Xavier University is a Laudato Sí University
President Hanycz committed Xavier University in late 2021 to participate in Pope Francis’s Laudato Sí Action Platform to boldly advance each of its seven goals. In 2022, Xavier’s Laudato Sí Steering Committee was formed. With broad representation from the Xavier community, a 10-member Steering Committee formed working groups involving more than 40 additional students, faculty, and staff. They have developed the draft Laudato Sí Plan, which will become part of the University’s new Strategic Plan.
