Inscription on the entering plaque:

                                                   As the longest serving president in Xavier history,                                                Fr. Graham’s vision expressed that, “Xavier men and                                                 women become people of learning and reflection,                                                integrity and achievement, in solidarity for and with                                                   others.” This Labyrinth offers an invitation to all                                                  members of the community to reflect and discern                                                 their own path, always asking “Where is the more                                                                            universal good?”
