Transforming our students to transform their world
College life at Saint Martin’s University extends well beyond the classroom. It is a place for students to explore and examine who they are as human beings and to consider more fully what their responsibilities and obligations are as citizens. In Student Affairs, we are dedicated to fulfilling the mission of Saint Martin’s University by supporting the development and learning of students “in their ongoing journey of becoming.” Inspired and informed by our Benedictine Catholic heritage, we offer multiple programs and opportunities that challenge students to grow and develop in mind, body, and spirit. We do this by creating a learning environment in which our students can enhance their knowledge and skills in student leadership and diversity programs, build community through intramural sports and recreational activities, raise deep questions of faith and values, and promote the common good in the service to others.
Being a leader requires listening, reflecting and opening to the experiences of others. Our Benedictine Leaders Program prepares students seeking leadership positions with the skills they need to be effective.
Violence can happen to anyone, regardless of income level, race, religion, gender, sexual preference or age. Students at Saint Martin's founded SAVE, Saints Against Violence Everywhere, to raise awareness and make a difference.

Student affairs is committed to instilling the Benedictine practice of balance in mind, body and spirit. We sponsor a wide-variety of health and wellness programs, from recreation activities and intramural sports to health and wellness education. Our programs help create a culture of balance between the academic, spiritual and recreational aspects of college life.
