The Xavier group of institutions has a legacy of more than 5 centuries. XISS, Ranchi is managed and governed by the Society of Jesus – more popularly known as the “Jesuits”. The Jesuit order was established some 500 years ago by St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus which came into existence in 1540 in Rome by a papal decree and since then they have been engaged in promoting quality education throughout the world.
XISS is rooted in the Jesuit tradition of education with Magis (a Latin term for “more” that was adopted by St Ignatius of Loyola), at the core of everything and the spirit of Magis inspires one to do things better continually for the greater good. Jesuit education is universally regarded as a model of excellence around the world and the goal of Jesuit education is to form leaders of competence, conscience and compassion who strive to build a better world.
The Jesuits run nearly 3900 Educational Institutions in 96 countries. These Jesuit Educational Institutions cater to the educational requirements of approximately 29.28 lakh students across the globe. Some of the best colleges in India like St Xavier’s Colleges in Mumbai and Kolkata, Loyola College Chennai, Loyola Institute of Business Administration (LIBA) Chennai, XLRI Jamshedpur, XIM Bhubaneswar are run by the Jesuits and belong to the same fraternity and share the same legacy of quality education.
