Govt. Victoria College, Palakkad
The Govt Victoria College, Palakkad, which got established in the year 1888 is one of the four heritage educational institutions and centre of excellence in the educational sector of Kerala, aiming at training, guiding, inspiring, motivating and leading young men and women to become successful leaders to serve the country better. The campus in its life nurtured and brought up a number of leaders, professionals, artists, novelists and poets during the last 129 years. I am really honoured to be a part of this institution.
We focus on discovering, developing and drawing out the hidden talents and the magic lying dormant inside all of its students. From academics to co-curricular activities, perseverance and a never-say-die spirit are entrenched in the heart of every student not only making them good students, but brilliant human beings. In today’s dynamic world, a 360 degree development and grooming is of supreme importance and through our campus we are creating an environment for a future possessing skills and aptitudes in an array of functional disciplines. We are not only committed to traditional Indian values and culture for students to keep a connect with their identity, but we also recognize the need for a global perspective in life. Educational Institutions are a plenty, all of which impart a learning, but it is our prayer that our students go out into the world with the strength, not only to reach and excel in their professional aspirations, but to remain beautiful human beings for which we aspire to encourage students to believe in themselves to reach for the stars to reach great heights and they can if they believe in their abilities to do so.
The students of 15 UG and 11 PG programmes under 18 departments are provided with high quality educational experience in the form of seminars, workshops, quiz, debates, discussion and cultural competitions and our college also provides 5 research centre’s for future enhancement of academic activities and contribution to the nation.
Keeping in mind the words – ‘When educating the minds of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts’ – all the faculties spare no efforts to make the educational experience of our students meaningful and relevant to the socio-economic needs of the times and to equip our youth to face the challenges of the future for leading the society from the front, while ensuring that at the same time they are enjoying their experience of learning. The faculty and staff provide an intellectually stimulating and emotionally enriching environment in order that our students may develop confidence, critical thinking, leadership, creativity and responsibility.
I am very happy with the progress the college has made by imbibing in its students value based education synergized with all the required skills to produce a generation of well informed and emotionally sound generation. I am positive that in times to come, we will continue this journey with elevated enthusiasm and persistently provide a platform of holistic learning to the young generation of learners.
Wish you all the best,
Dr. P. Haridasan
