The college defined
Patkai Christian College is a liberal arts college established in the year 1974. The college firmly believes that education is for the whole man in a framework of spiritual and moral absolutes. Patkai, like every christian college, has the difficult task of retaining its traditional stance while seeking to make its educational philosophy relevant to the world around it. Committed to the principle that the truth is revealed by God through Christ “…in Whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Col. 2:3), Patkai seeks to place all its activities within the framework of biblical perspective on such critical issues as the nature of God, man, nature, and the world, and to relate its instruction to the needs of contemporary society.
The central purpose of the college is expressed in its motto: “Lux et Veritas: Light and Truth”. This purpose produces a concern for truth, righteousness and beauty and thereby gives meaning to the ideal of a christian liberal arts college. The founders of the college maintain that academic excellence and biblical christian faith and practice are essential to a meaningful and purposeful life. To this end, Patkai consciously seeks to aid the student in developing habits that contribute to his/her well-being – physical, psychological and spiritual – and also to enable him to participate constructively in community and church life.
“To impart quality education to the young people, especially the tribals, within the framework of spiritual and moral absolutes, catering to the socio-economic needs of the region and pursuit of science and technology for the welfare of the human society and the world as a whole.”
