Principal’s Desk


Bishop Moore College had its genesis in the imagination of Bishop M.M. John, the then Bishop of the C.S.I. Madhya Kerala Diocese. When the Government of Kerala announced it’s decision to start new junior colleges in 1964, Bishop M. M. John saw it as an opportunity to fulfill the urgent need for a quality educational institution in this part of the world. Thus Bishop Moore College took concrete shape and he christened it in honour of the late Rt. Rev. Edward Alfred Livingstone Moore, the fourth Anglican Bishop of the Diocese of Travancore- Cochin. Rev. K.C. Mathew was appointed Principal. Instilled with a secular outlook, the founding fathers of the College had the singular aim of ameliorating the lot of the society, especially the most downtrodden. They aimed at shaping the citizens imbued with a patriotic outlook for the nation providing equal opportunities for all irrespective of religion, caste, class or gender. The College began at Kallumala, Mavelikara in the Alappuzha District of Kerala as a Junior College offering two years Pre-Degree Course in 1964 and has since then grown to an institution that offers several Under Graduate, Post Graduate Courses and Research facilities. The College has been able to do justice and attain the vision and mission of its founding fathers.
