Roever is now synonymous with quality education and sustainable social empowerment. While our belief in universal education is slowly empowering rural communities throughout many generations, I would like to highlight the immediate needs of the socially and developmentally challenged rural poor, who have no community or government support.
The esteemed college started in the year 1985 is one of the higher educational institutions among the eighteen educational institutions under this magnanimous management. Our primary aim is to provide quality higher education to the students from the weaker and backward sections of our society.
Started as a minority institution and having grown today as an Autonomous Institution, we relentlessly pursue towards the empowerment of young men and women.
The college situated the Chennai – Tiruchirappalli National Highway is proud of its serene atmosphere in the town Perambalur surrounded by hundreds of agricultural villages.
