Return to Normal

Looking ahead to the fall semester, Xavier University is strongly encouraging students and employees to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. All approved vaccines have been proven safe and effective, and vaccine appointments are readily available near Xavier’s campus. Full FDA approval of the vaccine or additional guidance from the CDC or the state of Ohio may cause the University to decide to require the vaccine, so please get vaccinated now. The more vaccinated our community is, the better position we will be in this fall.

In addition to the personal protection provided by the vaccine, Xavier joins with other Catholic organizations to promote vaccination as an act of charity and solidarity with others that will help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and build immunity against the virus. TriHealth has helpful COVID-19 vaccine FAQs to address common questions or hesitations about the vaccine, and all Xavier community members are encouraged to reach out to their medical provider with specific questions or concerns.

The health and safety of the Xavier community are at the forefront of all University policies in response to COVID-19. Our commitment to each other’s health and safety is an extension of our approach to being in community together as Musketeers: All for One and One for All.

Fall 2021 Semester

“Xavier anticipates to be back to mostly normal operations this fall,” shared Xavier President, Fr. Michael Graham. “We are simply better in-person. We proved that we could hold classes and live on campus during this academic year. Of course, we will continue to follow appropriate safety protocols. Our aspiration is to return to a normal collegiate experience as quickly as possible. If the vaccine distributions occur as expected, the University will maximize in-person instruction and restore many events and activities as appropriate with necessary precautions in place.”
