The Xavier Family-Faculty

"Xavier University is an intellectual community of teachers and scholars dedicated for forming students intellectually, morally and spiritually with rigor and compassion toward lives of solidarity, service and success."  --Michael J. Graham, S.J.

As you begin to familiarize yourself with the University and get to know some of the people who work here, you'll quickly discover the term 'The Xavier Family.'  It's a common expression, and for good reason. At Xavier, we truly see everyone who works here as a valued family member.   

Benefits Orientation-Faculty

You'll soon receive an invitation to attend a faculty-only benefits orientation session.  Courtesy of a timely response is requested.

The meetings are casual, yet attendance is imperative. Key details regarding plan options, eligibility and online enrollment will be discussed. TIAA-CREF representatives will also be on hand to introduce financial and retirement planning services, and assistance with finalizing on-boarding paperwork will also be provided.

Participation also offers a prelude to assimilating the University's mission into professional identities. And, it's a great way to meet new colleagues.

Additional on-boarding forms may be completed in advance and submitted in person to OHR when you attend benefits orientation.

Form I-9 and payroll designation

Employers are required by law to ensure compliance with Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification), which entails physically examining each original identification document(s).  You may complete Section 1-Employee Information and Attestation in advance. Leave Section 2-Employer or Authorized Representative Review and Verification blank.

An OHR representative must physically examine and certify each original identification document. For this purpose, all new faculty must present unexpired acceptable documents on the day of their benefits orientation. 

Employees must elect one of two payroll options: Direct deposit or bank card. Present a voided check (or record of bank account/routing numbers) to orientation if you're planning to elect direct deposit.  


Mortgages/Job Verifications

Xavier University's OHR commonly receives inquiries from incoming faculty who intend to purchase a new home before the fall term commences. OHR gladly responds to requests to provide general letters of job verification for mortgage application purposes. However, we cannot modify the offer letter nor any language associated with the Provost-extended contract. (This includes conditions of employment--e.g., receipt of official transcripts--which are viewed by some underwriters as loan approval "contingencies.")
