History[edit]

Inception

In 1880, St Aloysius College was founded as an all-male school through the efforts of the Roman Catholic Community of Mangaluru, who sent requisitions to Rome asking for the transfer of the Vicarate of Mangalore (then under Carmelites) to the Jesuits. Mangaloreans, who had visited Jesuit educational institutions in Mumbai (then Bombay), Tiruchirapalli (then Trichinopoly) and Kolkata (then Calcutta), envisioned a "College in the City of Mangalore" that would raise the standards of education and nurture a new generation of young leaders to serve both the civic and spiritual needs of the city.

Pope Leo XIII, by the Brief of 27 September 1878, handed over the Mangalore Mission to the Italian Jesuits of Naples, who played an important role in education, health and social welfare of the community. On 31 December 1878, nine Jesuits landed in the old port of Mangalore to form the Jesuit Mission in Mangalore. They were:

The first building inaugurated in 1880 - currently the St Aloysius High School and Jesuit Residence
  • Mgr. Nicholus Pagani (Italian)
  • Fr Angelo Maffei (Italian)
  • Fr Angelo Mutti (Italian)
  • Fr Quintinus Sani SJ (Italian)
  • Fr Augustus Muller SJ (German)
  • Fr Otto Ehrle SJ (German)
  • Fr Urban Stein SJ (German)
  • Br Mathew Meneghetti (Italian) and
  • Br Francis Zamboni SJ (Italian).

On 12 January 1880, St Aloysius College opened its doors in Kodialbail with only one building, a bungalow donated by Mrs Mary Magdalene Coelho, under inaugural superior Fr Joseph Antony Willy SJ (1880–1885) with 150 students. In 1882, it was affiliated to Madras University as a Secondary Grade College, in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Ancient History and Logic.

Move to Main Building

The official inauguration of the college took place in 1885, under the rectorship of Fr Willy and the shift to main building took place on 16 January 1885 with 326 students. With the departure of Fr Willy in the same year, Fr Joseph Hoene was appointed Principal and Fr Abundius Cavadini as the Rector of the college with 7 Jesuit staff and 6 lay staff members. In 1887, the college was raised to First Grade with classes from the first form to Senior First in Arts (F.A.)

Shift from Madras University

Independent India saw the classification of regions according to linguistic basis turning all colleges in Dakshina Kannada district to sever ties with Madras University and join one of the existing universities in the newly formed state of Mysore (later Karnataka). In 1958, St Aloysius College shifted affiliations to Karnataka University and then to Mysore University in quick succession. In 1980, St Aloysius College came under the purview of Mangalore University, under which it has been continuing its existence henceforth.

Co-educational shift

In 1986, after over 106 years of all-male education system, St Aloysius College added its first batch of lady students with about 65 ladies admitted for PUC and Degree courses under Fr Leo D'Souza, who was the principal between 1980-1990. In 1992, there were 511 lady students out of a total strength of 2597.

Recent history

In 1999, the college launched its first full-fledged master’s program – Master of Computer Application (MCA) followed by Master of Business Administration (MBA) in 2004. This lead to the inauguration of a new campus on the outskirts of Mangaluru known as Aloysius Institute of Management and Information Technology (AIMIT) in 2008.

In 2007, the college was granted autonomous status and has been conducting its day-to-day activities under the autonomous system ever since.
