Welcome to the University of St. Thomas!

For more than 65 years, this university has focused on one important mission: educating leaders of faith and character.

From across the city and around the world, 3,600 students are drawn to this university each year because of the distinctive nature of a St. Thomas education.

They are drawn by our small class sizes that encourage great dialogue and personal engagement; by our Basilian Catholic legacy of teaching and our faith-based education; and by our core curriculum that builds a solid foundation for degree programs in business, education, science, technology and many more fields of study.

The vibrant dialogue at UST between faith and reason prepares students to think clearly, seek the truth boldly and confidently, communicate effectively, think critically and build an ethical and moral foundation for leadership in their professional and personal lives.

Our students learn more because they have access to exceptional faculty who teach, guide and mentor them; 94 percent of full-time faculty members have the highest degree in their field. Our high acceptance rate into medical school, our cooperative degree program in engineering, the new school of nursing and the impressive global accreditation of our Cameron School of Business demonstrate our success.

More than 19,500 UST alumni are making a difference across our city and around the world. They are physicians in the world’s largest medical center and teachers in the Fifth Ward of Houston. They are researchers and fundraisers, writers and counselors, entrepreneurs and nurses – many of them leading in businesses and organizations across the Houston region.

We are fortunate to live, work and learn in the fourth largest and most diverse city in America, and our campus is located just minutes from the Texas Medical Center and adjacent to a thriving museum district. The region’s vibrant economy provides a great resource for student internships and career opportunities after graduation.

Growth in our science, technology, engineering and mathematics programs has led to plans for a new Center for Science and Health Professions, for which we will break ground in November 2015 as well as a new Center for Performing Arts – and we are looking forward to these enhancements to our 19-block urban campus in the heart of the city.

Our vision is for the University of St. Thomas to become one of America’s great Catholic universities in the next 15 years, and we are well on our way. We are confident in our mission, and we have faith in our students, in our faculty and in our benefactors. We have faith in our future.

Thank you for your interest in St. Thomas.

With faith in our future,

Robert Ivany
President
