1842 yes, the year when American Missionaries set Educational Institutions to being hope and value and respectable living for the marginalized from Pasumalai. The bacon of light of wisdom and knowledge to under privileged helped to break then the social bondages and created a new social order to up lift families from the lower strategy. A cross section of society from Southern Districts of Tamil Nadu, What they are today- is because of and through education from the missionary institutions. Patriots, Theyogies and Freedom Fighters of the nation have emerged from the portal of the institution and served to lift up the society to quote, our alumni are
CSI stands for Church of South India and Mdurai – Ramnad Diocese is the ecumenical unit headed by Rt. Rev. Dr. Christopher Asir, is instrumental in conservation of Christian education; who started CSI college of Education in Pasumalai and Ramnad, utilizing the wealth of experience (35 years) of Dr. J.P. Gabriel (Rtd) from Department of education, Madurai Kamaraj University and The American College. At present, the Diocese of Madurai-Ramnad has 183 Institutions, 5 colleges, Two B.Ed colleges, One Dental College, Arts and Science College, One College of Nursing, One Trade School, Scholl of Nursing, Two Teacher Training Institutions with 17,500 teaching faculty and 45,000 students learning at various levels. 174 schools are scattered in six districts.
The important determinant of its’ high light. The academic energy input that vitalizes the potentials of the learners is the unique process that the college feels it’s special property. Walls and charts have no life in them unless the knowledge-transfer is provided to them. When the spirit entered into the heap of bones, they became human beings ( Ezekiel 37: 2-14 ), Such spirit God has provided in the institution by the dedication and commitment of the team of faculty. The training they constantly undergo under the leadership of Dr. J.P. Gabriel, Director of the college is the drive force of operation. (Dr. Gabriel, Retired Professor of Education, Madurai Kamaraj University & Director of Educational Media Research Centre of UGC, who has been guiding students at Ph.D level both in M.K. University and Alagappa University, Karakudi. Still he guides students in Educational Research)
The college has the air of democracy with freedom of expression and sharing. Meeting between the students-staff-parents provide energy to venture boldly into yet un trodden areas. One such is the “Networking among CSI institution in Counselling” involving students and teachers for the common benefit. The flexibility in administration has provided every one the necessary opportunity in decision taking. Often called staff meetings allow the members to share and criticize in true spirit of improvement. Public opinions are collected to sieve the good in it.
There is no dearth in co curricular activities to enrich the students performances and to provide opportunities for development. All departments have their own “Department Clubs” apart from the college core clubs for college activities. The leader is elected among them once the academic year commences and allocated with a calendar for expected performances after discussion. Achieving the full list is left to them, but it will have a drive on the team for completion before the end. Targets to reach set the goal or objectives before them. While college education is sadly reduced to “note dictation”, the trend to equip them “Learn to Learn” is practiced in this campus. The way to form the “Knowledge Society” is the vision of the institution. Tagore said only a lighted candle alone can lit another, so we intend providing the light of wisdom and the knowledge of discovery among our students. The Hall mark that we want them to take is – “I Can”.
Self – Esteem hardly been hardly been reflected by many because of the traditional style of instruction that demands obedience to system. Freedom is restricted even from acquiring information by convincing the students by habituating them that the only source of information is the guru. The bondage is neither felt and hardly attemptes are structured to break. Library happened to be stuffed with racks of books and access is either denied or minimized. Opportunities to establish Self- Identity through participation in organized Debates in the college help to realize the hidden potentials wanting to be discovered in individuals.
