See the World, Xavier Style
At Xavier, we celebrate the world by sending our students out into it. Take the Brueggeman Fellows, for example. Every year, up to 10 students design an independent study course on a topic of their choosing, and then travel to another country to spend the summer conducting firsthand research. We've sent students to study health care in Kenya, immigration in Germany, politics in Nepal, fair trade coffee in Guatemala and more.
Xavier's Brueggeman Fellows have been to more than 42 countries already. Each trip was a valuable, immersive experience full of growth and inspiration. After graduating, these students have gone on to form their own nonprofits, pursue graduate degrees, enter law school and more. "Being a Fellow was about finding a humble confidence in myself that I never knew existed," one former Fellow says.
Besides the Brueggeman Fellowships, Xavier also offers study abroad programs, overseas internships, Alternative Breaks and Academic Service Learning semesters. So grab a globe and give it a spin—where do you want to go? If you can dream it, we'll help you do it.
