A vision translated into action becomes a mission. It is the vision and mission of the college to impart quality education to the land-locked hence marginalized young ones of a migrant population. Good education is the key to the magic world of opportunities in todays’ global village. This had to be accessible to the people of the High Ranges, which is incandescent with the fragrance of coffee, tea, pepper and cardamom. The word which was at the beginning had to be transferred and planted in this fertile soil so that it took life and lived and expressed itself in fecundity.
Aptly enough, the motto of the college is “Lighted to Enlighten”. To borrow a phrase from the erstwhile President of India Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, the vision and mission of the college is to ignite un ignited young minds so that they can go forth as torch bearers to the world.
