New Student Induction

New Student Pledge

As a new student of Saint Xavier University, I dedicate myself to academic study, personal development and to the University community.

I embrace the University’s commitment to truth, scholarship, and wisdom. I will strive to live the University’s core values and to improve my community through active participation. I will follow the Code of Student Conduct. I will challenge myself to embody, through my words and actions, the qualities of Mercy, honoring the dignity and essential worth of all individuals. I will respect the diversity of opinions, ideas, and backgrounds, which are vital to University life.

Further, I accept the obligation of academic honesty, which is essential to honor the work of others and to fulfill the fundamental goals of the University. I accept, as well, the responsibilities of a future graduate: lifelong commitment to my community, my alma mater, and my own quest for wisdom.
