Welcome to St. Xaviers Institute of Education. This is our official website.

Greetings to all !

May God be glorified and peace and harmony prevail among us.

Let me take this opportunity to express my gratitude and indebtedness to each and everyone who has in one way or other contributed to the growth of St.Xavier’s Institute of Education as one of the premier institutes of teacher education programmes in the country . The institute needs no introduction to anyone who is aware of the college which has been consistently showing Potential for Excellence, It lays a lot of emphasis on the curricular and co-curricular development and value based enhancement of potential of its students. St. Xavier‘s Institute of Education is a Jesuit institution established and administered by the Jesuit Mumbai Province of the Society of Jesus. The College is under the religious jurisdiction of the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Mumbai. As a Jesuit institution it offers a rich, inclusive and holistic approach to teacher education. We offer this to all those who come, christians and others, those of all faiths and none. “Joyous, Creative Teacher Education" is our mission. " To Provide Quality Education for Empowerment and Enlightenment, To create a just and humane society and Strive to build a world of Faith, Freedom and Fellowship for God's Greater Glory "is our mission.

The theme for the academic year is Reflective Action towards Harmony. Harmony is about learning different cultures, embracing new cultures and making sure that everybody is included in society. Differences are what make us unique and special. Being a Principal, I have a strong belief to promote harmony, dedication and a win-win scenario for everyone in the college. Harmony can be interpreted as ‘team cohesion’. As long as we have a dedicated team aiming for the same goals, anything can be achieved.Great teachers are the most important ingredient to the success of an educational institution. I believe that when we have great teachers in our classrooms, then we do not have to worry about the students. I always set students’ benefit to be the first priority. The college will focus on promoting a high level of learning culture. I also believe on life-long learning. With a great team of teaching staff and excellent students, I expect a continuous and sustainable advancement in learning and teaching. But students, you’ve got to do your part too. I expect you to be serious in your studies, responsible, spread peace and harmony amongst you and in the society. I expect you to put your best effort into everything you do. I expect great things from each of you. So don’t let us down – don’t let your family or your country or yourself down. Make us all proud. I know you can do it.

As the great Jesuit Paleontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin wrote: "God is not remote from us. He is at the point of my pen, my pick, my paintbrush, my needle — and my heart and my thoughts." Let Him lead us in every responsibility we take up.Let us spread God’s presence in our everyday lives.

From now on, the spirit of St.Xavier’s is deeply rooted in my mind – “Once in Xavier’s, be with Xavier’s forever.”

Sincerely yours,

Dr. Sosamma Samuel
