Sree Narayana College, Chempazhanthy, affiliated to the University of Kerala, was established in 1964 and it pursues excellence upholding the teachings of the radical social reformer and visionary Sree Narayana Guru. The management of the institution is vested in S N Trusts; formed in 1952 with Sri. R. Sankar; the former Chief Minister of Kerala, as the first General Secretary. His great efforts persistently inspired by the spiritual guidance, moral steering and egalitarian perspective of the great seer Sree Narayana Guru; became a turning point in the history of the State as he took education as the ultimate solution for the social injustice faced by the people of marginalized communities. Moreover, the College is located in Chempazhanthy which happens to be the birth place of the great sage and visionary-Sree Narayana Guru. Our vision of education is embodied in our Patron-Saint’s concept, ‘Enlightenment through Education’ only by which the ideal world of ‘One Caste, One Religion and One God for the Human Kind’ can be achieved. The above said facts remain as the distinctive feature of this institution by which it zealously toils to materialise the ideals of Guru, providing all sorts of leadership and support for the upliftment of the deprived and the marginalised, enlightening all on ‘oneness of humanity’.
By constantly prioritizing the curricular, co-curricular and value-based initiatives for the students, the college has excelled in its academic endeavours, and has become one of the leading centres of learning in the field of higher education, offering various courses at undergraduate and post graduate levels besides promoting skill development, employability and research undertakings.
The spirit of reformation led by Narayana Guru is imbibed by the College in all its activities and complete justice is done in extending education to students from all spheres of life. Guru was an egalitarian who advocated social equality and universal brotherhood and he believed in peaceful coexistence of humanity irrespective of their socio-cultural diversity. The College has never strayed from these principles.
Being situated in the outskirts of the city, the College acts as a place of solace to the students suffering from socio-economic backwardness as well as to the rural community which is deprived of social visibility and exposure. The social extension activities of the institution such as adopting the neighbourhood village of Ayyankali Nagar which increasingly inhabited by people belonging to scheduled caste community and the welfare activities conducted in the area such as cleaning the surroundings, providing food and palliative care to the elderly as well as setting vegetable garden, medicinal garden and fruit trees in the premises of various households are much appreciated by the local community. Promotional activities for organ donation, stem cell donation and blood donation as well as distribution of food grains and study materials in the Adivasi settlements, as well as relief activities of flood and COVID 19 deserve special mention. Majority of the students who attend the college are from poor socio- economic background and hence they voluntarily take part in such social welfare activities with feelings of empathy and brotherhood. Thus the vital relevance of the college stays in the fact that it is not only focusing on the curricular education but also on the comprehensive development of the students’ personality through social extension activities.
The College is indebted to its great founder R Sankar, who focused on the upliftment of the marginalized sections of the society through education. This illuminating vision to strengthen the weaker section of the society by offering opportunities and encouragement to students hailing from all backgrounds; is followed throughout the history of the College and it has a wide propaganda among the public. The recitals of hymns from Guru’s “DaivaDasakam” as morning prayer, followed by the reading of “guruvachanam” (preaching sayings of Guru) through the public addressing system instils moral values as well as capacity to make fair judgements among the staff and students. Moreover, the Sree Narayana Study Centre through regular programmes; enlightens the college community about the sublime preaching of Sree Narayana Guru. Institutional resources are also extended towards the conduct of Sivagiri Pilgrimage.
“Gurusanthwanam” is a programme carried out by the College to rekindle the ideologies of the Guru. Through this program, the institution takes up charitable endeavours and encourages meritorious students towards educational advancement. Guru’s perspectives on universal oneness (“one caste, one religion, one God to man”), impartiality of the self (“An Act, that one performs for his own good should also bring well-being to others”) and Education (“Education as a means for anyone who desires progress in this world”) have been the driving force for the institution in all its philanthropic activities.
Each year, varied acts of charity are performed under the Gurusanthwanam program especially on Founder's Day.. Deserving students of all the departments are honoured with rewards and recognitions and charitable activities include providing medical aid, facilitating money and physical labour towards constructing house to the needy, contributing smart phones to students from poor economic background etc. "Anayatha Aiswarya Deepam" project was initiated by the institution under Gurusanthwanam program as a novel initiative to support the differently abled students of the College in memory of Aiswarya A G, a differently abled student of 2019 batch (admission) who passed away due to disability related health issues.
Guruswanthanam program is hence recognized as a humanitarian gesture by the Institution for alleviating the plights of the poor and needy. It instills self discipline, selflessness, social and moral responsibility, leadership quality as well as a sense of fulfilment in the students giving first hand experience about the real life situations of the poor and the marginalized.
Thus, beyond academic excellence, the Institution is duty bound to liberate the society from the shackles of all sorts of evils and to uplift the socially and economically backward sections of the society by empowering them with quality education. The harmonious blend of such multifarious activities integrated under the auspices of the institution; following the preaching of the great seer Sree Narayana Guru; is our hall-mark that we take pride in.
