During the Crusades, Saint Francis of Assisi risked his life by walking across enemy lines to meet the Sultan of Egypt, the Muslim ruler Al-Malik al-Kamil. This remarkable encounter, and the commitment to peace of the two men behind it, sucked the venom out of the Crusades and changed the relationship between Muslims and Christians for the better. 

Join us for the showing of this film, Sunday, May 7, 20th Century Theater, Madison Road, to learn about the remarkable spiritual exchange between the Sultan and the Saint, and the great risks they took for peace.

Remarks by Father Michael Graham, SJ, President, Xavier University, and Michael Wolfe, Executive Producer.

The Bias Advisory and Response Team (BART) would like to inform the Xavier community about the changes that have been made to the website, and response communication protocol. Please visit the website to explore definitions, the effects of bias, a list of team members, reporting methods, response protocol and the bias incidents that have been reported in the month of April. Many of the changes were a result of the feedback the team received after the fall 2016 racial bias incidents, especially around transparency.

BART has decided to try a monthly communication approach to informing the community about bias incidents (see Updates tab) that don't rise to the level of needing to send out an immediate campus-wide email. We will solicit feedback mid-Fall 2017 semester to inform the impact of the changes made. More information on the rationale can be found on the website. If anyone would like to have a BART sticker to post on their door or a button to wear promoting BART please stop by the Center for Diversity and Inclusion.

Have extra dining dollars?

Put them to good use during finals week.

From May 1st through 5th, students can purchase non-perishable food items and some health & welness items at the bookstore in GSC. There will be bins marked for donation near the entrance of the store. Leave your puchased items there. All collected items will be used to supplement a food pantry for Xavier students. The food will be made available starting this summer for students living on campus who may need it. It is the hope that this will turn into a year round pantry for students facing food insecurity.

Questions?

Contact Danica Lombardi at lombardid@xavier.edu.

Due to lack of study space on campus, it is felt by some members of the Xavier Community that the students would greatly benefit from being able to access Alter Hall 24/7. Currently, No one can swipe into Alter after 10 PM, however, if you are in Alter prior to 10, you are permitted to stay. Help us in our quest to make it easier for students to achieve more by providing a large study and work space! Sign our Free petition at the link below!!
