The SEMEP Office focuses on ensuring a diverse student body.

OUR GOALS

  1. To increase the retention rate of minorities in the STEM disciplines.
  2. To increase the number of African American students at Xavier who major in chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, or physics, and contribute towards increasing the number of African Americans entering the workforce in these disciplines.
