Xavier Institute of Social Service (XISS) Ranchi has a legacy which is more than 500 years old. The Institute is managed and governed by Society of Jesus – more popularly known as “Jesuits”. They came into existence in 1540 in Rome by papal decree and since then have been engaged in promoting quality education through out the world. The best known colleges in India and abroad – St Xavier’s Colleges in Mumbai and Kolkata, XLRI Jamshedpur, XIM Bhubaneswar etc – share the same legacy of quality education
Our Mission and Philosophy
XISS Ranchi believes in the philosophical attitude “Professionals with a difference”. This may sound strange to many but we believe, and have believed since inception, that any activity including business exists in society. As such, any business should give back to the society what it takes from the society. In doing so, it should also ensure that the members of the society are not left behind. We intend to make professionals with a different attitude – of caring, sharing and giving to the society while being responsible citizens of the corporate world.
Because XISS has been producing well rounded professionals from its inception, placements have always been good at XISS. In the last year a total of 83 organisations visited the campus – out of which 35 were first time recruiters or visited the campus after a long time. A total of 259 job offers were made and accepted at an average salary of Rs. 5.33 lakhs per annum and the highest salary of Rs. 13.5 lakhs per annum.
Culture @ XISS
With the long legacy it is but imperative that XISS will have a strong cultural legacy. XISS believes in providing its students guidance to achieve creative freedom; rather than stifling them in a classroom environment. There is emphasis on “Social Service Fieldwork” where the students visit the down-trodden, the marginalised and the handicapped on a regular basis so that they develop empathy for the not so fortunate. Besides these “Rural Camps” expose the students to the harsh realities of the rural India – an India away from the clutches of Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram. The cultural and business fest – “Panache” is managed solely by the students under the guidance of administration. Besides these various departmental level activities keep the students engaged through out the year and gives them platforms to test their managerial and inter-personal skills.

Johar and Welcome once again
