St. Xavier's College is named after St. Francis Xavier, a Jesuit saint of the 16th century who traveled to India. The College was founded by the Society of Jesus, a Christian religious group started by St. Ignatius of Loyola in 1540. Since its inception, the Jesuits have toiled in the field of education, among other things, and were even called 'the school-masters of Europe' at one time. [1]

St. Xavier's College is a Catholic institution, which strives to form men and women, especially Christians, to build a more just and humane world. The intellectual endeavour it strives for focuses on critical and creative thinking with the aim of social transformation. This endeavour is inspired by the values of the Gospels - from the New Testament of the Christian scriptures - while it appreciates and promotes all the other religions, especially the rich religious heritage of India. [1]

The Society of Jesus manages the college through a Governing Body, whose chairman is the Provincial of the Bombay Province of the Society. The vice-chairman of the Governing Body serves as the Rector of the college, while its Secretary and Chief Executive is the Principal. Currently Fr. Paul Vaz SJ is the rector of the college, and Fr. Frazer Mascarenhas SJ is the Principal. [1]
