Council for International Programmes (CIP)

It enables an osmotic educational link between St. Xavier’s College and Universities across continents. It has incessantly bolstered the visibility of St Xavier’s College on the global map. While CIP looks forward to fostering new alignments with the leading universities across the globe, it harks back to the rich legacy of globalization that has been an inherent facet of Jesuit education at St. Xavier’s College. CIP facilitates both short-term and long-term programmes for its in-house and foreign students. Dr. Rashmi George is the Director of this programme.
