The Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary’s Congregation was founded in the year 1844 in Pondicherry. The very inception of this congregation was aimed at liberating the illiterate womenfolk from various types of atrocities and social injustices. The sisters of this congregation are deeply committed to the motto of the congregation. “Sanctification of sisters for the Sanctification of Women”. Though the congregation runs a large number of educational institutions, health and social work organizations in various parts of India and abroad, education has been their strongest weapon to achieve the above said motto. The sisters have rendered their great service for over a century to the oppressed and the marginalized.

In the field of education the congregation has got Higher Secondary Schools, High Schools, the congregation has been running Technical Training Institution, Teacher Training Institutions, Community Colleges, Engineering Colleges and Arts and Science Colleges. The Prime objective of starting this institution is to provide opportunities for women towards their social and economic self-reliance and thereby improving their status in the society.

At the time when the congregation was seriously contemplating on opening up new avenues for higher education of women, the need to start a college of education was strongly felt to impart quality education exclusively for the women who hail from rural areas and lower income group. It was mainly intended to cater to the need of the prospective teachers of the High and Higher Secondary Schools.

As a result of those serious thoughts and desire, the Immaculate College of Education for Women came into existence on 01/10/1999. It was indeed yet another milestone in the history of Immaculate Congregation, which was making desirable changes at the structural levels, in educational systems. Now this college is showing steady progress in imparting teacher education to the deserving women both qualitatively and quantitatively.
