Walk With a Scholar(WWS)

Walk With a Scholar (WWS) Programme is a specified mentoring programme started and funded under the “New Initiatives in Higher Education” of the department of Collegiate Education, Government of Kerala. The programme aims at mentoring the topper level students for a bright future. This scheme introduces the idea of mentoring to under graduate students and builds on the concept of mentor as a ‘Guide’ and ‘Friend’. Mentoring is a process where a mentor with greater experience and wisdom guides the mentee to develop both personally and professionally.
As the part of the program, WWS commenced in our college from 2014- 15 academic year under the coordination of Dr. Hemamalini (Department of Malayalam). Dr. Bincy Joseph (Department of Chemistry) was the college level coordinator for the academic years 2015-16 and 2016-17. The programme was not executed by the Government in the year 2017-18. The programme was restarted in the academic year 2018-19. Dr. Sr. Smitha Rose C G. (Department of Mathematics), is the college level coordinator from then onwards. At present, there are 90 mentees under this scheme and 15 teachers of the college are deputed as internal mentors of these mentees. Each internal mentor is assigned the charge of six mentees. There are also external mentoring sessions according to the suggestions given by the state level coordinator. Free Motivational camps and visits are the main attractions of this programme. Our Alma Mater is giving due concern for the excellent and complete execution of the programme.
