Director's Message

At the very onset, I am prompted to use a John Dewey's quote:

"Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself"

Gandhigram Research Education Trust, the founding organization of Dr. Kaipparedan College believes that rigors of the contemporary world require professionals not to end their quest for knowledge along with their stay in the campus. The dynamics of the fast-changing world urges the academicians to give the right impetus for making life-long learners out of students.

In addition to creating fertile minds for professional and personal success we have committed ourselves to create responsible citizens who are the epitome of highest ethics and social conduct. Thus, the responsibility lies with us to nurture complete professionals, who can rightly be termed as 'Karam-Yogis'. I can proudly state that we are fully equipped and motivated to handle this challenge and surely be successful.

I welcome all the students who chose to be a part of Dr. Kaipparedan College, I am sure that you will feel proud on being associated with us and make us equally proud with your academic excellence.
