MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
I am honoured and proud to lead Stella Maris College as its 10th Principal. It is a privilege to head an institution of such outstanding merit as ours in the field of higher learning.
We have been a strong strand in the fabric of higher education in India ever since our founding in 1947. We have a well-established liberal education curriculum facilitated by committed, well-qualified faculty, and dedicated administrative and support staff. Underpinning in-classroom experiences are valuable out-of-classroom experiences through internships, research opportunities, global exposure through exchange programmes, and cultural events which will hone talent and aptitude. All our programmes train students to absorb knowledge, develop critical thinking skills and strong communication skills that prepare you, my dear students, for jobs in the region and abroad, and empower each one of you to face challenges with courage and become responsible citizens.
We will ensure that you enjoy a powerful and abiding sense of community and peaceful-coexistence through curricular training modules, encouraging cooperation among diverse student cohorts, instilling empathy and kindness in our interactions, ensuring mental and physical well-being, bringing in forms of conflict resolution, and fostering an inclusive attitude in the classroom and on campus. In addition, we will offer you avenues to explore your creative instincts, fulfill your drive to innovate and aspiration to achieve academic fulfilment. Our students are the most important people on campus and we strive to create opportunities for them to achieve their individual and collective goals.
Looking ahead, we will launch a new strategic plan that will enable us to build on our strengths, advance our mission and make our vision a reality in the next five years.
I encourage each one of you to become deeply involved in life on campus. We will offer you whatever support you need to live out fulfilling, enriching experiences during your time with us. We guarantee you will be changed persons at the end of your tenure here, changed into becoming the best persons you can possibly be.
With best regards
Dr. Sr. Stella Mary fmm
