Welcome to Saint Xavier University and our new website! You are now entering the portals of Chicago’s oldest Catholic university-founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1846. One of 16 Mercy colleges and universities across the country, we are participants in a vibrant network that joins more than 43,000 students nationwide and a global community of educators-from Australia to South Africa to the Philippines. Founded early on to educate women and the poor, Saint Xavier University students today are a microcosm of the 21st century workforce, with a population that is 40 percent minority and among the most diverse in the City of Chicago.
