This is to confirm that I will be retiring as Principal at the end of May after almost 12 years at the helm. St. Xavier’s has a new Principal from the 1st of June 2015. This will be the first time a Jesuit will not be Principal. Based on the recommendation of the Selection Committee that met on 12th May 2015, the Jesuit Management is pleased to appoint Dr. Agnelo Menezes as Principal.
Dr. Agnelo Menezes has been a popular teacher, whose insistence on academic rigour and critical thinking, has led him to practice an innovative style of teaching and learning. He has been a promoter of research through the personal help he has offered faculty and by shepherding the new Xplore Journal. He has also helped mentor our new course, the Masters in Public Policy. He is the Warden of the College Hostel and Faculty Advisor In-Charge of the Social Involvement Programme. He is best suited to take the College forward in the years ahead.
