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.

  • Become a Mentor. Our mentor program fosters relationships between current students and alumni, providing students meaningful exposure to careers in a variety of professions.
  • Join the Giving Circle. Membership in the Giving Circle means being part of a collaborative, empowered force that improves the University and enhances the lives of students.
  • Events and Programs. Events and programs bring women together to share common experiences and open the lines of communication between alumnae, students and friends. See photos on our facebook page >>

Women of Excellence Grants

Xavier's Women of Excellence formed a giving circle to allow women to collectively support Xavier and encourage the development of women as philanthropic leaders.Giving circle members are alums, parents and friends who recognize that women as donors have the capability of making a tremendous impact on the University, its students, faculty and staff.

Funds from the giving circle are distributed through a grant application process to projects and programs proposed by faculty, staff and student groups of Xavier. The annual distribution of funds to selected campus programs is determined through a voting process by Giving Circle members.
