The Collegiate Women’s Development Cell – “URJA”

  • A Historical Perspective:

From the very inception of the college, the management and the staff have been taking care of women staff and students in various ways. But it was in the 1990s that a special cell was set up under the guidance of Dr. (Fr.) Vincent Braganza, Dr. Suguna Ramanatha and Dr. Kashmira Pagdiwalla.

Over the years, the women’s cell came to be named ‘URJA’- Energy. Sr. Mary James and Prof. Mehra guided various activities for the students. In fact, St. Xavier’s college hosted the First National Women’s Conference initiated by the All India Catholic University Federation (AICUF) in the year 2005.

In October 2005, the then Vice chancellor of the Gujarat University, Prof. A.U.Patel, made it compulsory for every college affiliated with Gujarat University to have this cell in the college.
