The Center for Equity, Justice, and the Human Spirit


The Center for Equity, Justice and the Human Spirit at Xavier University of Louisiana was founded in August 2018 as a vital space for scholarly research and community-driven systems change. The first of its kind at an HBCU, the Center develops programming to shift oppressive policies and practices in the fields of education, criminal justice, and environmental sustainability. The Center honors the faith and principles of Xavier’s foundress, St. Katharine Drexel, to utilize the university as a place to uplift the human spirit and advance the creation of a more just and equitable society through shared learning and education.
