Xavier’s Social Commitments

Institutional Social Responsibility Cell (ISRC)

Knowledge is power and has been the significant criteria in the growth and development of the society. Learning and acquiring knowledge is a continuous process and this is possible with an active collaboration between people, educational institutions and industry. Social responsibility, sensitization of students and staff is the key agenda behind all of our social initiatives and we are committed to being a socially responsible educational institute. At every level we need to understand and analyse what we learn and its relevance to our future. In our college we have included this process through various activities and channels and attained positive results.

The Institutional Social Responsibility Cell (ISRC) is one of the important initiatives of St. Xavier’s College, Jaipur for students under the guidance of the management and faculty of our college. Through ISRC we wish to take forward the concept of enhanced learning to various departments of our college. We as an institution believe that our role involves something more than that of simply imparting knowledge and skills to the students. As an active agent of social change, we aim to undertake the challenge of creating socially responsible global citizens. Students enter college at a crucial juncture of their life wherein they embark upon a journey of self-discovery and lifelong goal setting and this cell ensures a holistic development of a student through community service. The endeavour of ISRC would be to make a difference which can in future bring about a greater change in the society.

The ISRC will provide a platform for our students to explore and pursue their passion through which students can make a positive impact on the society that we live in. The focus will be to enable the students to understand that the contribution of the community is far greater in their lives than their own contribution to the community. In the process, students have the opportunity to discover their individuality i.e. create their own identity, yet remain humble. The students are provided to have first-hand experience of the society and its problems. They are sensitized towards these problems so that they will become responsible citizens and serve the society. The emotional, intellectual and social faculties of the learners are developed through these extension activities.
