Principal's Desk

With extreme sense of satisfaction, I share with all benefactors and stake holders of this esteemed institution, my thoughts on its steady march towards future glory. The establishment of the college in 1964 was the fulfillment of a long cherished dream of the localites in Guruvayur, who wished to have an academic institution in the area for both boys and girls. The college has developed over the years into a first grade college with 13 Under Graduate (UG) & 6 Post Graduate (PG) Courses. Two of the PG departments have also turned into Research Departments at present. The college is marching forward in tune with the well appreciated mission and vision that wishes to see the students to turn out as meaningfully empowered citizens. Our highly qualified and experienced faculty members have been continually chiselling the students over the years. Infrastructural development of the college is in progress at an enviable pace and efforts are on to make Sree Krishna College one of the well-equipped institutions in the state. The faculty of the college are highly respected in their respective disciplines with most of them holding doctoral and postdoctoral degrees. The members of our Administrative staff have always been very helpful and without them, we sincerely feel that whatever we have achieved would not have been possible. It is my pleasure to refer to the achievements we have garnered in academic, sports and cultural areas. We have achievements that comprise a long list of University toppers and eminent alumni who have made a mark in almost all social spheres. One of the cherished dreams of the college is to perpetuate a sports culture that we can proudly showcase our success in the form of international and national achievers in diverse sporting realms. Cultural activities are on the upswing and D zone inter collegiate championships have become a routine feature year after year. We also make serious contribution towards the community around and the students of the college, with the support of their mentors, serve the people of the village by conducting health surveys and literacy campaigns. We look forward to have more productive academic activities in future and solicit the continued cooperation of all well-wishers of the institution.


The College has evolved for the last five decades into a centre of higher education catering to the needs of the youth of the region and molding them to serve the nation in diverse realms. The infrastructural facilities on offer are at par with the facilities available in all major Colleges of the state. Sports and Athletics get laudable promotion in the institution in the presence of two of our students in the 2016-Olympics is an achievement only few Colleges in the country can boast of. The institution is sworn to serve the community around and all the practices and certificate courses designed by the institution take into serious consideration the social responsibility of the students. The institution has special programmes intended to bring the marginalized sections into the mainstream of academic activities. The effectiveness of the academic procedures stand amply demonstrated through our alumni who have distinguished themselves at various levels. High court judges, religious heads, MLAs, local body heads, Municipal chairpersons, Pro Vice Chancellors, Scientists, Academicians, entrepreneurs, social workers of eminence, high Government officials, University Union office bears, Syndicate and Senate members and Olympians, cine artists, prominent writers, national award winning film directors, media persons and Javans have made the institution proud with their contribution to the society at large. Innovative practices carried out by the College have deep academic and social relevance. All academic activities are carried out with a committed team of faculty, many of whom are Ph.D. holders and dedicated to the perpetuation of the vision and mission of the College. The institution has vibrant organizations like NSS, NCC, Nature Club and umpteen other forums and clubs that strive to instill the spirit of nationalism, inclusiveness, environmental responsibilities, civic sense, humanism, and other character building traits. The College has commendable academic achievements in the form of University toppers in various disciplines, though special reservations for socially and economically backward sections are offered at the time of admission. The College has glittering achievements in the field of fine arts and has won numerous prizes at the University level. The practice of organic farming and the programme “Annapoorna” has come in for high praise from the community around. College shares its expertise in diverse fields with all the stake holders and the academic community. “Walkathon” programmes are organized to promote a sports culture among the community around and to provide them with health tips to make them lead a healthier life. Rain harvesting, conservation of energy preservation of the eco fabric of the campus , innovative training methods to mould dope free Athletes of international caliber and an array of educationally and socially significant programmes carried out by the College have been much appreciated. The institution has a well drawn roadmap for the next decade, the ambitious targets having received the “go ahead” signal from the management. Installation of solar panel, “state of the art” sports facilities, research centres for all PG Departments with linkages and collaborations, more job oriented UG and PG programmes, better infrastructural facilities and a few other dream projects expect their fruition through the patronage of the UGC and the College Management.
