Xavier is like no other. We have our historical distinctions: Xavier is America's only historically Black, Catholic University, and it was founded by a Roman Catholic, U.S.-born Saint (Katharine Drexel). But Xavier is so much more than that.
At our core, we are a liberal arts-based college dedicated to preparing students to assume roles of leadership and service in society. Our achievements in the sciences and in pharmacy have earned a number of impressive national rankings that belie our relatively small enrollment. Our graduates excel, carrying the Xavier name into nearly every field of endeavor. By any measure, a Xavier degree represents one of the best values in education.
I invite you to explore this web site to learn more about Xavier, its students, its faculty and staff, and its programs of excellence. If you are looking for a first-class education and college experience, you can’t make a better choice; if you are looking to invest in the future leadership of America, you have found the right avenue. Xavier is like no other.
