Corporate Foundation Relations

Xavier University has experienced transformative growth for many reasons, one being that businesses and government agencies have formed partnerships with the university and benefited from the mutual sharing of resources, while foundations and charitable organizations have invested in the value of Xavier and its exceptional students. 

Xavier University was founded on the strength of the support generously given by leaders in business, government, and community organizations throughout the Cincinnati area and state.  We proudly share the distinction that Xavier has been recognized as one of the nation's best colleges and universities for 16 consecutive years in the annual U.S. News & World Report rankings, including a number 4 ranking in the 2014 edition of Best Colleges in the Midwest.

Allow Xavier to be an access point to learn how you can partner with Xavier faculty and students who are at the leading edge of discovery and academic excellence.


One of the most powerful statements a corporation or foundation can make is its commitment to the community. 

At Xavier, we welcome inquiries from corporations and foundations about potential partnership arrangements, including:
