Welcome to Xavier University. We are a comprehensive university offering a wide range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs. As a Jesuit Catholic university rooted in the liberal arts tradition, our mission is to educate each student intellectually, morally and spiritually. We create learning opportunities through rigorous academic and professional programs integrated with co-curricular engagement.
We provide many opportunities for academic and community service learning. Our outreach programs enhance and complete the educational enterprise through an inclusive environment of open and free inquiry, used to prepare students for a world that is diverse, complex and increasingly interdependent. Driven by our commitment to the common good and to the education of the whole person, the Xavier community challenges and supports students as they cultivate lives of reflection, compassion and informed action.
At Xavier, students develop skills to become successful and achieve their goals. Students learn and alumni come to live the value of their education, which is ultimately service to those around them, especially to the poor. We are proud to serve as an educational and cultural resource for Cincinnati, our surrounding communities and, indeed, for the entire world into which our students will go and find their futures. Learn more about Xavier. I am confident you will like what you find.
