Gopalan Nair took over as the first Principal of the college on 08-07-1957. The College was declared open by the Honorable Minister of Finance, Sri. C. Achutha Menon on 07-08-1957. Prof. V. Gopalan Nair was succeeded by Prof. K.S.V. Shenoy as the principal.

Section 3: Overall Analysis
Based on the interaction the peer team had with the principal, teachers, non teaching staff, students, alumni and parents and also based on perusing records and visiting various infrastructural facilities, the peer team feels that the college, by the untiring efforts of its principals, teachers, PTA, Old Students Association (OSA) and with the committed support of the government has achieved the mission of spreading higher education. It is felt that the teachers and the staff may put in more efforts to achieve academic excellence individually and thereby contribute favorably for the academic excellence of the institution. The inherent locational advantages the institution can enjoy, may be exploited to the best benefit of the college and its community. The spoken languages of this area being Malayalam, Kannada, Tulu, Urdu, Konkani, Bijary and Marati; and the religious composition being Hinduism, Islam, Christianity and Jainism, Kasaragod is, probably an ideal place for unity in diversity.

It is observed that the institution has a lot of practices that are commendable and the observations made by the peer team as commendable were presented under the heading healthy practices. The college may try to continue the practices and also try to better the healthy practices. The peer team wishes to offer the following suggestions that may be meticulously implemented by the college to bring in greater efficiency and better social relevance.

The college may strengthen the research committee to initiate academic research and to undertake projects relevant to Kasaragod district. The research committee may also explore various sources of funds that can be deployed into research activities.

The college is yet to start any innovative vocational courses. The college may think of offering courses on medicinal plants, bio diversity, pisciculture, ecology and environment, oceanography, ethnobotany, and natural disasters.

The college may also offer post-graduate course in journalism, visual communication etc. to cater to the needs of the youth.

It is felt that a spirit of enterprise has to be inculcated in the minds of the students and people of this area. The college may act as a catalyst to promote entrepreneurship by offering various educational and training programs to the students and the public.

The college may offer as many add-on courses as possible to facilitate horizontal mobility of students and to provide opportunities for enhancing their competitiveness.

The government may augment the support given to the teachers in order to enhance their academic achievements and professional competencies.

The library may go for application of modern technologies in the field of information and communication technology. Reprographic facilities may be made available in the computer for the use of students and the staff. Also the library may establish linkages with other libraries for mutual benefit.
The college may go far establishing connectivity among different departments and facilities enabling the members to have easy access with each other.

Teachers may be encouraged to use the state of the arts ICT for establishing linkages with the academicians in the world around.

The activities of the counseling centre may be strengthened. One of its activities may be to probe into the causes for dropouts and find remedial actions.

The college may establish an information centre to guide the fresh applicants regarding choice of subjects.

The teachers may be encouraged to use modern teaching techniques and a centre for audiovisual equipments may be established.

Steps may be taken to fill up the vacant positions. Steps may be taken to establish a good performance appraisal system for teachers and students.

The office may go for computerization and office automation.

The performance of the co-operative store may be reviewed to offer continued service to the members and also sustain continued to its employee.

It is observed that a lot of creative talents exist in the teachers and students. The community is also giving a good support to the college. It is felt that frequent transfers of principals de-link the journey towards higher achievements. The government may have a policy of keeping the principals for at least three years in one college.

The college may design a vision directory that may guide courses of action of the college.

The chairperson of the peer team wishes to acknowledge and thank sincerely both the member and member co-ordinator of the peer team for their co-operation and participation. The peer team wishes to offer its heart felt thanks to the principal, teachers, staff and the NAAC co-ordinator and all concerned for extending a very nice hospitality.
