She expressed her firm belief that like Harvard and Oxford, St. Xavier's University Kolkata will soon be of global significance, thriving on the principles of faith and wisdom.

The Chancellor, Father Jeyaraj Veluswamy called the inauguration a function of divine sanction as he christened the audience with the realisation of the Ignatian charism and reminded all about the precious responsibility of service to a greater number of students for the greater glory of God. Codes of custom and cultural practices are propagated by the educations of St. Xavier's and Father Chancellor thanked all the men and women who have contributed to the making of this historical moment of the birth of St. Xavier's University Kolkata.

Why Xavier's

St. Xavier's College is a 157 years old institution with rich heritage and long tradition.

As a Jesuit Higher Educational Institution, it aims to form men and women for others, with fundamental human and spiritual values.

The tiny seed has grown into a mighty tree from 83 students in 1860 to 7,853 students in January 2016.

The College functions in three shifts : morning, day and evening, offering UG and PG courses in Humanities, Science, Education, Commerce and Business Administration.

The College also offers various career oriented certificate and diploma courses to college students as well as others.

The College motto "Nihil Ultra" means Nothing Beyond, a motto, significant and suggestive of a noble ideal, of an unconquerable hope, that should urge the Xavierian always to aim high.

The spirit of Xavier's is Majis greater service to greater number of people for the greater glory of God (AMDG)..
