About St. Francis Xavier University

University as it is meant to be!

Students come to St. Francis Xavier University (StFX) to lay the groundwork for their future. They leave ready to change the world. StFX is known for our quality teaching, small class sizes, enriching student-faculty interaction, leading-edge research, compassionate community, unique leadership opportunties and our reputation with employers. Students choose from programs in arts, science, business and education that offer exceptional learning opportunities. At StFX, you'll also experience close interaction with faculty, hands-on research, exchange program opportunities, and – integral to the StFX mission – community service.

Faculty members help create an inclusive learning culture with students, and support student success inside and outside the classroom. The first university in Canada to have a formal Service Learning program, StFX is the perfect school for those who value leadership, community development, social justice and global awareness. Students form lifelong bonds in our immersive residence environment, which is at the heart of the StFX experience.

StFX is located on Mi'kma'ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi'Kmaw people, some of whom study and work at StFX today.
