The Institution of Dharmaram Vidya Kshetram (DVK):
Dharmaram Vidya Kshetram (DVK) is a Pontifical Athenaeum for higher learning and formation, established by the Congregation for Catholic Education, Vatican, as an independent institute, empowered to grant degrees, including Licentiate and Doctorate in Philosophy and Theology, Licentiate in Oriental Canon Law and Licentiate and Master's in Formative Spirituality and Counselling. The stages of the growth of Dharmaram College very clearly reveal that attention was paid simultaneously to its material, spiritual, and academic aspects. Already in 1965 the College was affiliated to the Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome, and 11 years later in 1976, the Congregation for Catholic Education by its Decree, "Nobilissimae Indiarum Gentes," erected in it a Faculty of Theology as an independent Institute with rights to confer the Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Theology and the Bachelor's degree in Philosophy. Early in 1971, the College had instituted a Centre for the Study of World Religions (CSWR) in order to implement and establish the directives of Vatican II concerning inter-religious dialogue in the context of India's religious pluralism. In furtherance of this objective, the same Centre, in 1975, started the publication of Journal of Dharma (Dharmaram Journal of Religions and Philosophies), in order to foster and enhance researches in the fields of dialogue and ecumenism and to contribute to the formulation and development of an indigenous Christian philosophy and theology. In recognition of the merits and the significant progress Dharmaram Pontifical Institute made in seven years, the same Congregation by its decree "Antiquissima Indorum Philosophica," on 8 December 1983 constituted also a Faculty of Philosophy, empowering it to award postgraduate and doctoral degrees in Philosophy.
