Through the four decades since its inception, Seshadripuram College has steadily grown to its present status as one of the leading degree colleges not only of Bangalore or of Karnataka but of the country as a whole. This is reflected in the prestigious NAAC "A" grade, in the consistently high ranking of leading magazines, but, above all, in the perceptions of the society and the public that the institution strives to serve.

But to rest on our laurels, to become complacent about our achievements, would be dangerous, as the challenges facing higher education grow increasingly stiffer; there is a need to re-define our roles and responsibilities as an educational institution so that we remain relevant in a constantly changing scenario. It is imperative that we encourage our students to fare well academically but perhaps even more importantly, to develop the capacity to think analytically as well as creatively. It is important to ensure that the best companies come to our campus but more importantly, to instill in our students the qualities of self- discipline, commitment and integrity which will ensure that they will be able to build successful professional lives for themselves. It is important to mould our students into smart, confident young people but much more important, to make them sensitive, caring and responsible citizens, sons and daughters. Above all, it is important to make them broad-minded and progressive in the best sense by helping them to understand and respect differences. And finally, at a time when the greatest barrier in the way of our nation's march towards progress is perhaps a growing intolerance of other's faiths, it is important to guide them towards being truly secular in their attitudes without losing attachment to their own faith.

To achieve all this is a daunting challenge but I know that no educational institution of worth can shy away from it today. I am confident that this institution, growing over more than 40 years, supported by an enlightened management, committed faculty and a bright, sensitive, socially-responsible student community, has all the resources to make it possible.
