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.
Transforming our students to transform their world
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.
Students interested in leadership positions are immersed in skills founded on the Benedictine principles of dignity of work, respect for others, hospitaity and stewardship.
Balance the Benedictine way
Student affairs is committed to inculcating 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.
Supporting students in and out of the classroom
All students need support in their navigation of college life. In student affairs, we offer a variety of services and programs that address the specific needs and concerns of students. Every student can thrive and succeed in and out of the classroom.
Diversity, spirituality, and leadership involvement
Student affairs offers numerous opportunities for students to get involved on campus, whether through student leadership programs, service immersion trips, spirituality retreats, or student clubs and organizations. We aim to create an engaged campus community in which students can reach their fullest potential as persons and make a positive impact on the Saint Martin’s campus and in their communities.
