The insights of great Educationists, Philosophers, Psychologists, Sociologists, Economists,
Political leaders, Scientists, Lawyers, Spiritual leaders etc on education have formed the
educational policies to face the challenges of technology propelled 21 st century society.
Education is not for life but life itself (John Dewey). Educational institutors have a crucial role to
equip their pupils to face the challenges in their lives. Every moment offers an opportunity to
develop skills and be efficient and competent to lead fully human lives. The commemoration of
150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi helps us to relive his ideals to make the society
productive, and peaceful.
Among all the great personalities who contributed theories and practices in the field of
education, a 16 th century soldier turned saint in the Roman Catholic Church ST IGNATIUS OF
LOYOLA is the model and patron of this college. His educational philosophy is evolved from
his deep spiritual experiences of Jesus Christ through whom God revealed Himself to humanity.
The followers of St. Ignatius , especially the members of his order, the Jesuits have culled out the
educational ideals of St Ignatius from his writings and made a model for teaching-learning,
known as INTEGRAL PEDEGOGICAL PARADIGM (IPP) which has five components (1)
Context, (2) Experience, (3) Reflection, (4)Action and , (5) Evaluation. Education here is based
The management, with the help of qualified and competent teaching faculty and supporting staff,
takes all efforts to put into practice IPP and train students to acquire adequate skills through
formation of intellectual capacity, training in desirable social and humane values. All these lead
to an integrated life of the students of this college.
On behalf of the Management, I invite qualified persons to be teaching faculty and college and
university students to be part of student fraternity LOYOLA FAMILY. Welcome and blessings
Fr Dr Francis A.V, SJ
