about Christ (Deemed to be University)
With an academic fraternity dedicated and committed to the motto of ‘Excellence and Service’, Christ University is a premier educational institution established in July 1969, as the erstwhile Christ College. The college was conferred autonomy by the University Grants Commission (UGC) of India in 2004, thereby becoming Christ University. The first college in South India to be accredited with an A+ by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), the university has been declared as Deemed to be University by the Ministry of HRD in 2008.
The university has and continues to strive for perfection through an earnest academic pursuit of excellence and service through its creative and empathetic involvement in the society. Above and beyond academics, the university’s aim is to provide a nurturing ground for an individual’s holistic development to make effective contributions to the society in the dynamic environment of today’s world.
