Women of Excellence

Women of Excellence 

Make a Gift

The Women of Excellence was created to honor, extend and advance the legacy of Xavier's and Edgecliff's extraordinary women graduates, as well as provide opportunities for women to grow as organizational and philanthropic leaders for the University.

The Giving Circle

UPDATE ON WOX GRANTS:  Women of Excellence will not be awarding giving circle grants this fiscal year.  As several of our original giving circle donors have moved onto their own personal philanthropy projects at Xavier (which is good news, this is exactly how a giving circle is supposed to work – to bring new donors in the door) there isn’t enough funding coming in to maintain a giving circle. The Women of Excellence will continue to work towards its mission of advancing women’s leadership and philanthropy at Xavier with our programs throughout the year. 


The Women of Excellence mentoring program is a partnership with the University's Career Development Center. We invite you to share your experience and practical real-world advice with our students by becoming a mentor. As a mentor, you become a role model who can make a difference in the lives and career choices of our students. Not only is this a fulfilling and rewarding opportunity for both you and students, but it's also a way for you to stay connected to the University and the Jesuit legacy of being a woman for others.
