What we do
Student Veterans Center
The Student Veterans Center strives to provide the Student Veterans and military-connected students of Xavier University a safe, studious, and recreational setting. Located on campus at the Conaton Learning Commons in room 529, the Student Veterans Center offers Student Veterans a space of their own where they can print off papers, work on assignments, or have a cup of coffee and friendly conversation.
The Center is a place to unwind, connect with fellow Veterans, and to access to the valuable resources the staff makes available. The Student Veteran Center has comfortable chairs for relaxing, desks for coursework, computers and printers available for use, as well as a conference room and offices for group projects.
The Student Veterans Center has multiple resources available to both Student Veterans and military-connected students including financial aid and planning, academic advising, and career coaching.

This lab is a free service to all Xavier students in Math classes numbered 105 through 171 (With the exception of 125).
An upper level mathematics major (or minor) or the lab director, Mr. Chris Staat, is on duty for assistance in any of these classes.
It is a great place to come and work on homework, either by yourself or with a small group, and have someone available to answer any questions. Drop-in question and answer type sessions are our specialty in the Mathematics Tutoring Lab.
If you are enrolled in one of the courses, you should receive a bookmark with all of this information. Keep it with your textbook so the hours are always handy.
Any questions/concerns, contact Mr. Chris Staat via email or at (513)745-3250.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support program that targets traditionally difficult courses. A trained peer tutor attends the lecture class, takes notes, and facilitates study sessions for the course. All students in the course are encouraged to participate in the study sessions.
