History

 Thiruvalluvar Government Arts College, Rasipuram is situated in a rural area, which has been providing quality education since 1968. The college was started in the academic year 1968-1969, with five pre-university courses. Within one year it was upgraded with degree classes in order to provide education to the students of the nearby villages who were financially backward. Local people were generous enough to donate liberally to the establishment of the college. The college was functioning in an excellent manner, which resulted in the introduction of many new courses and the new premises was constructed in the year 1971.

During the year 1985-86 Evening College was started with B.A History as the main subject to provide opportunities to employed people. A separate building was constructed in 1999-2000 to accommodate the expanding Computer Science Department. To meet the growing needs of the day a self-financing wing was started during the year 2003-04 in three subjects viz. B.A Tamil Literature, B.Com and M.Sc. Chemistry. In addition to these courses, M.Sc. Mathematics and M.A. Public Administration courses were started in self-financing wing in the academic year 2005-2006.  All these courses were upgraded as aided courses in 2009-10.

Though the college is located in a rural area catering to the needs of the students who belong to the lower strata of society, it is trying its level best to introduce the latest courses and technologies to the benefit of the students. The college was assessed by NAAC in 2004-05 and accredited with C+.

Here a meaningful self-evaluation of this institution has been presented. Our institutional motive is to bring the rural area students, who are mostly discontinuing the educational level with HSC, to the colligate level. Our students are coming from villages. Hence they are not aware of the viabilities of educational and job opportunities exposure to competitive examinations. Our teachers motivate the students for all these aspects along with class- room teaching.

Besides subject oriented education, our college NSS volunteers, NCC cadets, YRC, RRC and Rotaract members inculcate the rural mass about general health and hygiene, AIDS awareness, social service helping tendency in their minds etc. are promoted through our education.

There are four science courses and four arts courses and a B.Com course for the students. After the college working hours, our students are allowed to do diploma courses and certificate courses in welding, fitting, electrical works etc. in S.R.G Polytechnic College, Mallur. (College working hours for the first shift is from 8.40 A.M to 1.20 P.M and for the second shift from 1.20 P.M to 5.40 P.M)

The college obtains feedback on curriculum from students, alumni, parents, employers, academic peers and community.  Many parents of our Parent Teachers Association pointed out the need to develop the communication skill of our students.  The need of special coaching and training to face the interviews is stressed by the students.  Alumni emphasized to create an awareness about the various job opportunities in govt. sectors as well as in private sectors.  Some of the parents suggested to start special classes for IAS, IPS and  other UPSC examinations.  Suggestions are given to take remedial coaching classes apart form regular college time.

On the basis of the suggestion given by Parent Teachers Association and Alumni Associations, special coaching classes are being taken to our students.  SLET and NET coaching classes have been conducted periodically with aides from UGC by our faculties and talented subject experts from various parts of our country.
