motto of the college is:
Sree Narayana College, Chempazhanthy was established by the Sree Narayana Trusts, Kollam, in memorial obeisance to the great social reformer and seer, Sree Narayana Guru. Chempazhanthy is a village of historical importance, as it is hallowed by the birth of the Guru (1855). It was the revolutionary vision of this great sage that metamorphosed the state of Kerala, which was called a lunatic asylum by Swamy Vivekananda, into one of the most progressive states of India. Chempazhanthy, the birth place of the Guru, is ten kilometers away from Thiruvananthapuram city. The Guru sowed the seed for a radical change in the Society of Kerala and launched a campaign against social evils and morbid traditions. The Philosophy and the reformatory of the Guru changed the lives of the downtrodden and marginalised people more than the activities of all other social reform movements in India put together.
The Sree Narayana College Chempazhanthy, situated in an undulating verdant campus of thirty acres, was formally inaugurated on 20 July 1964, by Sri. R. Sankar the then Chief Minister of Kerala. Prof. T.C. Rajan, the noted social scientist, was the first Principal. This college was established for providing educational opportunities to the young men and women of our country especially the members of the socially ang educationally backward community. It extends its service to the members of the other community also to the possible extent irrespective of caste or creed. The College imparts education and training to more than 2000 students every academic year by offering degree courses in History, Economics, Commerce, Political Science, English Language & Literature, Sociology, Psychology, Geology, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Zoology and Botany. With the introduction of a post graduate degree course in History in 1982-83, the college was elevated to the status of a post graduate institution. This was followed by the M.Sc degree in Chemistry in 1998-99. Keeping pace with technological innovations and knowledge at its frontiers, the institution undertook the computerization of all the departments, the general library and the administration. A well equipped computer laboratory with internet access, functions for the benefit of the students, teachers and researchers.
Conscious of its inceptional obligation to imbibe and disseminate the revolutionary ideal of one caste, one religion, one God, the college thrives for the extirpation of communalism, sectarianism and provincialism. It stands for Enlightenment through education and endeavours to mould a humane, intellectually accomplished, morally awakened and socially committed fraternity of young men and women.
