Diamond Jubilee Celebrations of New College
To focus on Industry-Academic Collaboration

The New College, established in 1951, with 200 students in two Intermediate sections, has over a period of 60 years, made tremendous strides to gain the status of a leading Postgraduate and Research Institution, with a current strength of 4746 students, in 20 UG, 11 PG, 6 M.Phil., and 7 Ph.D programmes. The Vice President of India, Honorable Mr. M.Hamid  Ansari will inaugurate the Diamond Jubilee celebrations on Tuesday 12th November at Chennai.

The New College has plans to aggressively grow in terms of various courses and also focus on Industry- Academic collaboration in the coming years. The college has envisioned twinning programmes with reputed International Universities / Institutions; to encourage research, consultancy and expansion programmes. It will also upgrade infrastructure to International Standards; design inter disciplinary courses with enhanced choice of electives and focus to increase the student strength to 20,000 over the next decade.

According to Mr, U.Mohamed Khalilullah , Chairman,The New College,"the growth is not only in terms of number of students, but also in academic quality and curricular diversity, relevantly framed to meet the needs of society and to enhance employability of students. This is evidently reflected in the review of performance of the college in autonomous educational management with appreciation and commendation by the UGC Expert Committee in 2012 and re-accreditation with "A" Grade, granted by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council in 2010. The untiring efforts of the stakeholders-the management, staff, students and parents in quality enhancement and sustenance, did bring covetous recognition and prestige to the college, both within and outside India".

Mr. A.Mohamed Ashraf, Hony. Secretary & Correspondent, The New College, added "the Management has decided to erect a Commemorative Block, integrating classical and modern innovative architecture, for providing the-state-of the- art infrastructure to students. The general library, digital library and smart class rooms with ICT facility will add to the learning environment which includes, a conference hall, administrative offices of the parent body MEASI and also of the New College Alumni Trust. The management is committed to the task of constantly upgrading the infrastructure in the college, as required by the changing times and technology".

Unlike other leading colleges which select the academically best and aim to get the best results and top rankers, the primary strength of New College lies in the fact that the institution provides opportunities for academically backward students and first generation learners from the minority communities and other economically weaker sections of the society, to pursue higher education and mold them into responsible students who are competent and capable of facing competition successfully.

Centrally located, with an excellent infrastructure, the college is one of the leading minority institutions in the State of Tamilnadu, with an emphasis on providing education at a fee affordable to the economically weaker sections of the society. Till date, more than 60000 students have obtained their UG and PG, M.Phil and Ph.D degrees from the institution so far.

The management, befittingly in appreciation of the achievement over the past 60 years, is celebrating Diamond Jubilee of the college on November 12ththe celebration is to focus on challenges ahead in fostering quality education in the contemporary, unprecedented competitive, globalized world and to work out strategies for the future.

A number of cultural and literary events, seminars and intellectual interactive sessions programmed to reflect on issues surging in higher educational institutions, and remedies to resolve problems and challenges. In addition, the celebration shall offer a grateful tribute to the stalwarts and savants of society, who with great foresight and missionary zeal established the college to uplift the under privileged and backward sections of the society.
