Center for Catholic Education

Michael Graham, S.J., Xavier's President, has committed the University to engaging students intellectually, morally, and spiritually - with rigor and compassion - toward lives of solidarity, service, and success. This is Xavier's Catholic and Jesuit identity and heritage. The Center for Catholic Education is one way that Xavier specifically promotes its identity and heritage by assisting Catholic schools in the transmission of the faith and the development of Catholic education.

Xavier University, in collaboration with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Catholic Schools Office, has already developed a most successful pilot program - the Initiative for Catholic Schools - whose professional development programs for Catholic teachers and whose partnerships with neighboring Catholic schools have helped to develop challenging mathematics, science, and technology curricula for participating schools. The Center's goals and its way of work hold promise for further accomplishments.
