Sister Rose Ann Fleming Endowment
This endowment was established to ensure the academic support necessary to continue the high level of academic advising our student-athletes benefit from. This fund is named to honor Sister Rose Ann Fleming who is nothing short of a legend on Xavier's campus. She has served as academic advisor to student-athletes at Xavier for over 25 years. During her tenure at Xavier, she has ensured every senior men's basketball player during her time at Xavier, earned their diploma. A feat in division-one college basketball that is virtually unmatched. To ensure her level of world-class support indefinitely, Xavier must secure funding to continue providing the best in academic advising for Xavier student-athletes.
Athletes have a learned experience from athletics of giving 110%, of never giving up, of playing until the buzzer rings, of emptying themselves to attain a greater good. Why not transform these athletes as students into goal seeking scholars?" Quote from Sister Rose Ann Fleming.
