From the Principal's desk
We are going through an unprecedented period in recent history. Our college has passed through 42 years in the Higher Education scenario at this economically and socially backward area of Nilambur. Genuine concern of our institution is to ensure students’ emotional growth along with intellectual excellence. This empowers them to develop their self esteem, self awareness and self confidence.
The world around us is changing very fast and has become borderless in several aspects. The demographic features of the developed nations are creating enormous opportunities to our human resources. In this situation the empowerment of students for their all-around development through education is the primary aim of our Institution. Today education means much more than merely acquiring knowledge. It is acquisition of knowledge and skills, building character and improving the employability of our young talent, the future leadership. Our focus is on discovering, developing and sharpening the minds and skills of the students to enable them to become world-class citizens in the changing socioeconomic scenario.
The developments in the technology have created so many opportunities and treats to the academic environment as a whole. There are several tools which help the students to find the solutions to various academic assignments, but without real competence you cannot survive in competition. All of you should strive for excellence through the learning outcomes, soft skills such as cooperation, responsibility, communicative skills and dialogue, creativity and meta cognition.
The NEP introduced by the Central Government has opened new avenues to the students through academic freedom. The focus is a blend of theoretical and practical approach in the learning process. The education scenario in Kerala is also under drastic changes in the coming years, which focus in the empowerment of the Higher Education through the revision of the curriculum and skill enhancement
The faculty members of our College make a substantial contribution towards enhancing the research orientation, self-employment and entrepreneurship among the students. Measures initiated by the Management, steps taken by the college administration, the willing contribution of the teaching and non-teaching staff and over whelming response and enthusiastic participation of our students and their parents will help us to face the challenges and to reach better heights in future. The present generation should strive to maintain the standard and goodwill of the institution. We all as a family should try to take the institution to new heights.
I am delighted to welcome you all to this vibrant institution of learning and pray that the campus life in this college may transform you as a better person participating in the process of nation building.
