Department of English

As faculty in the English Department at Xavier University, we are committed to the Jesuit values of solidarity and kinship, for and with others. In line with these values, we are committed to anti-racist action and working toward justice in our daily lives.

We believe in the power of literature to build empathy and understanding.

We believe in the power of language to move people to action and justice.

We commit to working toward this justice in our classrooms.

As faculty in the English Department at Xavier University, we whole-heartedly assert that Black Lives Matter.

To our black students and colleagues, we commit to work alongside you for justice.

To all of our students, colleagues, alumni, and friends, we invite you to join our anti-racist work. All for one, and one for all.
