WHO WE ARE
Being America’s only historically Black and Catholic University is just the first of the distinctions that have set Xavier University of Louisiana apart for over nine decades.
As Xavier enters its second century of service, we remain rooted in our faith, passionately pursuing our mission in our unique role as the only Black, Catholic institution in the nation, with a special concern for diversity and inclusion; creating a more just and humane world, and a more sustainable world; and continuing to strengthen our academic performance and success.
We are inspired by our foundress, St. Katherine Drexel and her vision, ability, and commitment to adapt and evolve to meet the changing needs of her times. Xavier continues to be guided by its Foundress’ vision and remains rooted in its mission to be a globally recognized University that celebrates diversity, fosters an intellectual environment of academic excellence, and educates future leaders who will build a just and humane society. Despite Xavier’s relatively small size of 3,300 students, we continue to be the nationally recognized leader in the STEM and the health sciences, producing more African American students who graduate from medical schools each year than any other university in the United States.
Xavier’s College of Pharmacy is among the top producers of African American pharmacists.
Our liberal arts-based programs in business, education, psychology, and political science – as well as such recent additions as our newly announced Physician Assistant program in partnership with Ochsner Health Systems, bioinformatics, data science, neuroscience, crime and social justice, and jazz studies – offer students an unbeatable combination of traditional classroom study, hands-on research, service-learning opportunities, and experiential education.
The winning Xavier formula? Provide students with a well-balanced curriculum and an environment that nurtures their intellect and feeds their souls.
Supporting Xavier University of Louisiana is one of the best investments you can make. The impact of your giving goes beyond the borders of the campus, into the local community and out into the world.
