Madras Christian College with its rich heritage, inimitable culture and adorable founding principles viz., academic excellence, spiritual vitality and social relevance, has been serving humanity since 1837.
The College was one among the first few institutions in the Country to be granted Autonomy in 1978, and in 2016 rose to the level of “College with Potential for Excellence” by the University Grants Commission. God’s providence has enabled the College with innumerable growth and development in the recent past, which places the College as one of the top most institutions in India in Higher Education, and much sought after by overseas universities and colleges for academic cooperation.
Students of MCC (both past and present) have brought laurels in almost all walks of life, thus realizing the vision of the founding fathers. While the College witnessed new strides in diverse areas of academics, administration and amenities in 2016, it also experienced a severe loss of a substantial number of old trees due to Vardah Cyclone on 12th December 2016. Such an experience is not new to the campus, as similar challenges have been faced in 1966 and 1994.
May the season of advent, and the dawn of 2017 bring not only the joy and peace of the birth of the Saviour of the world, but also new phases of progression in the New Year, and with this hope we shall remain.
