We invite all first and second year STEM students to apply.  You do not need experience teaching, nor do you need to be interested in teaching as a career.  A heart for service and your subject is all you need! The 2016 internship will run 6/6-8/5, with a 6/5 move-in.  For more information and to apply please visit:

We have expanded our internship opportunities this year! About half our interns will work with Dr. Gary Lewandowski and Dr. Carla Gerberry in running an on campus summer camp. You will assist in planning activities, supervising high school student staff, supervising middle school participants, and help plan programming to help the high school staff learn more about college life, applying for college, and such.  

Four to six interns will be selected to spend nine weeks with Breakthrough Cincinnati. Those interested is this amazing Breakthrough experience must also apply directly to Breakthrough Cincinnati.  Those interested in only the Xavier College Bound Camps can apply at

First and second year students with a passion for service are strongly encouraged to apply. The first week of the program will include a STEM-teaching boot camp. Students will live on the Xavier University campus, receiving room and board (including $750 food stipend) as well as a $400/week stipend. During the internship, students will keep journals and meet with mentors to reflect upon their experiences. Faculty and staff from the STEM departments, education department and Community Building Institute will work with students to expand their knowledge and interest in teaching inner-city/at-risk students."

The application deadline is February 26, 2016.

In 2011, Michael Woodford was named the first non-Japanese President of Olympus.  Three months into his tenure, he discovered a $2 billion fraud, orchestrated by the Chairman of Olympus' board.  Mr. Woodford demanded the Chairman be forced to resign, but the board refused.  Woodford contacted the financial press, and was subsequently terminated from Olympus.  In 2012, he wrote the best selling UK business book "Exposure: From CEO to Whistleblower", and lectures all over the world dealing with fraud and corruption.  Michael Woodford is a special friend of Xavier's longest running London program, and is tentatively scheduled to have dinner with Professor Fiorelli's class in July of 2016.  Join us in this fascinating story of high finance and fraud.

Students in Xavier's Longest running London program can take two of the following three classes, all meeting in the mornings of Monday - Thursday:

BLAW300 (Professor Fiorelli) - a required course for all business majors, but since there's no pre-requisites, all students are welcome.  This course is also an E/RS focus elective, a DCR elective, and a GDST elective.

PHIL200 (Dr. Polt) - satisfies the 2d level philosophy requirement, or a humanities elective.

THEO (Dr. Helmer) - satisfies the 2d level theology requirment, or a humanities elective.

For more information, please contact Professor Fiorelli at, (513)745-2050, visit or like us at

Professor James Helmer is offering "Religion, Politics, and Culture in Contemporary Britain" in London during the month of July 2016.  Visits to sites of historical and contemporary significance (St. Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, the Palace of Westminster, the Tower of London) are a central element in this experientially-driven course that explores the religious, political, and cultural landscape of contemporary Britain.

This course satisfies the CORE course requirement for "Theological Perspectives", "Humanities Electives", and "E/RS focus electives".

The other taught courses in the London Program are Professor Fiorelli's "BLAW 300" course - which is a required course for Business majors, but also satisfies an E/RS focus elective, a GDST elective and a DCR elective - and Professor Polt's "Philosophy of Beauty" course - which satisfies either the "Philosophical Perspectives" or "Humanities Electives" Core course requirements.

Students take two out of the three courses in Monday-Thursday morning classes.

For more information, contact Professor Fiorelli at, (513)745-2050, or like us on
