The only Govt. College in the district of Pathanamthitta, GCE aims to educate the citizens and citizen-leaders for our society through our commitment to the liberative power of a liberal arts and sciences education. The College aspires to provide education and scholarship of the highest quality — to advance the frontiers of knowledge and to prepare individuals for life, work, and leadership. Achieving these aims depends on the efforts of   faculty, students, and staff across the college. Whatever our individual roles, and wherever we work within GCE, we owe it to one another to uphold certain basic values of the community. These include:

  • Respect for the rights, differences, and dignity of others
  • Honesty and integrity in all dealings
  • Conscientious pursuit of excellence in one’s work
  • Accountability for actions and conduct in the workplace

The more we embrace these values in our daily lives, the more we create and sustain an environment of trust, cooperation, lively inquiry, and mutual understanding — and advance a commitment to education and scholarship, which all of us share.
