Stella Maris College aligns itself with the educational philosophy of Cardinal John Newman who professed that no institution exits meaningfully on its own but finds meaning only in its interrelationship and interaction with others. Academic partnerships are becoming increasingly important in today’s world as we become more and more connected around the globe. It is therefore the mandate and vision of Stella Maris College to foster the spirit of collaborative learning through shared knowledge across disciplines while ensuring that local interests meet and establish resourceful academic links with the global.
