A Research Committee monitors and addresses the issues of research. The College publishes a multi- disciplinary Research Journal—Pauline Journal of Research and Studies. The “Research Forum” functions as a platform for creative discussions and exchange of ideas among researchers. Sixteen members of the faculty have PhDs and twenty are involved in research work leading to Ph.D. Eight minor research projects have been completed and twelve are ongoing. Fifty eight programmes with focus on capacity building in research were organized. Two teachers have availed themselves of the Faculty Improvement Programme of the UGC during the last four years. An interdisciplinary Major Research Project has been sanctioned. An application for another Major Research Project is under consideration of DST. Seventy six articles in journals, five books, and eight chapters in edited books are the major research output of the faculty. Faculty awards and recognition in the area of research include a FLAIR (Fostering Linkages in Academic Innovations in Research) International Internship, and a U. S. State Department Fulbright Scholarship.
