Sree Saraswathi Thyagaraja College founded by V.S.V. Vidyaa Mandir Trust during 1997 with an objective to meet the higher educational needs of the rural as well as the urban youth in and around Pollachi and other districts of Tamilnadu, has become the cynosure of everyone and has won the confidence of the people as an institution of excellence with discipline, quality and values. The trust was formed by the three great visionaries of the three Philanthropic families – Thiru. P.M.Thyagarajan, Thiru. M.K.Arumugam and Thiru. D.Sivaraman.
And now the institution is ably run and professionally managed by the highly enterprising and service minded business titans and their legal heirs, Thiru. M.A.Vijayamoghan as Chairman, Thiru. T.Sethupati as Vice Chairman and Thiru.S.Venkkatesh as Secretary. Our Former Director General Dr. M.Settu was a brilliant corporate wizard who is no more, played a major role with his road map, strategic guidance and meticulous planning in transforming the institution into an excellent one and his atman ever remains as the guiding spirit of STC for its great leap. The induction of new directors Mrs. Shravanthy Krishnamurthy, Mr. M.V. Sreekanth and Mr. P.T.S. Shreeram into the Management Board has given a new dimension, lustre and extra mileage to the management of the Institution.
