Mission and Identity

Heidt Family Champion Center


"What sets Xavier Athletics apart from other universities is the strong sense of community, a community that has been an integral part of our successful move to the Big East," said Greg Christopher, Director of Athletics. "A key part of the plan is the Heidt Family Champions Center, a competitive advantage for our 11 sports that make a home here. At the end of the day, you're trying to get better and you're trying to do more. And that's what this facility represents — us trying to take one step further."
