On October 19, 2012

Kris Reilly interviewed Jean Griffin, who took the newly
created position of director of Student Integrity here at Xavier
University. She joins her husband who is on the faculty here
at Xavier and continues her tradition of living out Jesuit ideals.

  • Xavier Newswire: Where did you go to college and what did you study?
  • Jean Griffin: I went to Canisius College in Buffalo, N.Y. which is similar to Xavier in many ways as it is also a Jesuit school. I majored in political science and urban studies and also received my master's degree in higher education and student affairs.
  • XN: What drew you to Xavier?
  • JG: My husband is on faculty here and that is why we moved to Cincinnati. Previously, I worked at the University of Cincinnati, and when the job position in student integrity was posted, I thought Xavier would be a great fit. The Jesuit values and ideals are important to me and I am really happy to be here.
  • XN: As the Director of Student Integrity, what do you hope to focus on?
  • JG: This is a new position in this office and at the University, so I will be transitioning to work with the school's Student Code of Conduct. I see myself as an educator first and hope to help students make good decisions. Just as you learn in the classroom, you also learn by living and working within the campus community. Part of what makes Xavier special is the focus on community, and if we have expectations and rules in place, it will continue to have a positive impact. I also want to focus on continuing to make Xavier a safe campus and a community that values integrity and respect.
  • XN: What are you looking forward to during this academic year?
  • JG: As it is my first week, I am looking forward to meeting with students, faculty and staff and beginning to be part of the Xavier community.
  • XN: What do you enjoy to do in your free time?
  • JG: I enjoy spending time with my husband and three young children. My family is often busy attendingsports activities and horseback riding lessons. I also like tovisit family and friends who are in New York and other areas.
