Diversity and Inclusion

You have a place here at Xavier University.
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 differences and experiences add up to strengthen our community and classrooms. Explore how we support and actively work to encounter diverse and intersectional communities on campus and join us in creating a more equitable and inclusive campus for all.
