Core Documents

Over the years, Saint Xavier University has developed a set of key documents that guide the institution’s decisions and operations. These Board- and/or sponsor-approved documents include the University’s core values, mission statement, philosophy statement and statement on Catholic and Mercy identity.

The Office for Mission and Heritage posts these documents to the University website, complete with an explanatory commentary. In addition, UMH maintains important historical pages on the SXU website -- explanations of the University seal, of the University’s annual observances of mission, and of Catholic/Mercy sites and symbols on campus, as well as an introduction to the University’s Sister of Mercy founders and sponsors, and a list of key dates in SXU history, 1846 to the present.
