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.
