Saint Xavier University continues to build upon the ideals of its founders and sponsors, the Sisters of Mercy, who in 1846, inspired by their Catholic faith and its mandate of union and charity, established an academy defined by intellectual rigor in the tradition of the Liberal Arts, the encouragement of religious faith, and action in solidarity with the economically poor of the world, especially women and children.

Students at Saint Xavier encounter a wide range of course work, co-curricular activities, community experiences, and support services designed to enhance their learning at all levels, and to help them develop more fully as confident, contributing citizen leaders of an ever-increasingly complex and global community.
