It is always a delight to welcome all of you to CHRIST (Deemed to be University)!
I cherish this time of the year when admissions are in process and the campuses are poised to welcome a new batch of vibrant and vivacious students who will bring with them newer ideas, sustainable plans and ground breaking projects. This combination of fresh ideas and verve is what has always imbued our enthusiasm to work towards realizing our vision of ‘Excellence and Service’.
CHRIST is driven by the vision, mission and core values that the Christites have assimilated as a habit. We are convinced now more than ever, when we are celebrating fifty golden years of our existence doing yeoman service to Indian Higher Education, that our aspiration to becoming a world class University is indeed achievable. When there is a deep sense of identity as a Christite, when our personal, societal and academic involvement is perfectly balanced and engaging contributing to our growth and that of the communities we are part of and our local and global understanding is based on traditions and culture and responds to worldwide needs and concerns, we are well on our way to success.
At CHRIST, holistic training is of paramount importance. We believe that education here will prepare you for a highly networked and competitive world. The whole person training facilitated here will support your interests, encourage you to develop your own informed perspectives, inculcate managerial and administrative skills and develop relevant pedagogical and research methods. In short, we transform you to diligent students, smart team players, ethical leaders and conscientious citizens.
Becoming a Christite however is your responsibility. You should be a keen observer and identify opportunities that will benefit you and help you grow, as CHRIST offers you plenty of choices and chances. Have the confidence to be a good team player, have shared visions for attaining your goals which should be in tandem with that of the Institution, have a productive relationship with other stake holders of the University and be discerning in your choices and decisions.
Let us work towards enriching ourselves with meaningful curricular and extracurricular transactions, let us make our dreams a reality and let us explore our reality and the future as a family!
