At the hearing, President Verret will discuss how federal relief funds have supported Xavier students as they continue to pursue their education and the mission of Xavier, even in a global pandemic, and the importance of continued funding from the federal government for HBCUs as a vital part of the academic landscape in the United States. Xavier's status as one of the best value schools in the nation for a quality education is a testament as to why HBCUs should continually be invested in and supported by the federal government.
