Invited Lecture Series
One of the striking features of the times we live in , is the expanding frontiers of knowledge at an exponential pace. The conventional boundaries of discrete disciplines are blurring and blooming into new homogenous domains , keeping those scanning the horizon unable to catch up with. Against this scenario, Invited Lecture Series
was introduced in the college to keep the students abreast of the latest developments in arts/commerce/ humanities /information technology etc. Well known experts from relevant domains are invited to the college to share their expertise and experience to motivate them to undertake a quest for fresh pastures of knowledge on their own.

It is generally acknowledged that Undergraduates from Kerala , though strong in their hard skills , often cut a poor figure in competitive exams / interviews owing to an inadequate command of English language. Against this unfortunate backdrop, Basic English Language Test

Eco Guard Corps was raised in the college with a view to nurturing a generation of ecologically conscious volunteer corps wedded to the protection of the environment and committed to the preservation of a clean and green campus. Under the aegis of EGC
sensitization campaignsare periodically conducted.
Education In Human Values
It is indeed a matter of grave concern for all right thinking citizens that post independent india has witnessed a steady deterioration in moral and spiritual values ,considerably degrading the tenor and temper of the life and discourse of the people. Decades back, TS Eliot , the iconic British poet , who looked into the heart of darkness of contemporary civilization lamented :
. Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
. Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
While traversing on the Information Hyperway, principles, values and ethics appear to be ebbing away from areas of our concern. The future of the world rests on nurturing a robust generation of youth, fired by abiding universal human values like Love, Truth, Peace, Righteous Conduct, Compassion etc. We, at Malabar College, are making a humble attempt to inculcate these core values in students through special discourses by eminent persons.
