“Innovation is seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought”

- Albert Szent Gyorgyi



MIC has envisioned encouraging creation of “Institution’s Innovation Council (IIC’s) across selected HEIs. In this manner IIC was established in our college, during the Academic year 2018 – 2019. Since then, the council has conducted innovations and entrepreneurship related activities, organized Hackathons, Idea competitions and Exhibition cum sale of products. IIC has been strengthened this year with setting up of number of committees as per guidelines of MHRD. With the collaborative support of Experts, IIC has taken a new shape. Sharing on success stories by entrepreneurs is a boost to our budding innovators. I appreciate the coordinated efforts of the members of IIC their innovating thinking, motivation and enthusiasm to action. My good wishes for the Fruitfulness of all activities of IIC.

May God shower His abundant Blessings

Dr.(Sr) Anne Perpet Sophy

Vice President Message





“Innovation distinguishes a leader from a follower”

-Steve jobs, Founder, Apple Inc..



Yes, dear friends, innovation is a just a state of mind that helps to cross the boundaries of the world within nanoseconds in terms of novel ideas, processes, application, business models etc. When we cross our frontiers with novelty and creativity, automatically the world tends to look up to us for our insights and enlightenments. Thus we become leaders who think out of the box and not merely exist as followers of leaders.

Every person, born on this planet is unique, irreplaceable and capable in her /his own way. We are unique in terms of our pupils, thumb impression and DNA. There is no other person like you and me on this planet. Believing these notions, the Institutional Innovation Council (IIC) of our college provides an exquisite platform to explore the unique talents and capacities of our faculty and students to empower them as world class leaders in terms of their innovations and entrepreneurship.

I am happy that I am also the part of this team to help thousands and thousands of young women to become future entrepreneurs and innovators who could be brought into the limelight for their creativity and innovation in the form of startups. To facilitate this arena, our college provides wide opportunities for both teachers and students through its flexibility in academic pursuance and implementation of startup policies. I am sure this startup policy of our college will certainly enhance the budding entrepreneurs to excel in their financial empowerment.

Dear friends, the opportunity is knocking at the door of every Crossian. Let us be open and grab this opportunity and become leaders. By our very life we become torch bearers of the society who show the way to budding innovators and entrepreneurs in our locality. This is our social responsibility and commitment with which we move onward. Being successful does not matter but being significant in our own ways certainly lifts our institution to greater heights and our life becomes productive. Let us aspire for this through the IIC of our college. Wish you good luck and God’s blessings …

Convener Message





“Vision is the art of seeing the invisible.” –Jonathan Swift





I am proud to be a part of a legacy of sustained academic excellence of over 55 years. Engaging students in research, innovation and entrepreneurship is the hall mark of our great institution. In following the foot step, Institution Innovation Council (IIC) encourages our crossians in research and creative endeavors that mould them as better thinkers, innovators and problem solvers, cultivating a depth of understanding needed to make a positive difference in the world. This helps them to sharpen their professional acumen.

We have several certificates courses, skill- based and value-added courses which a large number of students pursue simultaneously with their degree that allow them to become a successful entrepreneur.

Innovation in education is about more than just technology to empower students to become lifelong learners who are agents of change. It is the prime duty of educational institution to promote strong positive character traits and foster creativity and innovative thinking among students to teach not to be afraid of failure but strive hard to achieve success for excellence.

In all perspective our students are beyond our expectations.

I hope and pray that the students of our college will scale great heights and keep the crossians flag high.
