About Us

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 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. The multi-disciplinary University which focuses on teaching research and service offers Bachelors to Doctoral programmes in humanities, social sciences, science, commerce, management, engineering, education, and law to over 21000 students. The campus is a living example for the harmonious multiculturalism with students from all the states of India and around 60 different countries. CHRIST (Deemed to be University) publishes six peer-reviewed research journals and has published more than 300 books in Kannada and English. A promoter of sports, music and literary activities, it is a nurturing ground for creative excellence.

Vision & Mission


CHRIST (Deemed to be University), a premier educational institution, is an academic fraternity of individuals dedicated to the motto of  'EXCELLENCE AND SERVICE.' 

We strive to reach out to the star of perfection through an earnest academic pursuit for 'excellence,' and our efforts blossom into 'service' through our creative and empathetic involvement in the society to transform it. 

Education prepares one to face the challenges of life by bringing out the best in him/her. If this is well accepted, education should be relevant to the needs of the time and address the problems of the day. Being inspired by Blessed Kuriakose Elias Chavara, the founder of Carmelites of Mary Immaculate and the pioneer in innovative education, CHRIST (Deemed to be University) was proactive to define and redefine its mission and strategies reading the signs of the time.


"CHRIST (Deemed to be University) is a nurturing ground for an individual's holistic development to make an effective contribution to the society in a dynamic environment."

Vice Chancellor's Message

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.
