Message from the dean of students
Whether you are a prospective student or current student, parent, alum, friend of the University or just browsing, we welcome you. At Saint Martin's University, we strive to support student development both in and out of the classroom. The Benedictine monks of the Saint Martin's University and Abbey are grounded in the Rule of Saint Benedict which emphasizes hospitality, outreach and community. Within our community, there are many unique opportunities to support your development as a student and individual.

Student affairs mission statement

Promoting the Catholic Benedictine understanding of faith, reason, service, and community, the Department of Student Affairs educates students through experiential co-curricular programming. We teach continual listening and reflection in order to foster an awareness of difference that encourages students to work towards a just society. Our students will understand their moral obligation to a multicultural world and become faithful, compassionate and conscientious stewards of their communities.

The following departments work collaboratively to facilitate student success:
