Xavier Institute of Social Service was established in 1955 at St. Xavier’s College, Ranchi. From a humble beginning made with the objective of training young men & women in personnel Management, Industrial Relations, Rural Development & Social Welfare; over the last 50 years XISS has trodden a long path of glory and success.
In 1973, the Institute was registered as a separate educational society under the Societies Registration Act, 1860. From that point in history it has been recognized as one of the most outstanding management schools in India.
In 1978, it moved to its present site and over the years has grown in terms of both capacity as well as resources. Today it has developed its own distinct identity to become one of the premier management schools of India in the fields of Human Resource Management, Rural Management, Information Technology and lately even Finance and Marketing Management.
Since its inception, XISS has identified itself both as service institution and centre for academic excellence. As a service institution, XISS has a vision of just, humane, and equitable society where the underprivileged (poor and oppressed) assume their rightful place. XISS also visualizes itself as a centre of excellence in the country, imparting value driven management and development education, and catering to its diverse clientele and stakeholders.
