Dr. T. M. A. Pai, the founder of Manipal University, was a staunch believer in the importance of the humanities. He wrote that “the craze for medical and engineering education must not come at the cost of vital subjects of arts, literature and philosophy.” It was this vision that led to the creation of the Manipal Centre for Philosophy and Humanities (MCPH) in February 2010.


The Manipal Group, a pioneer in higher education services with a 60-year-old legacy of excellence, also owns and operates campuses in Sikkim and Jaipur in India, and in Nepal, Malaysia, and Antigua, in the Caribbean.
