Holistic development of students, with international standards, edified with the sanctity of truth, equipped to serve has been the cornerstone of the ideas ingrained in the Vision and Mission of Bishop Moore College and also in its Educational Outcomes. The way the College employs unique strategies to meet this end is what contributes to the Institutional Distinctiveness

The first area of focus is the Core Competency Development of the students who are led to gain an in depth understanding of the core topics of study and an application-level clarity of the same. They are inspired to develop a multidisciplinary perspective and thus contribute to the knowledge capital of the country in particular and the world in general. They are led to acquire global competency in the area of study and creatively contribute to the ever-evolving chain of knowledge in the domain. The College has also evolved a practice  of promoting research and making aspiring students a part of the global research community. This is achieved through an ample number of gateways where students get to meet and interact with researchers from across the world - Prof. AjayanVinu (The University of Newcastle, Australia), Prof. P M Ajayan (Rice University, Texas), Dr. Lynette Keeney (Tyndall National Institute, University College Cork Ireland), Prof. Akeel Bilgrami (University of Columbia), Prof. Laura Mulvey (University of London), Prof. Simon During (University of Melbourne) are among the notable scientists who visited the campus and interacted with the students as part of various programmes during the last five years.  International and National Conferences, workshops, seminars and lectures are organized regularly to impart the latest developments in academic and research fields. Graduate and Post Graduate students are given opportunities to carry out Summer Research projects at reputed institutions like the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, Indian Science Academies, Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST) and the IITs.

The requirement for Professional Skill Development is a prerequisite for being prepared for the job market. The students are led to understand that learning is a lifelong, continuous and dynamic process that does not cease after graduating from College and has to continue at the professional and personal spaces as well. A heightened Emotional, Spiritual, Adversity and Creativity Quotient besides sharpening the Intelligence Quotient is cultivated. Programmes like MIST (Moore Initiative for Skill Training) and ASAP (Additional Skills Acquisition Programme) are implemented to  enhance communication, soft skills and other employability skills.The College promotes the use of technology and ensures that it is actually utilized by the students. Tech-savvy students are moulded through imparting technological skills via programmes like Association of Knowledge Partner Spoken Tutorial Programme, IIT Bombay as part of the National Mission on Education through ICT, of MoE, Govt. of India, training on Canva as a design tool under MIST (Moore Initiative for Skill Training), discussions on Google classrooms and presentation opportunities in various programmes.Students are oriented soon after their admission to a programme, on online learning platforms like Coursera and Swayam-NPTEL and are encouraged to take up such courses during their years of study in the College. The College is registered as an IRINS instance developed by the Information and Library Network (INFLIBNET) Centre. Web OPAC (Online Public Access Catalogue) facility is made available through KOHA Library Management Software to know the bibliographical details about the collection..

Environment Consciousness and Sustainability is the bedrock of sustainable development and therefore attempts are made to cultivate a zest for developing a lifelong engagement with sustainable social development, to develop into proactive citizens sensitive to environmental issuesand to strike a fine balance between socially relevant and environmentally sustainable goals. Students are inspired to take up leadership roles in projects like zero plastic campus and nature conservation activities of a similar kind through the Bhoomitrasenasena Scheme, Nature Club and the National Service Scheme, all of which is monitored by the IQAC of the College.

Ethical Consciousness is a key point in the College Educational Outcomes, which is aimed at the outcome of inculcating a value system among students. A heightened ethical consciousness is developed in students with a commitment towards communal harmony, steadfast to the cause of women and the marginalized. The services of the College Chaplain and the activities of the Value Education Cell cater to the same. Each day starts with a morning prayer and the sharing of a thought for the day by a student through the public address system, and  a chapel service is conducted on every Wednesday, during which the College Chaplain speaks on the values to be upheld in life. The mentoring system provides consistent psycho-social support for the mentees under a stipulated mentor. Each class has a warden/mentor (Teacher-in-Charge), who looks into the spiritual well-being of students of the class along with monitoring academic performance.

A sense of responsibility towards contributing to National development is inculcated in students through the National Cadet Corps units for men and women students, as well as through promotion of programmes upholding national integrity - Independence Day Celebrations, Republic Day Celebrations, Observations of Gandhi Jayanti, Constitution Day, organizing of programmes as part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, Ekta Pledge on RashtriyaEktaDiwas, National Integration Week Celebrations with a view to foster and reinforce the spirit of Communal Harmony and National Integration, the Democratic culture is also fostered with the democratic conduct of College Union elections.

A Quest for Excellence is thus ingrained in the students during their term of study, programmes like the STARS OF MOORE specifically catering to the same. They go out into the world as holistically developed individuals and contributing global citizens, who aspire to make the world a better place to live.

Students are empowered, made aware of their rights and supported through the effective functioning of bodies like Anti-Ragging Cell, Anti-Sexual Harassment Cell, Equal Opportunity Cell, SC/ST/OBC Cell, Women's Cell, Internal Complaints Committee and Counselling Cell.

Thus the most distinctive feature of the College is the way that it drafts the strategies to be adopted for the holistic development of the students, mindful of the fact that the draft has to be a dynamic one, keeping in mind the fast changing/evolving realities of the world and then ensuring that the draft finds an effective implementation in praxis.
