Supported and nurtured by faculty and staff who are dedicated to our Benedictine philosophy, students at Saint Martin’s develop the values-based convictions that translate into concern for others and the issues that transcend self-interest. As a result, our graduates are lifelong learners imbued with the awareness of diverse perspectives and the interconnectedness of all life. They actively engage in not only their own lives, but in the lives of their communities and the pursuit of a healed, holistic world.

Creating employability

At Saint Martin's we seek to prepare you to enter the workforce as a skilled professional. Applying yourself academically is one way to develop those skills. Complement your academics by completing an internship or applying for student employment (work study, if you qualify).
