Xaverian Community Foundations

It is a priority at StFX to ensure we learn and live in a safe,  respectful and anti-racist community. With that in mind, Student Services has launched new resources to help you show your commitment to being Xaverian. 

Three modules, Safer Socializing @X, Consent Education is Visible @X and You Belong @X, have been developed and updated over the last year in order to help all members of our institution become ambassadors of the Xavierian Way.


The three modules will take you about three hours total to complete. The goal of this training is to introduce the concepts of what it is to be part of a respectful community, with a strong focus on understanding sexualized violence and racism and the practical knowledge and skills needed to build a culture of consent and anti-racism here at StFX.

Some of the topics covered in the training can be difficult or triggering. Remember to take your time and do what you need to do to take care of yourself.  There are a number of services and supports available to you if you need them.

StFX is committed to supporting anyone impacted by sexualized violence or racism. The modules will also outline how instances of sexualized violence and racism are addressed and the resources available to support you.

To access the training simply look for X Starts Here and X Continues Here on your Moodle page. The modules will be in gold.



All three modules are required for incoming students.  Our goal is to have 60% of incoming students complete the modules by September 4th, with a total of 80% completing them by September 26th, which is the Xaverian Welcome Ceremony.

Throughout August and September all incoming students who have completed the three modules will be entered into a draw for one of multiple prize packs. Draws will take place once a week in August and every two weeks in September.


Our vision is a community of respect, free of sexualized violence. We all share the responsibility to create a safe and respectful campus community.
