Interview with Xavier President Emeritus Norman C. Francis

In March, 2019, the Xavier Story Project kicked off its first week of production with three days of interviews with Dr. Norman Francis, who served not only as Xavier’s President for 47 years—longer than any other university president in American history—but also as the head of the Louisiana Recovery Authority after Hurricane Katrina.
