Strategic Plan & Deployment

CTTEWC Perspective Deployment

Chevalier T. Thomas Elizabeth College for Women was established in the year 1985 under the T. Thomas Educational Trust. The Founder Dr. Elizabeth Thomas was the wife of Mr. T. Thomas, the founder of the CTTE Trust and the St. Mary’s Group of Schools. When the College was first established, there were no women’s colleges in the locality & the objective of the institution was to offer affordable higher education & empowerment to women, specially first generation learners who found it difficult to travel to Central & South Chennai.
