Xavier launched the public phase of its Together. For Others. The Campaign for Xavier University at the end of September with a campaign goal of $250 million. Thanks to the generosity of many donors during the campaign's quiet phase, more than 60 percent of the goal has already been achieved.
But perhaps the most visible piece of this campaign is the $54 million Health United Building, opening in fall 2019. The HUB, as it’s called currently, will usher in a new way of providing a health-conscious experience for our students by bringing health-related academics, a health and wellness clinic, and a new recreation center together under one roof.
HUB BREAKS GROUND
On Dec. 11, Xavier and TriHealth broke ground on the HUB in a ceremony that featured University and TriHealth officials, students, faculty and staff.
Located at 1714 Cleneay Ave. in Norwood, the four-level, 160,300 square-foot facility will include classrooms for health-related academic programs, a new state-of-the-art fitness and recreation center, and a holistic health and wellness center to provide expert care for students.
“We believe this building will play a critical role in shaping our students—who they become and how they live in the future,” said Xavier University President Michael J. Graham, S.J. “We know that today’s students want balanced and healthy lifestyles. This building is designed to meet the physical, mental and wellness needs of all students and the fast-changing, academic needs of our health sciences students. Partnering with TriHealth, we know we can meet and exceed these goals.”
“This affiliation is so uniquely focused, like no other in the country, on caring for the whole person—mind, body and spirit,” said TriHealth CEO and President Mark C. Clement. “Whether it starts in the classroom, leads to a great performance on the court, drives healthier behaviors or increases positive connections in the community, this affiliation will touch lives and transform people, not only on campus, but throughout the region and nation.”
