Stella Maris College, Chennai was established in 1947, is a Catholic minority institution of higher education for women. Beginning in a small one-storey building in Santhome, Mylapore with 32 students, the college moved to its present campus in 1960. Today the college has an enrollment of 3,800 students from diverse backgrounds, communities and nations. The college is committed in serving the economically and socially marginalized sections of society and provides university education in a Christian atmosphere for students, especially those belonging to the Catholic community.
The college is an autonomous institution and is affiliated to the University of Madras. It is run by the society of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary, a religious congregation founded by blessed Mary of the Passion (Helene de Chappotin) in Ootacamund, Tamil Nadu in 1877. Guided by her charism, the initiatives of the college arise from a sound philosophy of life based on faith in God and the contemporary reality of a pluralistic Indian society that is challenged by global ideologies and cultures.
