To Turn Out Intellectually Enlightened, Morally Upright, Spiritually Oriented, Socially Committed and Emotionally Balanced Young Persons.
Jyoti Nivas Degree College retains a steadfast commitment to a single central ideal… the provision of a balanced and holistic education for women.
With a primary focus on quality education in the liberal Arts, Science & Commerce, the college also promotes and makes available myriad resources and opportunities to ensure that its students emerge as intellectually enlightened, morally upright, spiritually inspired, emotionally balanced and socially committed young women. It strives to nurture and enhance the innate wealth of talent and potential within each student encouraging everyone to truly live the motto of the college “Let Your Light Shine.”
Carrying out the Credo
As a Christian college for women, challenged by revolutionary changes in every sphere of life, Jyoti Nivas College is aware that higher education involves infinitely more than the acquisition of mere qualification.
While providing our students with the higher quality of academic instruction and state of the art infrastructure which keeps abreast of the latest in science and technology, we also lay emphasis on the formation of the personal conscience, on the development of a strong code of ethics and values as well as openness of mind which hungers to know and to learn from “the best that is known and thought in the world.”
Our faculty members possess not only fine minds and scholarly expertise, but also a strong commitment to teaching as a vocation, while employing the best of innovative methods and technology in their teaching practice. The Mentor-Ward system, one of the outstanding practices of this institution, promotes and sustains a strong one-on-one interaction between teachers and students in an atmosphere of care and concern.
Six Young peasant girls in the little village of Tarbes in France were divinely inspired way back in 1843, to a life of contemplation and prayer, the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Tarbes was thus born.
From contemplation to communion to community building – a process of sensitization to the needs of suffering humanity and an answer to the call to care for the sick and the abandoned – the Sisters responded to the challenge with generosity and commitment. Education soon became another field in which they were called to serve – schools and later, colleges, grew out to their timeless efforts. One of the many renowned educational institutions that their labour of love gave birth to was Jyoti Nivas Degree College, established in 1966. It has grown through the years, on the faith, courage and optimism of its founders.
