"Education is the most powerful weapon, which we can use to change the World" said Nelson Mandela, the Noble Laureate and statesman. This message is meant for the faculty and Alumni of Christ College, established in 1944 at Cuttack, the capital of British Odisha, at the time when there were few institutions of higher learning for collegiate education, except few like Ravenshaw and Khalikote Colleges. The Cuttack Christian Education Board, the pioneers in the growth and spread of Education in the State, took up another missionary step in establishing a College named after Jesus Christ. It emerged as the second College of Cuttack with sprawling area of 12.368 acres with giant infrastructure and ample span for future expansion, in the heart of the city. I being the 25th Principal of this illustrious institution from 1st January 2019, dream to open couple of postgraduate courses, and some job oriented applied courses with full co-operation of Governing Body, faculties, staff, students and Alumni to make an ideal citadel of learning.
