Message from the President

I am pleased to send my hearty congratulations to the Principal, Staff and students of St Xavier’s College, Burdwan, West Bengal, on entering the web-world by launching its own well designed website for the benefit of students and staff, alumni/ae and parents, well-wishers and beneficiaries.

St. Xavier’s College Burdwan has the distinction of being the 50th Jesuit college in the country, inaugurated in the Golden Jubilee year(1964 – 2014) of St Xavier’s School Burdwan. We, Calcutta Jesuit Province, are happy to see this long cherished dream come true for the benefit of students and youth of Burdwan city.

St Xavier’s College Burdwan, a Jesuit higher education Centre, endeavours to mould her students according to the Jesuit Educational Vision. That is basically two dimensional: firstly it aims at grooming the individual on a solid set of values, human and social, moral and spiritual (vision for one’s self) and secondly it aims at turning an inward looking individual into an outward looking citizen(vision for one’s society). Thus, a Jesuit institution succeeds in forming students as ‘men and women for others’ !

Once again I wish the college community God’s blessings in their mission to bring higher education to the youth of Burdwan city and beyond ….!

Yours truly

Fr. Jeyaraj Veluswamy, SJ
