Center for Value Education
Considering the gradual erosion of moral and spiritual values in every sphere of life and activity, Dr NGP Arts and Science College, Coimbatore felt the necessity in starting a center to impart the age-old cherished ideals and values aimed at providing, what the great patriot-monk Swami Vivekananda had said, 'life-building, man-making, character-making and nation-building', education and training.
"Education without values is a dangerous instrument" so the saying goes. In the present day context where a person tends to adopt a fast busy life without any emphasis for lifestyle management, people may easily fall prey to unethical and immoral practices. This affects not only him but influences negatively people around him as well.
Our former president Abdul Kalam says rightly that educational institutes while imparting knowledge of subjects should also create a favorable environment for the maturing of a real personality of a student-which becomes possible by inspiring him to lead a life based on values and ethics. He will then become capable of taking informed decisions for choosing a path which is in harmony with divine virtues like peace, tolerance etc.
To add strength to the Vision of our Institution and to enable it to achieve its noble objectives.
To instill faith in oneself and impart nobler values of life and life-giving strength, to raise individuals to higher levels of strength and felicity with spiritual, moral, ethical and eternal values of personality development and human excellence.
