The Center for Diversity and Inclusion

A Catalyst for Social Change

The mission of the Center for Diversity and Inclusion is to serve as a catalyst for social change at Xavier and beyond. Our space and initiatives foster the development and understanding of cura personalis, belonging, leadership, and transformative justice. We charge the entire campus to engage academically and socially across the intersections of race, class, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
