The Xavier-Kuangchi Award recognizes alumni who have excelled in their respective fields, and moreover, have used their talents and resources in the service of society thus embodying to an outstanding degree the Xavier ideal of being “men for others”.
- To inspire the Community with shining examples of alumni who exemplify the Xavier ideal, witnessing through service and leadership.
- To focus public attention on the Xaverian as an active member of society and meaningful contributor to social development.
The exemplary alumnus has lived his life grounded on the three cornerstones of the Xavier ideal, manifested through the six C’s that describe the ideal Xaverian. He must manifest at least one of these three attributes to such an outstanding extent as to have made a meaningful impact on the community or society; and he should not be deficient in the other two attributes.
- “Men fully alive” — imbued with the truly human and universal virtues of love, mutual respect and harmony with all. He is ruled by a well-informed conscience. He strives to keep close contact with God and to seek God’s will in his life. (CONSCIENCE)
He appreciates his God-given gifts and, at the same time, he is conscious of his weaknesses, even as he tries to improve himself in every way that he can. (CHARACTER)
- “Endowed with a passion for justice” — has devoted his life to or is actively involved in humanitarian work or other selfless endeavors for the service of society.
He interacts with people from different levels of society and works with them in a peaceful and effective manner. (COMMUNITY)
He strives to be a neighbor, especially to those most needy and marginalized in imitation of Christ’s compassionate option for the poor. He tries to live a life of SIMPLICITY to be in solidarity with the poor. Most of all, he works for justice — i.e., towards eliminating unjust social structures. (COMPASSION)
- “and the skills for development” — has fully actualized his potentials and continues to excel in his field.
He has a track record of excellence in his chosen field of endeavor. (COMPETENCE)
He embraces his unique identity and has exploited the various cultural influences in his life to expand his horizons. (CULTURE)
