Golden Jubilee


CHRIST (Deemed to be University) is 50 years young!


CHRIST (Deemed to be University) is born out of the educational vision of St Kuriakose Chavara (1805-1871), a visionary who founded the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI) congregation in 1831 in South India. CHRIST (Deemed to be University) made a humble beginning on 15 July 1969 as an affiliated college, with the Vision of ‘Excellence and Service’ with four programmes, 379 students, 20 teaching and 8 non-teaching staff. It was a long cherished dream realized through the untiring efforts of Bishop Jonas Thaliath CMI that made the founding of this Institution possible. It became a preferred educational institution in the city of Bangalore within the first three decades.

From 1990 onwards it reached newer milestones with introduction of Postgraduate programmes, innovative and modern curricula, insistence on academic discipline, and imparting of Holistic Education. It has the rare distinction of being the first institution in Karnataka to be accredited by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) UGC for quality education in 1998. In 2004, UGC conferred Autonomy on the Institution. In 2005, it became the first College in South India to be reaccredited with A+ by NAAC. UGC identified it as an Institution with Potential for Excellence in 2006.

In 2008 Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India declared it a Deemed to be University, in the name and style of Christ University under Section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956. It was accredited by NAAC with the highest Grade ‘A’ in 2016.Today, the University offers 48 undergraduate, 47 postgraduate, 16 MPhil and 17 PhD programmes in humanities, social sciences, science, commerce, management, engineering, education, law, and architecture to over 21000 students from all the states of India and about 60 different countries. From 1969 – 2019.

CHRIST (Deemed to be University) completes 50 glorious years of its existence and sterling contribution to the cause of Higher education in India.

The University is gearing up for yearlong celebrations to commemorate this Golden Milestone - the Golden Jubilee.
