A. V. Kanthamma College for Women, Hassan is a premier center of higher learning in the western Malnad region of Karnataka. Malnad Technical Education Society (MTES) launched the college in a humble way in July 1966, just with 123 students at the PU level. The institution started functioning partly in the borrowed premises of the Municipal High School and partly in the Malnad College of Engineering, Hassan, a sister institution run by the same Management. A plot of 4.75 acres of land in a prime part of the town was graciously allotted by the Karnataka Govt. for locating the College. (A part of this land is utilized for constructing a shopping complex the income from which is utilized for meeting the expenses of the College) A generous donation by the late A. N. Varadarajulu, a retired Karnataka Govt. official, helped the MTES to go ahead with the construction of own building for the institution. In fact, it is in recognition of this philanthropic act that the College is named after the donor's wife, Smt. Kanthamma.
The authorities were alert enough to get the UGC recognition both under 2f and 12B soon after. This helped the college to receive eligible financial grants from the UGC during that Plan as well as during the subsequent five year Plans. In 1970 the college moved to its own well maintained, three storied building. With gradual additions, the building complex now has more than 5000 sq. m of covered space. The College if affiliated to the University of Mysore. A. V. Kanthamma College for Women decided to undergo the assessment and accreditation process of the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). The authorities prepared a Self Study Report (SSR) and submitted it to the NAAC for the purpose. The national apex body, in turn, constituted a Peer Team to assess the work of the College.
