This website was created to provide faculty members with information regarding Diversity-Flagged courses in the Core Curriculum.

Core SLO 4a

“This course is part of the Xavier Core Curriculum, which aims to develop people of learning and reflection, integrity and achievement, in solidarity for and with others.  It addresses the following core learning objectives at the introductory level:
