Knowledge has no limitation and this is evidently exemplified in St. Philomena’s campus. Since 70 years it has been imparting knowledge to students from different parts of the world.
With a humble beginning in the year 1946 St. Philomena’s College has made remarkable achievements.  It stands today as an autonomous college of Excellence with A grade NACC accreditation.
I deem it a great privilege to continue as the Rector in the College, even after my superannuation and be a part of this academic endeavour that accommodates students from 20 states of the country and 35 nations of the world with 34 departments. The remarkable achievements have made the college a torch bearing institution of excellence in the University of Mysore.
The committed management, dedicated staff, the hard working support staff, excellent academic ambience are the strong pillars of this great institution which constantly endeavours to impart value based education. The motto “Love through knowledge” (Caritas in scientia) is the guiding beacon in the onward march from heritage roots to global excellence.
The Institution is a cradle of cultural integration, which with creative and active leaders of knowledge constantly generates critical thinking with a clear vision and mission. St. Philomena’s, year after year, with open arms welcomes a new batch of students as it sends out into the challenging world the outgoing batch of students to carry on the good work begun in the campus, viz., to make this world a better place to live in, not only to the present generation, but the generations to come.
