The Church in India has invested her best talents and resources in higher education to continue the mission of Jesus Christ who commanded to “Go and Teach all nations” (Mt.28,20). In our educational ministry, both as individual institutions and as members of a corporate body such as Xavier Board, we try to build inclusive human communities for the re-generation of India and its people, through our share in nation building and national resource development. All our educational institutions and the committed personnel are the Church’s contribution to national development..
The Xavier Board wishes to foster institutions of excellence in academic sphere, acceptance of value systems, access to the poor and the arginalized, autonomy in administration and management, possibly leading to autonomous institutions and Universities.
The member institutions will initiate ways and means such as community contribution, services of Parent Teacher and Alumni associations, endowments, sponsorships, scholarships, exchange and twinning programmes and similar non commercial income generating schemes for finding its own financialresources for better infra structural and educational needs. These institutions foster a sense of ownership in community through forms of participatory administration, formation of advisory bodies and accountability structures. Our facilities will be shared for community services, ongoing education, non-formal learning, short term / diploma courses and the like, so that infrastructural wastage is limited to the minimum.
Sharing the same vision enables the member institutions to co-operate effectively among themselves through exchange programmes, networking, and sharing of personnel and material resources.
Facing the realities of Indian context, our educational institutions aim at training leaders who are intellectually competent, spiritually mature, morally upright, psychologically integrated, physically healthy, socially acceptable and God-loving, who will champion the cause of justice, love, truth and peace and who are ever open to further growth. In our institutons, we cherish to have a community of teachers who are committed to their divine vocation, professionally competent, morally upright, just and humane in dealings, co-operative and who help their students to grow in all positive aspects.
We aspire to create a just and humane society in India, where the dignity of human person is respected, where the poor and marginalized are specially taken care of, where our cutural heritage of ahimsa, religious harmony and national integration are upheld, and where corruption and social evils are challenged. We aim to reach out to the familites of our present and former students, to assist them in their needs, to share their joys and sorrows and to help them experience love and freedom, so that the students realize that our educational institution is an extension of their homes.
The Xavier Board member institutions are open to all, irrespective of their caste or creed; they are accepted and cherished as they are and helped to grow in their cultural, social and religious traditions.
