Xavier University of Louisiana is America’s only Historically Black and Catholic University which, despite its relatively small size of 3,300 students, is a nationally recognized leader in the STEM and health sciences fields, producing more African American students who graduate from medical school each year than any other university in the United States. Its College of Pharmacy is also among the top producers of African American pharmacists. Today Xavier remains committed to its founding mission of serving the underrepresented Black population and the “the promotion of a more just and humane society.” And yet its doors have, and still are, open to all races and creeds. The university is noted for its school of pharmacy. In addition, it is recognized for its programs in the fields of physics, biology and life sciences, and physical sciences.
