Associations in Carmel College

Alumnae Association


Carmel College, being the first affiliated college in Mala, our Alumnae Association is rooted in history because this college was built with an aim to bring out changes in the society, especially in the field of women’s education. The college was built at the time where women were restricted in achieving higher education and Mala being a small town with traditional social concepts, our college took a revolutionary attempt to challenge and break the social constructions existing in the society with regard to women’s education. So, the alumni of this college represent the women who aim for achieving higher standards in life. In addition, traditions and culture are also treasured as the College evolves.

The Alumnae Association of the college is one of the active associations where the former students of our college actively strive to encourage, promote and help our college to bring out the best in us. This association conducts various activities and programmes every year to boost lifelong learning and also to empower alumnae to connect with each other and the College. Every year we conduct three Executive Meetings and an Annual General Body Meeting. Alumnae members are given freedom to raise their concerns and issues related to the college as their opinion are valued and considered as the alumni are the outcome of our Carmel Family.

The registration fees collected every year, to join the Alumnae Association, is used for conducting various activities and for providing infrastructure facilities to the college and they are listed below.
