It is with immense joy and gratitude that I stand before you to present Fatima Pre University college report for the academic year 2008-09. While acknowledging the traditions and spirit of the founders of our College, I am pleased to present this Report on behalf of Belgaum Diocese Board of Education. Primarily, we do recognize the commitment and the trust of staff, students and parents and all those who are closely associated with this institute. As the principal of this institution, I am extremely privileged to be working with a diverse group of people who bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience in their role as lecturers, councilors and professors. I thank them for their support, commitment and dedication.
History: Fatima Pre-University College was established during the academic year 2002-03, as a memorial of the Golden Jubilee of Belgaum Diocese. Fatima Pre-University College was the brain child of Rt. Rev. Bernard Moras, the then Bishop of Belgaum, and was executed by Fr.Felix Monteiro as its founder, with a noble purpose of imparting quality education coupled with social, ethical and human values to the youth of Hubli City and the surrounding areas.
Within a short period of six years, Fatima College has made a name in the educational circles of Hubli-Dharwad. There were only 124 students in the year 2002-03 with one section each in Science, Commerce and Arts. In the year 2006-07, we have been granted permission to start an additional section in Science and in the year 2007-08 in commerce. Now we have ten sections with a total strength of seven hundred and thirty three students.
