Watch - All One

All for one

More than 7,000 people call Xavier home. We’re first-generation students, veterans and people of color. We speak different languages and worship as Catholics, Muslims, Jews and more. We identify as LGBTQIA+, men, women and non-gender conforming. We’re people with disabilities, both visible and non-apparent. All of our experiences add up to strengthen our community and classrooms.
