WMO Arts and Science College, established in 1995 by Wayanad Muslim Orphanage, is an institute run by the Muslim minority community. The majority of the population in the district consists of Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe, and Other Backward Communities. Wayanad is one of the backward districts of India, with a significant shortage of facilities for acquiring higher education. As a result, the society, which consists mainly of Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe and Other Backward Communities in the premise of the college, had a deprivation in obtaining higher education. In this scenario, the orphanage committee had planned to establish the college to uplift the youth, especially the orphans, by educating them irrespective of caste, religion, or creed. Since then, the college has been playing a vital role in igniting thousands of students in and around the district of Wayanad, equipping them with essential standards in all sectors of life. The college's original mission to educate the disadvantaged regardless of caste, religion, or creed significantly influenced the elevation of society, which changed public perceptions about higher education.
