8:30 am - 2:00 pm

Registration is closed for this semester.


This Spring, Xavier's Office of Human Resources and Center for Mission and Identity will co-sponsor two days of solidarity and service for faculty and staff as we continue to grow our relationships with our local community.

As you know, part of our Jesuit tradition is to develop people for and with others. Striving to live out Xavier's new well-being model which encourages us to make connections with our community, as well as our newly revised Mission Statement which includes the value of service and two of the Gifts of Our Ignatian Heritage (Solidarity and Kinship and Service Rooted in Justice and Love), we encourage all faculty and staff to sign-up to support the local community on one of the two service days.

For more information, contact Stephanie Bolen in the Office of Human Resources or Joe Shadle in the Center for Mission and Identity.
