Govt. College for Women (Autonomous), Kumbakonam, India


Dr. P. Cynthia Selvi, M.Sc.,M.Phil., Ph.D.,

The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and
the wings of independence.

       Innovation and inclusion being the key values of any institution in a globalised era, educational institution cannot be an exception. As early as 1963, Government of Tamilnadu has set the quality parameter for inclusive education, by establishing this institution for the women, marginalized in a patriarchal society. Right from the inception our vision is to empower women through higher education. With an intake of around 4500 students, our college is a boon to the rural students hailing from socially and economically backward society.

       Apart from equipping our young women scholars with academic excellence we strive to impart extra competence to transform them to be prospective entrepreneurs.

       I wish to commend the staff and the students for their sincerity, hard work and efforts put through the years. I solicit the support of all the stakeholders in our endeavor.
