The college has been granted the status of a College with Potential for Excellence by the UGC, and A+ grade by NAAC. The college is imparting education to more than 5000 students in various faculties. The Post Graduate Department of English announces the first International Conference on English Language and Literary Studies.

The conference aims to promote English language and literary studies in this era of globalization. English language is the language of communication for a large portion of world population and it has evolved over the years. The emergence of English language as a means of communication has also lead to the production of various literatures in English language. The English literary tradition, translations of world literatures into English and world-wide acceptance of English language has enriched the English language and literary studies to a large extent. There is a need to ponder over various aspects of the English language and literary studies. The International Conference aims to serve as a common platform for the scholars and academics from world-wide to exchange ideas by participating in academic discussions and seminars.
