Founded in 1923 by the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, the University of Saint Mary has a long tradition of academic excellence.
Generations of Saint Marians have learned to think critically and creatively, to develop their God-given potential and make a difference in our global society. Empowered by their Saint Mary education, they have soared higher than they ever thought possible.
Our student body is growing, and our university needs to grow with them. We need to build the spaces where our students can grow—intellectually, spiritually, and socially.
Fueled by our Saint Mary spirit, we have set forth an ambitious goal to build the Campus for Tomorrow—a $30 million vision that preserves our university's rich history and maximizes our potential to be a leader in Catholic higher education for generations to come.
This is the largest project our university has ever taken on, and it will impact students, faculty, alums, and the community for years to come.
The Campus for Tomorrow builds on our mission and heritage connecting our past to future. It preserves the memories of yesterday, and creates space for tomorrow's success.
The generosity of those who believe in our mission and our students powers this university. We are counting on your support to transform our vision into a reality for our university. Saint Mary has been providing an excellent education for almost a century. This new vision will help propel the Saint Mary legacy into the future.
"Saint Mary has helped me figure out who I am. I've grown in ways I never imagined, and I've been given opportunities I could only dream of. USM changes you—it's prepared me to go make a difference and to believe in my God-given potential. I'm excited to see the university continue to grow."
