About The College
Shree Gokarnanatheshwara College of Education
Shree Gokarnanatheshwara College of Education is governed and managed by a charitable trust – Shree Venkatesha Shiva Bhakthi Yoga Sangha, Karnataka Societies Act. The governing body believes in transforming the downtrodden section of the society into strong and self reliant cittizens through the bond of unity and the universal message of Brahma Shree Narayana Guru ‘Educate to be free organize to be strong’.
It was an era, when higher education was considered as the privilege of a few in the society. Many young aspirants of higher education, with poor upbringing knocking at the doors of many institutions in Mangalore, had to return emptyhanded unable to get a seat to pursue their studies. Naturally they had to discontinue their education with a lot of frustration. At that time, a farsighted leader Sri Janardhan Poojary, Ex-Minister of State for Finance, Government of India, expressed his concern before the members of Shree Venkatesha Shiva Bhakthi Yoga Sangha that, there is no substitute to education to bring an individual from the lower rung to the position of strength and confidence. Therefore, to infuse strength and confidence in the underprivileged, neglected, and not so meritorious sections of the society, the establishment of an educational institution is the only way out.
Objectives – Shree Gokarnanatheshwara College of Education
Core objective to lay stress on care and concern for the underprivileged sections apart from other educational, idealisms. It is equally important that values are reflected in the functioning of our institution. Also establish a learning center for ‘deprived ones’ so as to shape their future in the right perspective. With this noble and scholastic thinking, Shree Gokarnanatheshwara College came into existence.
