From the Desk of the Vice Chancellor,
Present Education System places greater responsibility on teachers: to educate, train and guarantee job for the students. Women as teachers can reveal a lot of facts and help determine their influence on education. In an excellent working condition, woman teachers can contribute to the development of girl-education and the community. Teachers, especially, woman teachers are important catalysts for women empowerment- in building a positive self-image for girls, promoting self-awareness, effectiveness and strengthening them to fight for their justice. Women as teachers can create in young learners an appetite for bringing about positive change in all areas.
Established in 1984, under the Act 15, with the lofty vision of “Women Empowerment through Education” by the then hon’ble Chief Minister Thiru. M. G. Ramachandran, Mother Teresa Women’s University (MTWU), has been rendering a Yeoman service in ennobling women of all social strata, especially the tribal and the most downtrodden women through higher education. The University has the pride of being the first Govt. Women’s University in the State and the third in the Nation.
Mother Teresa Women’s University, whose foundation stone was laid by the legendry Nobel Laureate for Peace St. Mother Teresa, has been playing a catalytic role in building an inclusive nation through empowered women.
MTWU with its distinctive feature -- a University for the Women, by the Women, and of the Women – cultivates woman learners as powerful decision makers and capacity builders to shine as potential global leaders. Situated on the lap of the Princess of Hills, Kodaikanal, which is a Multicultural Tourist Centre, and equipped with the State of Art facilities, MTWU provides a conducive ambiance for academic and research pursuits. MTWU has widespread its strong wings at Madurai, Chennai, and Coimbatore with its Research and Extension Centres for encompassing woman aspirants from all over the State. The University also enables the students, rural women and the destitute to shine as employers rather than being employees, through its Entrepreneurship Training Centre at Pallapatti, Dindigul.
I am proud to state that the staff and the faculty of MTWU are highly competent and passionate in rendering their academic and administrative services with focussed mind. It is with their collective strength that MTWU is taking its strident steps towards the attainment of its broader vision and mission.
Besides imparting the domain knowledge and different skill sets, the faculties play meaty role in nurturing the holistic personality of our stakeholders. I am confident that becoming one of the top-notch Universities at the global level is not a far-off dream, because of the strong support of the intellectually resourceful faculties and the 100% co-operation of our dear parents and other stakeholders, who encourage us with their valuable and constructive suggestions. Let us strive, seek, and achieve.
With warm regards and wishes
