Mangalore Jesuit Educational Society (MJES) which runs St Aloysius College aims at the integral formation of students and tries to mould them into “men and women for and with others” who in turn will be the agents of change in forging a more just, humane, eco-friendly and gender sensitive society. Therefore, the institution intends to foster:
A campus culture that is receptive to cross cultural understanding, engaging the staff and students in creative and innovative nation building, and evolving into a truly multidisciplinary university.
A teaching learning atmosphere tempered by a critical awareness demonstrating a proactive commitment to the cause of justice and responsible action. Inculcating scientific temper and free thinking among students will be the hallmark of the proposed new university.
A holistic and comprehensive curriculum driven by a passion to motivate and challenge students, to nurture cooperative leadership and to recognize and reward their innovative research findings, while at the same time, encouraging them to live the values of honesty, integrity, personal responsibility, accountability, tolerance, respect, empathy and compassion.
A desire in all the stakeholders towards creating an “Aloysian” brand of education that translates its commitment to values such as self-esteem, justice, critical thinking, freedom of thought and expression, freedom from discrimination, benevolent exercise of power, and above all a hope in the essential goodness of people.
Foundation courses on Indian Constitution, Human Rights, Gender Equity, Environmental Science and Value Education as non-negotiable components of curriculum in the first four semesters.
Students should always aspire to do more than just the prescribed frame of syllabi and explore other dimensions of their personalities and skill sets.
The vision and mission of “creating men and women for and with others” is intended to instil a deep critical self and social awareness. All students become sensitized to the condition of the marginalized sections of society and are motivated to serve them. In sum, the institution has made consistent efforts to keep itself abreast of the contemporary context constantly qualifying its vision and mission to respond to the needs and challenges of the times. At the centre of all the endeavours are the students whose integral development into persons who are academically accomplished, emotionally balanced, morally upright, socially responsible, ecologically sensitive and professionally committed provides meaning and justification for the existence and continuation of St Aloysius College.
