As I reflect on the past year, I wish to thank you, the Xavier community, for your abundant support in making 2016 such a tremendous year. It is great to see the enthusiasm and passion you have in supporting our students. The gifts of your time, talent and treasure have resulted in many changes on campus and in the classrooms, but more importantly, in the lives of our students. I invite each of you to stay involved with Xavier University, for we truly are a Community for Life.
