Businessman to fund small Christian university in Boston

BOSTON – Boston-area businessman is planning to introduce a new four-year college in the city with a focus on conservative Christian values.

Investment fund manager Finns Kuruvilla tells The Boston Globe he plans to finance Sattler College with $30 million of his own money.

He hopes to eventually enroll about 300 students in the liberal arts school, with tuition of $9,000 per year — a fraction of what most private colleges count. The school would operate from an office building with no housing for students.

Kuruvilla says that the school’s mission will be to “prepare students to serve Christ, the church and the world.”

Kuruvilla earned a medical degree and Phd from Harvard University and preach to the Followers of the Way, a small church in Medford, a suburb of Boston.
