Greetings From President Verret

Dear Members of the Xavier Community,

Xavier University of Louisiana has a long history of welcoming students to its family to advance the work of our foundress, Saint Katharine Drexel, and to advance the work of creating the more just and humane society that every person deserves.

The mission set forth nearly 100 years ago is as relevant today as ever. And, every person that comes through Xavier’s door is an essential part of that mission, for we are a community dedicated to academic excellence and much, much more.

At Xavier, we live the mission by offering co-curricular programming, serving the community around us, and continue fulfilling the legacy of generation after generation of Xavierites to be leading voices for change and justice.  The growth and development experienced by our students throughout their time at Xavier is the result of a communal support system designed to provide the resources they need to realize their personal goals, and where we are also enriched by the talents and gifts that they bring to Xavier.  

Our reach is global! Xavier alumni are serving the nation and the world in fields of medicine, law, pharmacy, social and physical sciences, public health, art, humanities, music, and education. Xavierites finish with a degree that is recognized nationally and is renowned for positively impacting the economic future of its’ recipient. Additionally, that degree signifies a readiness to contribute to the improvement and wellbeing of the communities that Xavierites go forth to serve and lead.

At Xavier, we are committed to the development of the whole student and the commitment of the Xavier family to be supportive of the development and success of every student.

I welcome you into Xavier’s collective and communal eXcellence.

Reynold Verret
