Xavier Faces

Albert Anderson, Department of Graduate Counseling

As a professor emeritus, Anderson jokes that he’s “old and decrepit,” stored away in his office/closet where he bides his time playing with his computer. His youthful humor aids his work counseling graduate students. In his spare time, Anderson is also chair of the national youth advocate program—a non-profit group that lobbies and intercedes on behalf of at-risk youth.

Lisa Anderson, Office of Development

“I like the culture here at Xavier—small, Jesuit, Catholic, religious,” says Anderson, who’s worked at Xavier for 16 years. As a staff assistant, she says she enjoys being creative when working with potential donors and “knowing that I’ve helped someone give a major donation to Xavier.” She says that helping students get a good education is also about educating men and women for others.

Christine Anderson, Department of History

As co-chair of gender and diversity studies, Anderson is focused on designing a new introductory course for the minor. “Working with the latest theoretical models for discussing diversity is a project near and dear to my heart,” she says. “As an academic and an ethical issue, this community and the world are called to think about issues of diversity.” The course debuts during October’s academic day.

Reneé Zucchero, McGrath Health & Counseling Center

Helping students cope with depression, anxiety and the everyday stresses of college are just a few of the issues Zucchero deals with daily as a psychologist. In addition to meeting with students, she coordinates the University’s wellness team—a group of faculty, staff and students interested in programming that promotes healthy life decisions.
