need to rectify our erroneous way of plundering nature, or else nothing will be left for our children.
Our aspiration is not just to impart knowledge but also to shape employable graduates. We fulfill this aim by having many personality development programmes for the youth and other programmes like Science Honors, Core Programme in Commerce and Arts. We started E-cell for development of entrepreneurship amongst them.
We are a completely student-oriented and student-centric institution and believe that a judicious blend of modern techniques and traditional values and beliefs will sustain us and bring success to our students.
However, I also wish to tell our students that, “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”
May God bless us all.
