The Salesians of Don Bosco started their mission in Chitradurga on 12th June 1995. Considering the need of the place and time along with socially beneficial activities and empowerment of the villages the Salesians focused on educating the children as a vehicle of social transformation.It was felt that a change can be brought around Don Bosco and adjoining area only through education and social service. CHITRA (arm of DBC) penetrated into the life and people through various social services which changed in the set up of the villages around DBC. To change the mindset of people, education plays very important role.
Therefore don Bosco chitradurga ventured into the field of education in the name of Don Bosco Colleges. Today children are educated from LKG to SSLC/ICSE. Later to give a holistic education for an individual it was felt that a PUC college was needed. Therefore in 2007 PUC College became a reality. eight batches of students have gone out from the portals of Don Bosco. The motto of DB PU College is “Virtue and Excellence".
