Prof.(Dr.) A. M Muraleedharan

MA, M.Phil, Ph.D

Principal, ITM College of Arts & Science

ITM College of Arts and Science is an exceptional academic community that has a great heart and passion for serving the needs of its students. Education is not just a process of giving knowledge for a future job, but a lifelong process which creates an understanding of moral and ethical values to guide one’s life in a right path. Every parent wants the best for his/her child and we are proud to be working with you to ensure that your child is given the right knowledge to face the future challenges. Parents, students and the college authorities are a team and we have to complement each other’s efforts.

At ITM College of Arts and Science, we focus on complete development of our students. I am sure this will help our students to realise, understand and explore their talents. ITM College of Arts and Science is open to all students irrespective of caste and creed. Students are accepted and cherished as they are, and are helped to go in their cultural, social and religious traditions. The college promotes education in a free atmosphere, which enables the students to seek the truth in their own way. It demands us to continue striving through constructive engagement for a bright future for our academic community in a world of growing challenges in higher education. I am sure that the efforts that we put in as a team will be fruitful in every walk of life. In order to do this, the parents and the college authorities must work together to inculcate certain values in the students.

Since the inception, the college has been rendering valuable service for the advancement of the educationally, socially and economically backward rural people in and around Mayyil, a beautiful village with easy access from all corners.

I am happy to note that the Management of the college has clear and proper vision and is constantly equipping the college to attain the vision and mission of the college. I would like to express my deep gratitude and appreciation for the remarkable services rendered by former Principals and Teaching and Non Teaching community. Let’s stand together for the better future.

Wishing you all the best.
