CINCINNATI (AP) — A Jesuit Catholic university in southwest Ohio will have degree ceremonies Saturday for nearly 1,800 students.

Xavier (ZAY'-vyur) University says it will confer 1,006 undergraduate degrees in its 177th commencement ceremonies Saturday morning, followed by 784 graduate degrees in the afternoon.

The undergraduate commencement speaker will be Kevin Fleming, a 1994 Xavier graduate who is the Peace Corps country director for Liberia. He has worked for nonprofit organizations around the world.

The speaker for the afternoon ceremony will be Nathaniel Jones, retired federal appeals court judge and longtime civil rights activist.

The school says it will live-stream the Cincinnati ceremonies through its website.
