It is my privilege to bring warm greetings to you after having assumed charge as the 16th Principal of Madras Christian College, a great institution founded by the Rev. John Anderson, a Scottish Missionary, 177 years ago.
That the College will continue to strive towards academic excellence, social relevance and spiritual vitality shall be my main concern. I am delighted to state that the College will be growing in many areas such as infrastructural development, innovative initiatives and partnerships with internationally renowned educational institutions. Due emphasis is being laid on imparting sound education to women students and at present their strength is close to 50 percent of the nearly 5000 students and the same trend is evident in the faculty, as well.
I am confident that the college, with its rich legacy, besides being blessed by His divine hands, will be able to contribute richly in shaping young minds, thereby resulting in national development.
