Like our founders, Saint Martin's Abbey, a Catholic Benedictine Order, Saint Martin's University is guided by our Benedictine heritage. The values described in St. Benedict of Nursia’s guide, The Rule of St. Benedict, permeate the atmosphere at Saint Martin’s University. They can be felt in every building, in every office, in every classroom where the members of the Saint Martin’s community live in service to one another and the world around them.
Below are some of those values, an interpretation of each, and its reference in the Rule of St. Benedict. You'll also find these values referenced across this website, as we do in our community, whenever we talk about programs, departments, and stories.
