Xavier University of Louisiana

New Orleans, Louisiana

Xavier University of Louisiana is Catholic and historically Black. The ultimate purpose of the University is the promotion of a more just and humane society. To this end, Xavier prepares its students to assume roles of leadership and service in society. This preparation takes place in a pluralistic teaching and learning environment that incorporates all relevant educational means, including research and community service.

Xavier's student body is predominantly African American (76%), but the university is open to all. Recent years have seen a growing influx of out-of-state students, yet one-half of the university’s 3,000 students are from Louisiana. The University’s pre-Hurricane Katrina (2005) enrollment was 4,100.

Xavier's curriculum is liberal arts oriented and requires all students to follow a core curriculum, but today more than half of its undergraduate students currently major in the natural or health sciences, with the most popular choices being biology, chemistry, business and pharmacy. Other preferred majors include mass communications, political science, and psychology and computer science. In all, Xavier offers training in some three dozen fields on the undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree level.

According to the U.S. Department of Education, Xavier continues to rank first nationally in the number of African American students earning undergraduate degrees in both the biological/life sciences and the physical sciences. Xavier was one of only six schools chosen to participate in the National Science Foundation’s Model Institutions for Excellence in Science, Engineering and Mathematics program.
