St. Joseph's College basks in the rare glory of 175 years of educational excellence. The college has been striving its best to contribute to the nation and humanity through its committed service in education. We gratefully remember the selfless service rendered by our forefathers, faculty and non-teaching friends all through the years in forming and moulding the character of thousands of students. We carry on with a sense of satisfaction the baton of higher education they passed on to us. We continue to embellish the foundation of student's all round formation they had laid. As cura personalis (personal care) is the characteristic of Jesuit education, St. Joseph's has been concentrating on the integral formation of our students. Further, we constantly strive to achieve more in our mission of academic excellence.
Quality is the watchword in all spheres of life and it is more so in academics. A general understanding of quality assurance and enhancement is to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning, and research at the highest levels of excellence. For us, quality education is to provide the best to the least and prepare men and women for others who would act as catalysts in the process of social transformation.
The very act of assuring quality is to be embedded in the thought process because quality assurance is not a product but an ongoing process, a culture and a way of life wherein all segments of an institution are actively involved. Therefore, in our aim to provide quality education, we constantly enhance the quality of curriculum, teaching and learning pedagogy, evaluation, research, extension and governance in the true spirit of Magis, the lgnatian term meaning ?more? or ?greater? or ?doing more for others?. Of course, it is an unending process and a struggle. Keeping the spirit of Magis as driving force, St. Joseph?s creates space for the holistic formation of students and provides platform for all other stakeholders to blossom in their collaboration towards achieving academic excellence.
With Good Wishes and Prayers.
Rev. Dr. M. Arockiasamy Xavier, S.J.,
