|Faith in Our Future Campaign Supports Bold UST Vision of Becoming One of America’s Great Catholic Universities
We have faith in our mission, faith in our people, faith in our programs and faith in our
community. And we have faith that St. Thomas – with its high academic quality, focus on students, distinctive purpose and rich Catholic intellectual tradition – can be a transformational force for good in our region and our world. Our vision is to become one of America’s great Catholic universities, and we will start by being a shining star in one of the finest cities in the world.
Faith in Our Future: The Campaign for the University of St. Thomas is designed to help us achieve our vision. This important campaign is focused on three critical priorities.
Health and Science
We are building on our unprecedented partnership with the community and a new model for connecting the Basilian Catholic liberal arts to science, technology, engineering and math education. This initiative includes reopening the School of Nursing (including five Endowed Chairs) and our highest priority, building a Center for Science and Health Professions.
Our goal is to enhance support for our excellent faculty and programs, and to increase scholarships to ensure access to a diverse population and compete for leaders of faith and character. This initiative includes much-needed funds for scholarships and endowed faculty chairs as well as faculty and program/ departmental support and strategic property acquisition to complete the campus footprint.
We are strengthening the unique partnership with Houston’s arts community, as well as our campus community, to foster creativity across disciplines and provide an exceptional gathering space. This initiative includes building a multidisciplinary Performing Arts Center.
We seek partners to join us as we confidently move forward with Faith in Our Future. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 713-942-5955.
