That the people shall know, for, knowledge is power. Education opens one’s inner eye to the inestimable glory and enduring beauty of wisdom. Committed to serving the nation and humanity, this college founded in His name, envisages the academic pursuit of truth and the search for righteous living as the supreme task.
The sacred mission of the college enshrines creative scholarship and enrichment of young minds not merely in acquired knowledge, but in the spirit of enquiry, harmonizing the spiritual and intellectual adventures. Fostering an excellent ‘espirit de corps’ (feeling of togetherness), we aspire to mould competent persons armed with academic excellence, ethical principles, social sensitivity and spiritual sublimity equipped for innovative leadership enabling their “Lux in Tenebris Lucet”(Light shines in Darkness).
