Sr.Dr.Rani George Endowment Lecture & Intercollegiate Paper Presentation Competition
Dr. Sr. Rani George took charge as Principal of St. Mary's College, Thrissur at a very turbulent time in the history of this pioneering institution for women’s education in Thrissur district. In a short span of 5 years, she changed the face of this ancient edifice of knowledge and transformed it into a state-of-the-art institution with hi-tech computer and science laboratories, internet and intranet facilities and computerized office and library. The college was re-accredited with an A grade by NAAC during her tenure. Her untiring efforts went into the construction of the new spacious hostel and she was instrumental in enhancing the permanent staff strength of the college. She was equally zealous about introducing and promoting a research culture among the faculty and paved the way for raising the Department of Mathematics to a Research Centre. She also believed in the holistic development of students. Her visionary zeal and energy has given this time- honored institution a new impetus to face the challenges of the future years.
In connection with the retirement of Dr. Sr. Rani George, an endowment was instituted by the PTA, Alumnae and Staff in 2012-13 under the initiative of the IQAC of the College. This endowment will be utilized every year to organize an Endowment Lecture and an Intercollegiate Paper Presentation Competition on a topic of current relevance.
