INDIRA GANDHI COLLEGE OF ARTS & SCIENCE
Indira Gandhi College of Arts and Science is a first grade institution of higher education with job oriented graduate and postgraduate courses established in 2002. Our institution is situated at Nellikuzhy about 5 KM from Kothamangalm –The Educational Hub of Kerala. The College is affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam and is approved by the Govt. of Kerala & managed by the Indira Gandhi Memorial Trust. The Trust also runs Indira Gandhi Institute of Dental Sciences, Indira Gandhi Institute of Engineering & Technology, Indira Gandhi Polytechnic College, Indira Gandhi College of Paramedical Science & SSM LP School Kudumunda.
The dream of well - educated and the like minded people who had headed administrative positions in social, cultural & university activities was materialised in the founding of Indira Gandhi Memorial Trust in the year 2000. As part of the government's new education policy, the trust started a new Arts & Science college and later on with the genuine efforts of all the members, the Trust could establish a Dental College, an Engineering College, a Paramedical Science College, and now a Polytechnic. The general secretary of the Trust is Dr.K.P.Shiyas. The Convener of the Academic Committee of the colleges is Adv. K. R. Sadasivan Nair (Former Senate member, Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam) and Mr.Shibu.K.P is the Managing Director of the group of institutions run by the trust.
It goes without saying that no institution can produce good students through its grand and beautiful buildings; rather it is the devotion of teachers, strict academic discipline, quality education and enthusiastic participation of parents and students that bring applause and laurels to the institution.
The scenario around the globe is changing rapidly and in this world of changes and challenges, demands for quality education are also increasing. Our Trust is endeavoring its best to cope with all these challenges and fulfill all coveted needs for commendable and quality education. Along with curricular activities, stress is also given to character building activities. I extend my cordial felicitations to the Principal, faculty and the students of all our institutions for making our humble project a grand success.
In the end, I pray to Allah Almighty that He may enable us to impart quality education to our students so that they succeed in future pursuits of life, Amen!
