Are you looking for a not-so-typical internship? Do you want to know what it's like to start a company? Do you want to work in a fun, casual, and innovative environment?
If yes, the Xavier Center for Innovation has the best belated Valentine's day gift you'll ever get.
We're bringing the #Startupcincy Internship Fair back to Xavier for a second run. Young, innovative, creative, and fun companies will be at the CFI looking for students like you to join their team.
So take hold of this opportunity. Come in your casual clothes, grab a slice of pizza (did we mention that there will be pizza), and get yourself an internship.
Thursday, February 18, 2016 from 4:30 PM to 7:00 PM (EST) at the Xavier Center for Innovation.

Celebration of Student Research and Creative Activity to be held on Friday, April 15, 2016
Posted: 2/8/16 12:24 PM
The Celebration of Student Research & Creative Activity is held every spring to recognize students' scholarly endeavors performed under the guidance of faculty, and allows students to present their accomplishments to the broader Xavier community. Although the Celebration is hosted by the College of Arts & Sciences, students from all colleges and disciplines are encouraged to submit their work. To expand participation to all colleges this year, we encourage the broadest definition of research and creative activity. As was the case last year, the Celebration will begin around 2:00 pm and finish in the evening with a keynote speaker and recognition of the Undergraduate Research Mentor of the Year.
For more information and to submit an abstract by the March 1st deadline, please follow the link below:

Xavier University's Jesuit Catholic and liberal art traditions call for "an inclusive environment of open and free inquiry” where we invite students, staff and faculty to be “committed to the common good and to the education of the whole person through reflection, compassion and informed action.”
In October 2015, focus groups with some Xavier students, faculty and staff were facilitated by national consultants, Rankin & Associates. Participants helped to shape the upcoming survey that will be live from March 1-24, 2016. All students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to be heard and help inform the university's strategic planning.
Hard copies of the survey will be made available at specific locations: Center for Teaching Excellence, Learning Assistance Center, Human Resources, and the Center for Diversity and Inclusion. Otherwise, you can take the survey online at www.xavier.edu/beheard. During the week of Spring Break, employees without regular access to a computer will be able to use reserved computer labs in the Center for Diversity and Inclusion, Center for International Education, CLC 207, Smith 14, and Smith 21 from 9am-12noon.
Survey results along with three recommendations for improving climate will be shared in Fall 2016.
