Educational institutions are the cradles of future professionals, scientists, statesmen and educationalists who shape the destiny of any community, society or nation. Higher Education is the platform to develop professional capacities and improve the career choices of the youth. Higher education takes the lead in providing cutting-edge skills necessary to thrive in an increasingly competitive global environment. However development and modernization of higher education in Kerala has not attained the desired directions.
Students are demanding education that is convenient, affordable and enjoyable. The demand for higher education in the 125 year old segment especially by the children of middle class families is steadily rising. The last decade has seen the emergence of new educational approaches and academic strategies. As such, there is a need for creation of an environment that is conducive for learning and research in all branches of academic disciplines at all levels and magnitude in remembering the famous words of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru “The Future of our Nation is in its Class room” that underlines the importance of quality education.
