CHRIST (DEEMED TO BE UNIVERSITY)

CHRIST (Deemed to be University) was born out of the educational vision of St Kuriakose Elias Chavara, an educationalist and social reformer of the nineteenth century in South India. He founded the first Catholic indigenous congregation, Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI), in 1831 which administers CHRIST (Deemed to be University).

Established in 1969 as Christ College, it undertook path-breaking initiatives in Indian higher education with the introduction of innovative and modern curricula, insistence on academic discipline, imparting of Holistic Education and adoption of global higher education practices with the support of creative and dedicated staff.

The University Grants Commission (UGC) of India conferred Autonomy to Christ College in 2004 and identified it as an Institution with Potential for Excellence in 2006. In 2008 under Section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956, the Ministry of Human Resource Development of the Government of India, declared the institution a Deemed to be University, in the name and style of CHRIST (Deemed to be University). One of the first institutions in India to be accredited in 1998 by the NAAC, and subsequently in 2004 and 2016, CHRIST (Deemed to be University) has the top grade ‘A’ in the 4-point scale.

 

Center for Social Action (CSA)

Centre for Social Action (CSA) is the development wing of CHRIST (Deemed to be University). It was set up in 1999 to coordinate social sensitization programmes for students and undertake community development projects for marginalized communities. It is a students’ movement for a humane and just society with children as the primary focus. CSA addresses issues related to child rights, socio-economic development of women, youths and farmers, community mobilization and environment/climate change issues.

As part of CHRIST (Deemed to be University), CSA primarily focuses on student communities and their sensitization on various issues affecting the poor and marginalized sections of the society. This is undertaken so as to facilitate sustainable changes in the lives of the poor and the oppressed through active participation of the student community and equip the students

with ideals andvalues for effective contributions to the society. CSA was initiated with the intention of enabling the student community to imbibe the values of social responsibility, as envisaged in the core values, vision and the mission of CHRIST(Deemed to be University).

CSA believes in strengthening the student community with a view to enable positive changes in society. This is one of the driving forces for the establishment of CSA and remains as the motivating factor for undertaking various developmental projects and social sensitization programmes. CSA intends to create a community of empathetic students who can work proactively for society.

Evan Anderson- USAC's -2013
