Attorney General Buddy Caldwell recently visited the campus of historic Xavier University in New Orleans to meet with university officials. The attorney general was greeted by Xavier’s longtime president, Dr. Norman Francis, who led a grand tour through the beautiful campus.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, Xavier continues to rank first nationally in the number of African American students earning undergraduate degrees in both the biological/life sciences and the physical sciences. The College of Pharmacy, one of only two pharmacy schools in Louisiana, is among the nation’s top three producers of African American Doctor of Pharmacy degree recipients.
Founded in 1925, Xavier retains its distinction as the only historically Black, Catholic University in the United States.
