JSS COLLEGE FOR WOMEN
Affiliated to the University of Mysore & Re-Accredited by NAAC with ‘A’ Grade (CGPA-3.02)
Those were the days when higher education was considered a privilege of only the affluent families of the society in and around the then Chamarajanagar town. Getting higher education was only a matter of dream for the socially and economically backward people of the town and nearby villages of this area. Economic backwardness had prevented the rural folk of this border area from having access to the centers of higher learning. There was no institution of higher education or college during those days in this part of the state, which could offer education at affordable cost. What was almost a dream for decades for the people of this area turned into a reality when an under graduate college was established in the then Chamarajanagar town by JSS Mahavidyapeetha in the year 1967.
In the beginning college offered only B.Sc course with the combinations PCM and CBZ. In the later years, B.A and B.Com courses were also introduced. This led to the expansion of the college building, teaching and non teaching staff, library, physical education and other infrastructure facilities. Today our college has become one of the leading colleges in the newly formed Chamarajanagar district with enough opportunities of learning for younger generation. With the intension of further expansion, computer science was introduced in B.Sc course. During the academic year 2009-10 and BCA Course during academic year 2013-2014. BBM was started to enable girl students to be more enterprising.
We are very proud to say that the college was accredited with ‘A’ CGPA 3.02 grade in the year 2017, which is the highest grade in the entire Chamarajanagar district. With a determination to secure the highest grade the college motivated and encouraged the faculty to pursue doctoral degree. As a result currently the college has Ten (10) doctorate degree holders and four faculties are pursuing doctorate degree..
With the ever increasing demand for higher education, especially of girl students, the college student’s strength has increased from 800+ in the year 2012 to 1000+ in the current academic year. The college is planning to introduce some more UG, PG and certificate courses.
To sum up, our institution is determined to march ahead with the objective of providing quality education to the people of this area. In this endeavour, we have the blessings of our president His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Swamiji and co-operation of our management and the general public of this area.
