It is my privilege to welcome you to the big family of Jesus and Mary College.
This institution is run by the Sisters of Jesus and Mary Congregation that originated in France in 1818. It was founded by a noble lady St. Claudine Thevenet. Claudine was moved by the atrocities and miseries of her time and she was convinced that only knowledge and love of God could transform the society of her time. Her aim was to make God known and loved through Christian education of the young, especially the poor. The Congregation has spread far and wide into all continents. In 1842, the sisters came to India. Jesus and Mary College was established in 1968, and has been imparting higher education in the fields of Arts and Commerce.
The College began with the vision of educating young women to help them bring about development in themselves, their homes and society. We are committed to give our students a sense of God and the ability to recognize the Divine in themselves and their fellow beings, and to thus respect the dignity and uniqueness of each individual. Our endeavour has been to offer an integrated, all round education, that focuses on intellectual, cultural, social, aesthetic and spiritual development of our students to make them compassionate and committed human beings.
It has been institution’s consistent endeavour to provide quality education to its students, inculcate discipline as well as provide an opportunity for all round personal development. We are fortunate to have dedicated, committed and competent faculty, supported by a motivated and cooperative non teaching staff. The college offers various extra curricular activities through cultural societies like Dramatics Society, the Western Music and Debating, to name a few. Inter College events and the College Annual Festival give the students an opportunity to express their talent and leadership skills. The College also encourages social awareness in its students by offering them an opportunity to work in various programmes like the Women Development Cell, the National Service and the Jesus and Mary College Educational Programme (SMCEP). Poor and needy students are also being provided help by the College.
JMC is constantly striving to achieve high academic standards by organizing seminars, talks, conferences, symposiums and workshops for teachers, students and non-teaching staff.
JMC welcomes students of all religions. We live work, play and grow together as a family. We know that it is possible to work together for common goals and we are enriched by such an experience. Let us make a pledge to live in peace, to promote humanity and fraternity.
Dear students, make use of every opportunity available at JMC to develop your abilities and potential. Together let us strive to work for change in society, translating our vision into reality.
