Rev. Dr. Sr. Celine E. (Sr. Vinitha CSST) (Manager)
I am extremely delighted to welcome you to St. Teresa’s College. A vision, which was planted by Sr. Teresa of Rose of Lima, our foundress and Mother, a women with extraordinary vision and foresight who believed that social transformation was possible through educating and empowering women.
We have been empowering and transforming lives since 1925 when the college was established in the heart of the Cochin city. The college provides exciting educational opportunities for students from all backgrounds and locations. The faculty and staff are dedicated professionals who excel in connecting with students and providing an overall educational experience.
St. Teresa’s represents a way of life to the students, and creates a community of extended families and friends, fostering life long bonds, a shared sense of responsibility and reliance to each other.
Rev. Sr. Emeline CSST (Director)
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”.
Holistic education paves the way to knowledge, skills, creativity and empowerment. Today’s world demands that we think out of the box. The motto of St.Teresa’s College is to empower today’s women for tomorrow.
The seed that was sown by our foundress, Mother Teresa of St. Rose of Lima, has now grown into a gigantic tree which has provided guidance, solace and means of livelihood to thousands of young women. Women, who form half of the population, are often marginalized due to lack of opportunities. The college offers the key to open doorways into a bright future where women can stand on their own feet, gain confidence and self esteem and speak up for their rights. The college provides a conducive ambience for students to dream, and gives practical advice on how to fulfil their ambitions.
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn”.
The intellectual and emotional growth of the students is the aim of our highly qualified and experienced faculty who strive to establish a close bond with students that lasts a lifetime. Caring for the underprivileged sections of society and the environment plays a huge role in the character building of students.
I am sure that like our illustrious alumnae of the past, the students of the future will also tread fresh paths, and through their innovative and critical thinking create a better world for all.
