St.Teresa’s College

St. Teresa’s College, Autonomous is committed to enriching the lives of our students by empowering them. We provide holistic education that enables them to actively participate in community life. Womens’ education is a crucial factor that contributes to nation building and for the past ninety years we have been educating young women from different strata of our society.
The concept of education needs to change keeping in mind the needs of the present generation of learners and we strive to equip them with the necessary skill sets to meet the different challenges that they may be required to meet.

St.Teresa’s College Values

St.Teresa’s College envisions a life-oriented education that empowers women through a humanizing and liberative process, to be agents of transformation and development at different levels of life. They are empowered to respond actively to concerns and conflicts inherent in today’s world. Our thrust is in the creation of a civilization of love as envisaged and promoted by our Foundress, Mother Teresa of St. Rose of Lima.

  1. To promote a College/Community/Society/Nation where spiritual, moral and genuine values are lived and witnessed.
  2. To contribute to the transformation of society through an openness to reality and living the challenges of being socially conscious and socially responsible.
  3. To synergize women and those prevented from exercising their right to be human, through enlightening them regarding their basic human rights and helping them to achieve the same.
  4. To promote inter-cultural and inter-religious harmony and communion through promoting genuine dialogue, whereby we work together for the common good of the human family.
  5. To facilitate leadership among the students enabling them to be genuinely other centred, proactively enthusiastic, and spiritually and socially motivated towards personal, group and social liberation.
  6. To provide quality, integral education which is life, vocation and career oriented.
  7. To work towards the integrity of creation through being conscious of and alert to the state of devastation and destruction of creation and serious perils that humankind is plunged into. We promote programmes/movements that foster inter-connectedness, kinship and eco-justice.
  8. To recognize the advantage of using modern tools and technological innovations for teaching- learning and governance and its visible impact in empowering students.
