Vision, Mission & Motto

Our Vision
St. Vincent College of Commerce is dedicated to the Jesuit hallmark of a value-based and high quality education to working youth, moulding them to be global citizens and men and women for others.

Our Mission
To function as a ‘Night College’ providing quality commerce education to working youth who wish to pursue commerce education while continuing to be employed.

Our Motto
St. Vincent College strives to make its humble contribution to dispel the darkness that surrounds our lives, its origin, be it ignorance, material deprivation or religious bigotry. No doubt, this is an enterprise greater than ourselves and wider than our institutions. The college motto has been inspired by the following verse from Brihandaranyaka Upanishad:

Asato ma sadgamaya
Tamaso ma jyotirgamaya
Mrutorma amrutamgamaya

From the unreal lead me to the real;
From the darkness lead me to light;
From death lead me to immortality.

From Vedic times it has been our great religious tradition that God is regarded as man’s true inner light. By adopting this ancient dream of our land in our motto we are pledging ourselves not to keep this light hidden within us, not to be shy about it, but to let it shine forth in our actions so as to illumine the path of many around us. By a sense of our duty to our teaching profession, by our fidelity to rules and regulations, by our commitment to a spirit of service to our fellowmen and women, more specially the poor, the ignorant and downtrodden, we wish to spell out this motto in our lives. This implies a greater insertion into the community around us, developing sensitivity to problems affecting our countrymen especially the poor, the illiterate and downtrodden.
