All students of St. Xavier's College are
expected to complete 30 hours of social service
(One Non-Academic Credit) either from college or
from outside. Those who wish to complete from
outside are requested to take prior permission
from their respective VPs. The college provides
a number of opportunities for social work
throughout the year. Students are encouraged to
use every opportunity within their first four
The dept. of social work & National Service Scheme (NSS) is situated on the ground floor of the main building, near the college canteen. The office timings are from 9.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Students who wish to become part of the dept. are supposed to collect the membership form from the office. After submitting the form, a student becomes eligible to participate in all the activities of the dept. Activities are held before and after class hours, during lunch break and on Sundays. Students are advised to read the dept. notice board regularly.
The dept. provides an opportunity to students to become part of the selected NSS Board which has a one year term from February to January every year. A Board member can accumulate all 6 non academic credits within one year provided she/he completes the full term successfully. Members for the board are selected on the basis of their commitment to social service, their genuine concern for the underprivileged, their regular participation and their readiness to accept any challenge that may come on the way.
A generous heart, a creative mind and a sensitive conscience is what we require from those who want to make a difference in the lives of others. The outcome is, while making a difference in other's lives, they make a difference in their own lives. Here's the chance to make that difference! Go for it! Feel free to walk in to the office for any query or clarification. You may contact the Director Ms. Cheryl Francis or the NSS Board Members to help you.
