XLRI  Drops Village Exposure Programme
Every year the first-year students of XLRI Jamshedpur undergo compulsory Village Exposure Programme and the Outbound Adventure Programme. Both programs have been specially designed for students to create awareness about the realities of rural India and foster a sense of team spirit. This year due to the pandemic, it would not be possible to organize these programs.

Welcoming the new students, Fr. Paul. Fernandes S.J., Director, XLRI-Xavier School of Management, Jamshedpur,  emphasized the four essential hallmarks of Jesuit education. Elaborating on the four themes, he said, “XLRI’s successful growth over seven decades has been guided by these four important hallmarks of Jesuit education, and we will continue to place a strong emphasis on them. The first aspect being ‘Excellence’ - to strive continuously for the best, without getting easily satisfied and without becoming complacent with our achievements; the second aspect being ‘Integrity coupled with Ethics’ - which describes the ethos of XLRI. One cannot achieve excellence, long-term success without Integrity & Ethics both go hand in hand; the third aspect relates to ‘Whole person growth across quotients’ – Growth of an individual across intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual levels; and the fourth hallmark being ‘Social Consciousness’-to be sensitive to the needs of the less privileged around us.”

Adding further Fr. Paul said, “Our new campus in the Delhi-NCR area, from its very inception, was conceived as ‘an integral part’ of XLRI Jamshedpur. Our two campuses remain part of the same registered society, the same governing board, and have the same treasurer for all the campuses. Our institutional strategy visualizes both Jamshedpur and Delhi campuses as two entities of the same XLRI institutional brand. The students of both the campuses belong to the one and only XLRI.”
