This is the only center for higher studies owned and managed by the Government of Kerala to fulfill the aspirations of thousands of students passing out from around the 15 feeder higher secondary schools. The severe paucity of infrastructure facilities like good library, computer lab, staff quarters, hostels etc. has adversely affected the development of the college where in vast majority of the students come from poor and underprivileged sections.

The college has 6 departments viz., Mathematics, History, English, Oriental Languages, Commerce and Physical Education. Subjects like Statistics, Computer science, Political Science, Economics and Media Studies are also taught in the college as complementary courses. At present the college has 17 permanent teaching faculty and 16 guest faculty. Among the faculty, six have been awarded Ph.D and four have M.Phil Degree. The college has also got 19 members in the administrative wing.
With great visionaries at the apex of its administrative hierarchy and eminent scholars on the teaching faculty, Govt. College Mokeri set a fast pace of development adding four graduate Departments, two P.G Courses and a Research Centre. With the cream of students from all over Kerala converging to this premier institution and pride of Malabar, the sprawling campus of Mokeri became an enviable confluence of excellence.
