“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” is a proverb found in the Tao TeChing. Looking back, this college stands to prove that this is true. Our institution with a strong edifice rising out of a humble beginning of 127 students in 1985 holds 2000 students now in 2018. We have braved rough weather and set our sails towards favourable winds. We have made remarkable progress in our educational patterns; our courses, our facilities and our structures have soared high. We place our trust in God and raise our thanks to the Almighty who has enabled us to travel thus far and has sustained us in the education industry helping us to carve out young ladies of character.
We, as the Bishop Cotton Women’s Christian College family have been riding on the wings of hope, which has taken us to greater heights, gaining for us momentum, fine tuning us towards every opportunity that lies in our path and emboldening us to practice integrity, to embrace the impossible and fathom the world of endless expectations.
“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot”. Everyone is a pilot of one’s own time and we at Cottons are trying to pack in events between one valedictory and another. Being a college of higher learning we are continuously trying to have a handle on the changing academic scenarios, garnering with expertise, with the aim to go beyond the ordinary.
Education is a continuous process. With globalization and the rate of information flow in this day and age, one must be prepared to shed outdated information and relearn to stay relevant. We have been constantly realigning ourselves with the shifts in technology and instituting the use of new gadgets to further our efforts in providing to our students the ambience of a true temple of learning.
We have been re-accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), New Delhi with an ‘A’ grade and this has made us extremely conscious that we have entered the race. Here, at Bishop Cotton Women’s Christian College, we are focused in our endeavour to integrate technology and modern teaching strategies in an attempt to improve the quality of learning and instruction. Various student enrichment programmes have been initiated and learning styles shift as per the demands and requirements of the new generation.
The college has made tremendous efforts to inspire students towards steady progress, self-improvement and in the achievement of excellence. At Bishop Cotton Women’s Christian College, we are keen on moulding the complete human being who is prepared to meet the challenges of this ever changing world. I acknowledge and commend the efforts of the various disciplines for setting goals that they pursue with determination and win competitively. The faculty have tirelessly worked with sound principles to build character in the student body.
“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is, what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” said Warren Buffet and the Bishop Cotton Women’s Christian College has earned a reputation of turning out young women who have well-rounded personalities and sound character.
