a close attention to the inter-relationship between culture, religion, science, technology, education, professional ethics and integrity of life.
a spirit of family characterized by the presence of teachers and administrators among and for the students
an academic and educative style of relationship founded on reason, religion and kindness.
a special attention to the formation of educators, the field of technology and work, and the world of communications.
a sustained effort to promote in society formative programmes that impact educative processes as well as on strategies and policies for youth.
a continuous attempt, through research and services, to understand better the situation of the youth in India, especially the most disadvantaged, and to frame and implement strategies to bring about their positive transformation.
provision of a basket of finishing school skills and quality placements for each and every student
continuous and on-going evaluation of every process in the system
a proactive alumni association.


The spirit of the university has been encapsulated in its emblem which has four distinct elements:

‘The Cross” signifying its underlying Christian inspiration;
‘The Profile of St. John  Bosco’ to denote its distinctive educational philosophy; 
‘The rays of the Rising Sun’  standing for its dynamism and commitment to society;

The motto, ‘Carpe Diem’ which translates as ‘Seize the Day’ challenging every Bosconian to grasp the opportunities presented by each new day and attain ‘life in its fullness.’
