Xavier University of Louisiana Administration

Xavier University of Louisiana has a long history of welcoming students to its community to advance the work of its founder, Saint Katharine Drexel, and to create a more just and humane society for everyone. The mission set forth nearly 100 years ago is still relevant today. Every person who comes through Xavier's doors is an essential part of that mission, as Xavier is a community dedicated to academic excellence and more.

At Xavier, they live out their mission by offering co-curricular programming, serving the community, and continuing the legacy of Xavierites who have been leading voices for change and justice for generations. The growth and development that students experience at Xavier is the result of a supportive community that provides them with the resources they need to achieve their personal goals, and where they are also enriched by the talents and gifts that they bring to Xavier.
