St. Vincent De Paul (1581-1660) was the Sixteenth century French saint who pioneered the development of massive charitable organizations. He became the inspiring presence of his times which was marred by constant wars and discrimination against the poor. He promoted the Catholic essence of charity among all sections of people and organized charitable activities in the most efficient manner in order to reach the most neglected sections of the society. Thus, he awakened the conscience of humanity and left indelible marks of human values on history of the 17th century. It is he who, for the first time, encouraged women to actively participate in the process of social action. Pope John Paul II called him “a man of action and prayer; a man of persuasion and imagination; a man of leadership and humble service; a man of yesterday and today”. The institute derives its title and inspiration from St. Vincent de Paul, the patron saint of the Vincentian Congregation, a Christian religious community which manages the institute. Inspired by the example of St. Vincent de Paul, the members of the Congregation undertake various educational/charitable/spiritual activities for the upliftment of the society and especially that of the marginalized sections. Vincentian Congregation is the parent organization which runs De Paul Education Trust which manages DiST and its sister concerns such as De Paul English Medium School, De Paul Computer Academy etc.
DIST is managed by De Paul Educational Trust which is the educational arm of VINCENTIAN CONGREGATION, a Catholic religious community.

Our Educational Methodology
The administrative system of DiST envisions internal autonomy and interdepartmental collaboration as its key elements. This approach helps us to be as close as possible to where it matters: the individual student and the level of motivation he/she brings to his/her learning process. As a result, DiST could develop a highly effective mentoring system where individual initiative and creativity are fostered and skills in team work are enhanced in the best possible manner. With the help of this supportive system, students, from the very beginning of their academics, are capable of appreciating the educational method that we employ at DiST: the core of which consists in continuous interaction, quality exposure to real life issues and challenges and intensive team work – all with the aid of modern technology and experienced faculty.
