Striving for excellence in innovation and academics
As a foundational document of Jesuit pedagogy, the Ratio atque Institutio Studiorum Societatis Iesu (Ratio Studiorum) presents a plan of study that standardized the systemic Jesuit model of education in 1599. As a community of learners and educators four Centuries later, we offer the contemporary framework of Cura Studiorum, our Ignatian commitment to caring for the studies in order to train the mind. By ensuring a relentless search for the truth that lies at the intersection of faith and reason, our commitment to Cura Studiorum demands our constancy as educators, as we form our students intellectually, in and beyond the classroom. In Xavier’s setting, this undergirds a commitment to the Liberal Arts and to Ignatian pedagogical practice.
Deepen our academic excellence through bold leadership in health and biomedical sciences.
Building on our established strengths in health and biomedical sciences, Xavier will expand this leadership and our capacity to meet community needs in these areas, at all levels of academic study. We will build best-in-class facilities, matching the innovation and excellence of our faculty, and our stellar student learning outcomes.
