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.
