College Getting Ready for NAAC Re – Accreditation

The Krishna Menon Memorial ( KMM ) Government Women’s College here has started efforts to secure re – accreditation of the National Assessment and Accreditation Council ( NAAC ).

The college, which was granted B Plus grade by the NAAC five years ago, was now in the process of subjecting itself to re – accreditation by the council, college Principal K. Surendran said in a release here on September 21, 2011.

The college, started in 1975, had already recorded achievements in academic and sports activities, he said.

But limited number of courses being offered in the college was being pointed out as its major shortcoming, he said.

Of the 28 government colleges in the State, KMM Government Women’s College is one of the two women’s colleges, the other being in Thiruvananthapuram. While the Government Women’s College in Thiruvananthapuram has 16 undergraduate ( UG ) courses and as many postgraduate ( PG ) courses, the KMM Government Women’s College has only seven UG courses and one PG course, Prof. Surendran said.

He said though proposals had been submitted to the government for more courses, they were not approved. The peer team members of NAAC might raise this as a shortcoming.
