Center for International Education's Mission

The Center for International Education collaboratively leads internationalization efforts and fosters intercultural understanding for students, scholars, faculty and staff. In support of Xavier's mission to prepare students to live in a global society, we provide resources on best practices within international education and coordinate the development of programs and opportunities for learning and growth across cultures. 

Through our Center, we facilitate students to accomplish the following:

  • Students will be successful and adaptable in non-native environments.
  • Students will be accepting and inclusive of multiple cultural perspectives.
  • Students will be interculturally competent.
  • Students will be globally aware and engaged.
