It was the far sighted vision of the 83 year old Very Rev. Monsignor Denis Jerome D’Souza which was instrumental in providing a college to the rural students of Kallianpur. “The boys and girls who work in the field should be able to come to the college straight from the field” this was the mission of Mnsj. D. J. D’Souza the founder of the college.
This vision was realised in 1967 with the support of the parishioners of Milagres Church. Late Dr. P. G. Bhat, a great historian was the founder Principal of this institution. It was founded by the Catholic Board of Education of the Diocese of Mangalore with a view to provide collegiate education in this part of Udupi.
Now it is managed by Catholic Educational Society of Udupi (CESU), a managing committee with the bishop of Udupi diocese as the President.
