At St. Catherine University, we take seriously the idea of asking students to claim — or own — their education. We believe that all students have the potential to achieve more than they think they can. That's why we offer multiple learning opportunities — inside and outside the classroom, near and far, simple and challenging.
Our approach to learning is holistic. The integration of curricular and co-curricular experience is expressed as the St. Catherine Experience.
During your time at St. Kate's, you will realize and benefit from eight themes woven throughout your educational experiences:
- Scholarship and Excellence
- Lead and Influence
- Liberal Arts and Your Major
- Social Justice and Spiritual Development
- Meaningful Mentorship
- Diversity and Global Perspectives
- Preparing for the Future
We want you to leave St. Kate's empowered — and more confident than when you arrived.
According to the late author and poet Adrienne Rich, “There is a more essential experience that you owe yourselves….which finally depends on you, in all your interactions with yourself and your world.”
Welcome to the St. Catherine Experience.
