About Mother Teresa University
Mother Teresa Women’s UniversMother Teresa Women’s University is situated at Kodaikanal, a quiet hill station tucked away in the Palani hills of South India. This University was established in the year 1984 by the enactment of Tamil Nadu Act 15. This University aims to extend its service to women students of all communities. It strives for Academic Excellence and Personality Development and gives equal importance for promotion of employment prospects to young girls.
Mother Teresa Women’s University with its motto “Towards Equal Status” is committed to redress the gender divide in education present in our society, through its teaching, research and extension activities. Investing in Women’s education, particularly at the tertiary level, should have sustained momentum in our society for decades to come, Mother Teresa Women’s University is determined to reduce the gender gap by promoting higher education for women, as it is effective equalizer of Socio-Economic inequalities by trickle down effect.
It is my fervent hope and prayer that in the Sliver Jubilee year of Mother Teresa this Women’s University would honour and celebrate all learned women in India.
