The history of V.V.Vanniaperumal College for Women, a temple of learning founded by a great visionary Shri V.V.Vanniaperumal Nadar with a singular objective of empowering rural women through higher education, is a saga of human excellence, endurance and commitment for six decades.
Having started with a meagre strength in 1962, the institution has grown by leaps and bounds into one of the reputed women's colleges in Tamilnadu. The strength has reached 3973 students of which 1924 are admitted in aided programmes and 2049 are admitted in self finance programmes. The college offers 20 UG programmes, 14 PG programmes, 6 M.Phil. programmes and 6 Ph.D. programmes. At present 96 teaching staff serve in the aided departments and 132 in the self finance departments. There are earnest and enthusiastic 195 non-teaching staff (48 in aided and 147 in self finance). The college became an autonomous institution in 2009 and it was reaccredited with 'A' GRADE (3rd cycle) in 2018 by NAAC.
