It was an era, when higher education was considered as the privilege of a few in the society. Many young aspirants of higher education, with poor upbringing knocking at the doors of many institutions in Mangalore, had to return emptyhanded unable to get a seat to pursue their studies. Naturally they had to discontinue their education with a lot of frustration. At that time, a farsighted leader Sri Janardhan Poojary, Ex-Minister of State for Finance, Government of India, expressed his concern before the members of Shree Venkatesha Shiva Bhakthi Yoga Sangha that, there is no substitute to education to bring an individual from the lower rung to the position of strength and confidence. Therefore, to infuse strength and confidence in the underprivileged, neglected, and not so meritorious sections of the society, the establishment of an educational institution is the only way out. Accordingly Shree Gokarnanatheshwara College, saw the light of the day in the year 1982 and has dedicated itself since then, for the cause of social justice and this institution would not have come into existence, but for his timely help and vision.
The Scholastic achievements of the students stand out as a testimony to the concerted endeavour, which is put in by three different levels, i.e. teachers, support staff and enlightened management. Shree Gokarnanatheshwara College has grown in its own unique style and has been shaping the destiny of thousands of students with good head and heart, blessed with competence and excellence.
It is our core objective to lay stress on care and concern for the underprivileged sections apart from other educational, idealisms. It is equally important that values are reflected in the functioning of our institution. It is the institutional vision to establish a learning center for ‘deprived ones’ so as to shape their future in the right perspective. With this noble and scholastic thinking, Shree Gokarnanatheshwara College came into existence.
