Sree Narayana Guru College Chelannur -

Institutional Distinctiveness


The college is a coeducational institution situated in an economically backward and rural area of Kozhikode district emphasizes on ensuring the participation of students as well as of the local people in the programs of the college. The Entrepreneurship Development Club of our college organized a Mushroom Cultivation Training for Kudumbasree workers in Chelannur Grama Panchayath to generate an alternative income for many women agripreneurs in the area. The resource person of the program Dr Abhilash, Assistant Professor, Department of Botany guided the kudumbasree members on how to start a small mushroom farm in their own home, from where they can collect mushroom seed. Similarly, free drinking water testing for the residents around the campus was conducted by the Department of Biology to educate the good owners on the importance of maintaining the quality of water. A proper solution to eradicate bacteriological issues found in water was also advised as part of this program. Besides helping poor and needy students overcome their academic hurdles, the Department of English conducted a one-month course in Communication Skills in English for the students of SN Trust High School. Therefore, it can be said that the college provides quality education and opportunities to students as well as to local people for their intellectual and emotional growth through different programs that are relevant and responsive to the needs of the rural and educationally backward society of this region of the district.

The college follows the educational paradigm which enables effective conjunction of teaching along with the academic, physical, moral, and cultural development of students through social activities. This is achieved by focusing on nurturing the entrepreneurial skills of the community, contributing to the field of education through community engagement, and encouraging the community to rely on clean and safe drinking water.

The entrepreneurial skills of the community were nurtured as part of our services to the society by conducting activities like workshops on Umbrella making, Tie and Dye, Bottle Art, and Mask Making. Also, the Kudumbasree workers of Chelannur panchayath were trained to cultivate mushrooms in their households under the guidance of Dr. Abhilash. Through these activities, the college has contributed to social development through community engagement. Faculties from the PG Department of English have offered one month course in Communication Skills in English for a batch of students of Sree Narayana Trust High School Chelannur to encourage their reading and writing skills in English. This way the College has been able to contribute to the field of education through community engagement. The students of the PG Department of Biology conduct free drinking water testing of the open wells in and around the campus, to educate the good owners on the importance of maintaining the quality of water. Through this service-oriented program, students got an opportunity to practice what they have learned along with the neighborhood community.
