At Saint Martin's, we think, live and serve with heart.

Community is the heart of our campus. As Saints, we study, work and play together. We invite you to find your place, get involved and change the world however you can.

Who we are and what we believe

Since 1895, Saint Martin's University has been driven by our Benedictine values. These beliefs shape the way we develop our academic programs, create leadership and service opportunities, and build our community. We welcome students from all faiths, viewpoints and backgrounds because we believe the best exchange of ideas occurs in a diverse, inclusive environment.
