Ignatius of Loyola
St. Ignatius Loyola is the Founder of the Jesuit Order that runs St. Joseph’s College. Born in Spain, he gave up his career as a soldier under
the King, to become a soldier of Jesus Christ and worked to establish a world of humanity and justice.
Through his sharp analysis of society, he realized the need for higher education and considered higher education as an important device to bring about positive changes in society.
There are 20,000 Jesuits in the world today in different works with a heavy concentration in higher education. Keeping with the inspiration of the Founder, St. Joseph’s continues to provide an education of excellence with relevance for the transformation of society. Students enrolled here are expected to develop right attitudes towards life with appropriate skills and high competence.
