Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara, the founder of the religious congregation Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (C.M.I) is our role model and his vision is made manifest in our institution.

He has left his indelible marks in the spheres of education, social reform, media, culture and religious formation. India’s first indigenous religious congregation for  men, C.M.I was his brainchild. In 1831, along with the support of Fr. Thomas Palackal and Fr. Thomas Porukara, the C.M.I was established which sparked off a spiritual renovation in the Church.






A well-established library is the backbone for any academic institution. As a focal point for teaching, learning, and research, it provides standard information resources. It acts as a dynamic instrument of the teaching learning process of higher education. Libraries are not merely storehouse of reading material collected for preservation but it functions as a dynamic instrument of education for the scholars and educationists. Thereby they would keep their knowledge update on order to know recent developments in their respective subjects.


It is noteworthy that recently 10,000 books have been purchased exclusively for the library.
