About Xavier University
Xavier University is an appropriate location for the seminar. Xavier endeavors to manifest its mission which includes “offering learning opportunities through rigorous academic and professional programs which prepare students for a world that is increasingly diverse, complex and interdependent.” Xavier strives to positively affect the world through activities on campus and activities affecting the broader society and the common good. The proposed seminar will provide participants with the knowledge and expertise to prepare their students to directly benefit society. Through their research activities, the outcomes of the proposed seminar will be extended to the academy.
Through the Ruth J. and Robert A. Conway Institute for Jesuit Education, Xavier University has focused on assisting educators in transforming students. The mission of the Conway Institute “reaches beyond the Xavier campus with pedagogical innovations communicated locally, nationally, and internationally.” As such, the seminar, particularly its pedagogical component, is consistent with the mission of the center.
