About Xavier

When we seek something more, we become something greater.

At Xavier, we’re about so much more than just classrooms and school sweatshirts and a pretty campus. (Don’t worry, we have those too.) This is the kind of more the world needs. The kind of more a Jesuit institution offers—the kind that welcomes everyone, regardless of faith or identity and invites in more perspectives, more hard questions and more acceptance. This is more care in the world and more care for you as the whole person you are. If you’re ready to add more meaning to everything you do, to find more faith in whatever you believe in—including yourself—you’ve come to the right place.

Find More Meaning

Magis—Latin for “more”—challenges us all to go beyond what’s expected, bringing more generosity, excellence and empathy to the world. With a focus on learning through community service and interdisciplinary courses, you’ll find more meaning in everything you do in and out of the classroom, for yourself and for the good of the world.

Discover More Faith

A Jesuit Catholic education offers so much more than just intellectual growth—it’s about grappling with tough questions, fearlessly exploring the unknown, valuing diversity and difference and becoming the full person you’re meant to be.

Learn Beyond the Classroom

We offer a liberal arts education that’s so much more than just checking off yet another academic requirement. This is where you’ll learn how—not what—to think. Xavier offers more than 90 undergraduate majors, 90 minors, 30 graduate programs and 9 online programs.

Holistic Health and Wellness

Cura personalis—care for the whole person—is central to everything we do at Xavier. That means your physical and mental health and safety mean more to us than anything. When you want to get moving, head to the HUB (Health United Building); you’ll find everything you need to have fun and break a sweat.
