About University

Sri Avinashilingam Home Science College for Women was established by the great patriot and educationist Dr. T.S. Avinashilingam 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. 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.



Self development and empowerment of women through modern, scientific and value based education to enable them to lead a purposeful life filled with moral and spiritual values.



The mission of the University is to provide quality education of global standards on a strong foundation of Indian values and traditions to women students based on current advances in science, technology and societal demands with emphasis on commitment to social progress, peace, harmony and national integration.
