Xavier University of Louisiana, the only historically Black, Catholic university in the United States, is a private, co-educational institution offering a comprehensive liberal arts program and professional programs, including 41 undergraduate majors, seven master’s degree programs and a doctor of pharmacy program. More than one-half of its 3,000 students are from Louisiana, but it draws students from nearly all fifty states and 35 countries. Selected in 2017 as both a “Best Buy” for academics and affordability by the Fisk Guide to Colleges and one of the nation’s “Best 381 Colleges” by The Princeton Review, Xavier is nationally recognized for its success in the sciences, where it annually leads the nation in the number of African American students earning undergraduate degrees in biology, chemistry and physics. Xavier is also No. 1 in the nation in the number of African American graduates who go on to complete medical school, while its College of Pharmacy – one of only two pharmacy schools in Louisiana – is among the nation’s top producers of African American Doctor of Pharmacy degree recipients.
