The Karunya University has been established by the Almighty God through a vision given to my father late Bro.D.G.S. Dhinakaran and through a direction given to me on 2nd & 6th May 2008 that it is to be "a University with a social concern to bringforth solutions to the problems of humanity". The Lord says in John 15:16, "You have not chosen Me but I have chosen you to go and bear fruits and that your fruit should remain". Always remember that you have been chosen by God and placed by God in Karunya.
As the above verse continues, thus, "Whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you", please pray daily for God to reveal to you each day as to what you have to accomplish that day. As you receive God's guidance He will empower you with wisdom, favour in the eyes of men as well as God,
Paul Dhinakaran, Chancellor awarding a
what He has revealed to you each day, specially at the time of the
prayer in the morning assembly. Through that you will gain stature
amongst your teachers and fellow students, the society and the nation.
At Karunya we give equal importance to academic excellence, spiritual empowerment and value inculcation to form every student into an Ambassador to become a leader in the global society, in terms of working towards solving the human problems. To this end you will be provided with application oriented, fundamentally strong education in each area of your study by each faculty member. Faculty will strive to help every student to be educated and to be motivated to think beyond and produce solutions to various problems of humanity in your area of study, and when you go out you would be confident to be social benefactors.
Secondly we believe that every student should acquire values to stand up for what is right and to live a disciplined life to become a leader in society and to lead the nation in righteousness. "Righteousness exalts a nation" (Proverbs 14:34). We believe in enabling each student to value other students from different parts of the nation and the world and to appreciate the global family values. To this end the campus life is organised.
Thirdly Karunya University believes in empowering students with strong spiritual values and faith in God through prayer to enable them to stand strong in the midst of all tribulations and trials in life and overcome them and to rise up to great heights. To this end the faculty members are expected to encourage the students in times of their weaknesses through their counsel and prayers as well as share a word of testimony from their life's experiences with regard to how God had led them in the past in answer to prayers. We desire that student teams go out and minister to the hurt and the needy in society as well as through various extension programmes, spiritual outreaches and counseling programmes.
Thus as a student, may we encourage you that as God's child one has to dedicate himself / herself fully to this work of God for one to receive God's blessings in abundance in one's family, profession and personal life. According to the Scripture may you receive hundred fold blessings in this world along with the eternal life for your soul, as you are fully committed to this plan of the Lord.
May I share with you God's promise found in the Scriptures "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you" ,here at Karunya. Please remember that I am praying for you each day that God will fulfill His promise and be with you and make you achieve great things.

God" - William Carey
