Our Focus

As an academic institution, we aim to enrich our students with holistic education.

A Climate of Academic Freedom

Explore the limits of the mind and the imagination. Put forward new perspectives, express diverse opinions, and test their validity in discussion and debate.

A Caring and Conducive Environment

Our professors are genuinely interested in the academic and personal welfare of their students. There is close interaction between faculty and students. Intellectual abilities and moral values are continuously enhanced.

Enrichment through the Arts

Cultural interests are never neglected. Concerts and art exhibits by national artists are regularly held. Students are actively involved in creative projects.

A Spiritual Dimension to Learning

In the rush of day-today living, there is need to stop and rest, meditate on the values and norms that ennoble human existence.
