From The Chairman's Desk
I have a strong belief in the word ‘PRATHYUTHPANNA MATHITHVA’ coined by Poet Laureate KUVEMPU, which means, ‘Having presence of mind’ or ‘a Prompt understanding’ which is not only significant but also a global expectation. NCF is also emphasized the creation of knowledge rather than imparting knowledge. Our college is aimed at it. Students of contemporary age are expected to fit to the international scenario. We have established a Teacher’s Training College with all these in view. Management and Faculty are committed to attain it.
From The Secretary's Desk

All the stakeholders will actively engage in the process of education as well as in the Teacher’s training. Our staff members of ShankaraGowda college of Education are sincerely attempting to materialize this in a successful manner.
