HIS BEATITUDE MORAN MOR CYRIL BASELIOS CATHOLICOS has the avowed mission of interpreting the will of God for the welfare of humanity. Born in 1935, at Ullannoor in the district of Pathanamthitta, in a family blessed with two priests, four nuns and an Archbishop, today, HIS BEATITUDE MORAN MOR CYRIL BASELIOS CATHOLICOS is the Religious Head of the Malankara Catholic Church and the Vice-President of the Catholic Bishop\\\'s Conference of India.
His deep rooted knowledge in Theology, Philosophy, Psychology and Economics has a source in spirituality. It is the vision of His Grace that this spiritual knowledge should be in the material growth of humanity. His Grace believes that technology should be an integral part of education, for the creation of the society of the 21st century.
A keen sense of observation, shrewd intellect, skill for planning and organisation, administrative skills, sense of value and spiritual leadership constitute the personality of His Grace. While he interprets the Gospel of Love for the welfare of the people he finds tolerance the ancient trait of Indian tradition a powerful tool in the process of imparting education to generations, in the footsteps of the Founder Visionary His Grace Mar Ivanios.
The future of humanity depends very much on the cultural, scientific and technological developments which evolve from the centres of Higher Education. The mission of a Catholic Higher Education Institution or a University is to be a pioneer in the creation of an era so as to preserve the God-given nobility of human existence, recognizing its moral and spiritual dimensions. This truth has to be all the more insisted upon as every Centre of Excellence in Higher Education should contribute to the future development of society through the training of qualified individuals and promotion of scientific research for welfare of mankind and preserving human values and upholding human dignity.
Mar Ivanios College since its inception in 1949 with its motto \\\"Veritas Vos Liberabit\\\", has been committed to the promotion of the quality of life through its pursuit of knowledge and research and the efforts towards the development of the society. Having been awarded the status of College with Potential for Excellence (CPE) by the U.G.C., Mar Ivanios College has a great responsibility in its march towards the attainment of this goal and I wish and hope that Mar Ivanios college will become a deemed to be university whereby it will be able to serve effectively the society at large.
