One of the top historically black colleges/universities (HBCU), Xavier University of Louisiana prides itself on educating students in a range of subjects, to provide a “thriving underlying foundation, upon which students can achieve the very best for themselves.” Though perhaps best known for its science departments, the New Orleans-based school has both a College of Arts and Sciences and a College of Pharmacy and requires “high academic standards” for all of majors across the board. Between its academic reputation and the emphasis placed on community leadership, no matter the reason that you go to XU, you leave “fully educated.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
