The Jaipur Xavier Educational Association (JXEA) was established in 1950, as a trust managed by the Jesuits. In 2006 the Xavier Vocational Institute (XVI) was started in Jaipur to give vocational training to the economically poorer sections of society.
In 2010 the JXEA, in collaboration with the Xavier Alumni and the well-wishers of Jaipur, took the lead in the "higher education programme" by starting St. Xavier's College, Jaipur. It is affiliated to the University of Rajasthan. It is established and maintained by the members of the Delhi province of the Society of Jesus.
St. Xavier's College, Jaipur has been making rapid strides in its pursuit of excellence at par with other Jesuit institutions of higher learning, since its inception. The skills and knowledge that is needed in the 21st century in the global context are being imparted with broad-based academic curriculum.
India has the unique distinction of being not only one of the fastest growing economies but also demographically, one of the youngest countries of the world. The estimates of the recent census project draw the picture that India shall be the most populous country with 64% of its population in the age of 15-59 years by 2025.
The present conference aims to find out solutions to augment India’s national efforts to address the needs of young people through holistic and multi-sectoral approaches. This way India will be able to navigate through the thin ice that it currently stands on and meet the challenge of converting this population into a demographic dividend which will have positive reverberations for the future growth of the nation and eventually rise as a true global power.
This conference offers a unique opportunity to further shape a holistic vision and to promote the discussion on holistic growth. It will cover various dimensions like technology, management practices, commerce, theory and practice and ultimately economic growth and development of the country.
