About Marian College, [MC] Idukki
Marian College, Idukki, has been inspired by the thoughts of Lord Jesus Christ, the Catholic church juridiction of Kanjirapally, ever since her height to the status of a diocese on the 12th of May 1977, has been sworn towards positive social mediation for the betterment of the society at large; forever accustom to a vision of Ã¢â¬Ëlife in abundanceÃ¢â¬â¢. Implanting quality education to the youngsters of the society has always been a primary concern of the Christian Missionary effort, and Marian college Kuttikkanam is an aim towards the pacification of such concern. A number of scholarships have been introduced in the college to help the needy candidates. The church jurisdiction confronts as a missionary activity of the church, for the cerebral, sentimental, divine and physical establishment of the pupil.
Marian aspires to be a transformational leader in education, facilitating and celebrating the full flowering of ‘life in abundance’.
Marian is envisioned as a centre of excellence in learning. Here knowledge is intended to become 'knowledge-plus' through introspection and fine-tuning (Saadhana) of oneself. Marian is a place where 'tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection'. Our effort should always be to excel ourselves. Our today has to be better than our yesterday. Our tomorrow has to be better than our today. At Marian quality is not an act; it is a habit.
“We believe that Jesus came so that we “may have life and have it in abundance” John10:10.
Marian College perceives education as a very important vehicle for the realisation of this abundance. This encompasses material well-being, intellectual maturity, moral uprightness,emotional stability and spiritual inspiration.
Along with students, our teachers, parents and management, society at large are also our 'constituents'. We want all of them to experience holistic abundance, and through them the entire mankind should come to experience it.
What this vision statement means to us:
Marian does not want to be a mere dispenser of information (knowledge), or a mere agent of formation (skill development). Our vision uses information and formation as stepping stones to the transformational process.
We believe that we are called to play a leading role in education, setting standards with goal,clarity and determination.
We see this leading role as one of facilitation: we create the learning environment, learning and change happen from within the individuals.
God has created each one of us with the potential for life in abundance. We see the process of ‘discovering’ this potential as a celebration. Jesus came so that “we may have life and have it in abundance.”
We are aware that transformation is a rippling process: it starts within us, the stakeholders,and then ripples out in to society at large. “We must become the change we seek in the world” (Gandhiji).
We, at Marian, commit ourselves to achieve our vision through:
Relentless pursuit of knowledge, realizing that the horizons of knowledge are ever expanding.
Fostering spiritual and humane values, being proud of our Indian ethos and the Christian message.
Networking and collaborating for synergy, knowing fully well that in today’s world none of us can be as smart as all of us together.
Establishing campus-community network, because we are aware of our obligation to reach out to our less privileged brothers and sisters.
Promoting sustainable living, being sensitive to the fact that our planet Earth is the only earth that we and our future generations have.
Ensuring a learning environment of creativity, adventure of ideas, constant innovation, enabling academic ambience and state of the art Information- Communication-Technology.
This is precisely the Marian mission; the growth of her sons and daughters in wisdom and stature, before God and people. We believe in education with character and values. We want to uphold values which are Sanathana, i.e., eternal and universal. We are proud of our Indian heritage and want to be spiritually anchored in Indian Ethos. Therefore she espouses a unique paradigm of education rooted in the composite multi religious, culturally pluralistic and heritageproud Indian ethos.
