Since its founding in 1968, the University of Calicut has grown to become Kerala’s prestigious and largest University, known for the excellence of its teaching, its research, and its service. We have more than 300000 student enrollment per year spanning across five Districts of Kerala. Our School of Distance Education and Private Registration are of great help to those who prefer it. (though there are issues which deserve immediate attention).
Our research programmes range across all disciplines and total commitment is essential to achieve the goals. As we look to the future one thing is certain –technology and knowledge will be the key resources and also these will be the most sought-after within the Country and around the world. Therefore it is our paramount duty to help generate ideas that will benefit society, educate and train people to work in fields where they will be valued for their specialized knowledge. Our acumen to research, communicate and solve issues are to be improved from time to time. To meet these challenges alliances with research institutions, partnership with government and other agencies are to be undertaken expeditiously. We should leave no stone unturned to ensure the quality of our academic programs, excellence of our teaching, learning and research.
As Vice-Chancellor, I take it as an honor and privilege to convey that University of Calicut is conferred with the distinction of A grade in the recent NAAC accreditation. This is the byproduct of dedication and concerted efforts from all corners. Still we have miles to go and let us all shoulder the responsibility to take this institution to greater heights.
Let us remember the great saying,
"Apply your heart to instruction and your ear to words of knowledge" .
Vice - Chancellor, University of Calicut
