St. Joseph’s College Pilathara was established in 2005 by the Diocese of Kannur with the vision of providing quality education to the aspiring youth of educationally progressing northern Kerala in context of the New Education Policy. The inception of St.Joseph’s college in 2005 with two courses B.Com and BSW was necessitated by the huge demand for higher education which could not be sufficiently met by the few existing institutions and was legitimatized by the consequent change in national policy to start colleges with un-aided status at the turn of the last century. The college is situated at the heart of Pilathara town in a 10 Acre campus on NH 66. Rt. Rev. Dr. Alex Vadakkumthala is the President of the Governing body of St.Joseph’s College.
India’s future is in the upcoming youth of India and the herculean task of mentoring a significant number of them to people with quality, sensitiveness and skill is assigned to the higher education institutions. St. Joseph’s College, Pilathara, a remarkable HEI in the district, has dutifully oriented its functioning right from the first day of its inception to achieve this well-defined goal of the nation. The college has a well-thought-out and periodically and critically reviewed system which ensures contribution to national development and the fostering of global competencies among students.
St. Josephs College, Pilathara was established in 2005 by the Diocese of Kannur with a vision to provide quality education to the aspirants of Northern Kerala. It was a region where the demand for higher education exceeded the enrollment capacity of existing Institutions and desired the establishment of new higher education institutions. This is the social context of the inception of St. Joseph’s college. It is situated on the NH 17 High Way in a ten-acre plot of land at the Pilathara Junction.
