According to the school, 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. So that they will be able to assume roles of leadership and service, Xavier graduates will be: prepared for continual spiritual, moral, and intellectual development; liberally educated in the knowledge and skills required for leadership and service; and educated in a major field so that they are prepared to complete graduate or professional school and to succeed in a career and in life. Recent enrollment and retention decreases have been recognized as a few of the temporary effects of Hurricane Katrina. As more students return we look forward to Xavier University of Louisiana once again being a leader amongst the nations colleges and universities. Our current Student Government President illustrates the unique qualities and strengths of our institution.
