Al Shifa College of Arts & Science (ACAS) is into the second year of establishment. But I am sure what the College has made possible in an academic year puts to shade what many institutions struggle to achieve in decades. With all the unprecedented restrictions around, the College has delivered 360-degree quality performances. This performance chart of the College in its opening year is a clear indication of our vision and the direction in which we are headed. Al Shifa College of Arts & Science entered the Higher Education Scene of Kerala in 2020 when a new Policy was being debated and new Normals were introduced. Obviously we stepped in with big challenges before us and with bigger responsibilities to perform Being born in the midst of epochal transformations of different kinds is challenging. Globally, the pandemic has forced us to press the refresh button. Not just in education, but all around the paradigms and standards are reworked. The impact of it on Higher Education is most profound. Nationally, the country is transforming itself to align with the New Educational Policy (NEP), a policy which will bring far reaching changes in the way Education is experienced by all the stakeholders.
