PERIYAR EVR – PERIYAR ERODE VENKATA RAMASAMY
Periyar EVR College stands as a beacon of knowledge for generations. It preserves its ancient heritage and simultaneously forges ahead with the changing times and makes its presence felt in the academic sphere of the State.
In the year 1965, the Government of Tamil Nadu Started Periyar EVR College in Tiruchirappalli, the central part of Tamilnadu, naming it after the great thinker and social reformer Thanthai Periyar. Half a century ago, higher education was beyond the reach of the oppressed and economically marginalized younger generation in and around Tiruchirappalli.
To provide higher education to the socially and economically weaker sections and to empower them to live with dignity and honour
To cater the educational requisites, Thanthai Periyar, the visionary leader of Justice Party and a well-known social reformer of Tamil Nadu, generously donated 9.65 acres of his land and Rs.3.5 lakhs, and requested the Tamil Nadu Government to start a college at Tiruchirappalli.
The development of the college in the academic, extracurricular and extension programs are due to the able leadership of several academics of this prestigious institution. The college, which was originally affiliated to Madras University, came under the jurisdiction of Bharathidasan University in 1982. The Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) and Semester Pattern were introduced during the years 2005 to 2008. Revised Choice Based Credit System (RCBCS) have been followed from 2008-2011 and then, the next change in the syllabus was introduced as New Revised Choice Based Credit System (NRCBCS) from 2011 to 2015. From 2015-2018, the Modified Choice Based Credit System (MCBCS) was adopted
