Apart from this, by celebrating world environment day, a distinct message to love green colour is conveyed which is a veritable insurance to our future. The college is invariably disabled friendly with ramps wherever necessary and tactile signs are also put up at the campus. The energy and water conservation and steps for the materialization of green campus at the college are remarkable. As part of maintaining accountability, energy and green audits are regularly undertaken. The curriculum encompassing topics on inclusiveness, constitutional obligations, tolerance and harmony are taught to students. Students are sensitized to communal harmony and discharge of constitutional obligations. The college is extraordinarily distinctive in its social commitment towards preservation of a historical museum aiming at archiving the locale. It is a factual but less known fact that Kodungallur has been a hospitable land for many foreigners with diversified socio-cultural and religious background having an avowed goal of flourishing trade. Thanks to this, there was an incessant cultural and pluralistic exchange between the natives of Kodungallur and foreigners. As a grim tribute to this, the college is committed to archiving the locale in the form of a museum comprising of photo gallery of the chieftains lived earlier, replica of festivals and an elegant display of occupations of yesteryears. In addition to this, the college is systematically engineered to get on with two best practices viz implementation of ‘touch of love and promotion of science education. While the former is mainly an outreach program to offer community level services by the campus, the latter is a pilot project piloted by the college aiming at inculcating scientific temper among students. Most of the ailing aged community were distributed medicines free of cost to sustain their life. To promote science education, symposiums, lecture series and laboratory experiments were conducted. This helped students to usher into the threshold of scientific knowledge.
