Founded in 1831 in Cincinnati, Ohio, Xavier University is one of the oldest Catholic Jesuit universities in the United States. In anticipation of the university’s 175th anniversary, historian Roger Fortin has written an in-depth history of it. To See Great Wonders is also an astute addition to our understanding of Jesuit higher education and its place in American history. Fortin explores the challenges the university community faced from its early years to the present day, as it learned to balance its commitment to Jesuit educational tradition with a desire to evolve along with an ever-changing American society.
