Avinashiligam Deemed University – AVINUTY University

Avinashiligam Deemed University History :

Sri Avinashilingam Home Science College for Women was established by the great patriot and educationist Dr. T.S. Avinashiligam under the auspices of the Avinashilingam Education Trust in 1957 with 45 students. The growth of the Institution has been carefully nurtured to its current heights by the world renowned educationist and nutritionist, former Chancellor of the University.

Dr. Rajammal P. Devadas until she passed away in March 2002. It is now the largest Institution in the country for imparting Home Science Education at all levels. It was one of the eight colleges on which autonomy was conferred by the University of Madras in June 1978 and the first of the women’s colleges to get this distinction.  Autonomy gave the College scope for academic freedom for innovations in teaching and research.

The Government of India declared Sri Avinashilingam Home Science College for Women and Sri Avinashilingam Teacher’s College for Women as a Deemed University under Section 3 of the UGC Act in June 1988. These Colleges have been renamed as Avinashilingam Institute for Home Science and Higher Education for Women and is marching towards the twenty second year as a University.

As per the corrigendum No.F. 6- 1 ( 11 ) / 2006 ( CPP – 1 )  dated 20th Feb, 2008, the University has been renamed as “Avinashilingam Deemed University for Women”. Dr. T.S.K. Meenakshisundaram has assumed the Chancellorship on 2.12.2010. He is a follower of the Founder-President Dr. T.S. Avinashilingam Ayya Avargal.

Avinashiligam University follows the educational ideals of Sri Ramakrishna, Holy Mother Sri Saradamani Devi, Swami Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi and upholds a life of purity, discipline and service. A temple dedicated to Sri Ramakrishna commands the campus. Daily prayer is an integral part of campus life. All the students and staff are expected to participate in the common prayers.

Avinashiligam University functions under seven Faculties, namely, Home Science, Science, Humanities, Education, Business Administration, Engineering and Community Education and Entrepreneurship Development. Each faculty functions under the headship of a Dean.

The pattern of education has been fully semesterised. The academic year is divided into two semesters, each semester having a minimum of  90 teaching days. The semester pattern offers each student  individual attention of the teacher and facilitates the student’s all round development. It calls for active participation of the students in the learning process.

Regular attendance is an important feature of the semester pattern. Evaluation of the students’ work is continuous and comprehensive, with a weight age of 100 per cent for UG and PG  for internal assessment. Examinations for the courses offered in a semester are conducted in the same semester to make learning more effective and to reduce the burden on the students
