“Education is not the learning of facts, but training the mind to think”, said Albert Einstein while commenting on College Education, This training of the mind to think, to distinguish between right and wrong, to make the right choices while staying committed to values and producing balanced individuals who will contribute to social equilibrium is the laudable but daunting goal of all higher education institutions everywhere. Ever since its inception in 1972, DKM College for Women, Vellore, too, has stayed committed to the same and true to the vision of its founder Thiru. Krishnaswamy Mudaliar, which was to impart quality education to rural women, making them independent individuals of integrity who can be agents of social change
DKM College for Women aspires to be a model of excellence through dynamic programmes, innovative practices and a focus on research. The Faculty of the college are well qualified, updated and passionately committed teachers, truly interested in the welfare and development of their wards. Apart from academics, the college offers various opportunities and platforms to students to display and hone their skills through extension and extra curricular activities and various value added courses. The atmosphere of the college is student friendly and greatly conducive to learning. The college is also keen on discipline and values contributing to the character formation and moral well being of students.
The DKM fraternity stands true to its motto, ”Act, Arise, Activate” and takes pride in the completion of 50 glorious and successful years in the field of education and believes that better and brighter times are ahead for the institution.
