An important message from the Saint Martin’s Admissions Team
The events over the last several weeks have magnified the systemic racism that the Black community in our country faces every day. As an institution of higher learning, we are committed to addressing these issues within our society. Saint Martin's University firmly believes there is no place for racism, prejudice, or hate in our community, or in the global community.
We take this topic seriously and stand with all those who oppose prejudice and hate. We wholeheartedly condemn any actions that are done, or words that are spoken that promote racism, hatred, ignorance, or prejudice. These things are antithetical to our beliefs and the very values we were founded with 125 years ago.
At Saint Martin’s, we talk of our Benedictine values such as peace, justice, and hospitality. We take pride in our ability to live those values every day, however, these commitments are hollow gestures if we cannot continue to live our values when faced with systemic issues not only within our society, but within our institution as well.
As the Saint Martin’s Office of Admissions, we will make the commitment to:
- Work to address issues of systemic racism within the traditional admissions process by providing all students the same opportunity to receive a higher education by doing a holistic review of each student’s application, and removing the barrier of requiring test scores due to the implicit bias within standardized testing.
- Recruit a diverse and well-rounded student population.
- Provide educational workshops and resources to our colleagues at community-based organizations and high schools that serve Black and other underrepresented student groups.
- Continue to partner with organizations and programs that promote and fight for equality such as Degrees of Change, Turning the Tide College Admissions Campaign, and Act Six.
- Most importantly, we promise to listen, continue to learn and educate ourselves, and continue to improve.
To our Black, indigenous and other students of color and community members of color: We stand with you and we will work hard to make sure you feel safe, heard, and know that you matter to us.
