Saint Martin’s University is a place where teaching, learning and the sharing of ideas extends far beyond the classrooms. Through the interaction of faith, reason and service each member of our community--students, faculty and staff--makes a difference in one another’s lives, and in the life of the University.

When you become a part of Saint Martin’s University, you become a part of a community of a diverse blend of talented enthusiastic individuals who encourages the understanding of varied viewpoints and the appreciation of all cultures.
