UST Named to Newman Guide for Catholicity
11/5/2013

The University of St. Thomas was named among 22 U.S. Catholic colleges and universities recommended by the Cardinal Newman Society, and one of the top 28 Catholic colleges and universities worldwide. The 2014 edition of “The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College” features UST in its fourth time to be ranked by the Society for fidelity, excellence and the ability to help families navigate the college search and transition from high school to college.

Among the key points for UST’s recognition in the Newman Guide are the University’s strong Catholic identity influenced by the Basilian Fathers, the core curriculum focused on theology and philosophy, and Catholicism promoted through lecture series. 

“The University of St. Thomas’s inclusion in the 2014 Cardinal Newman Guide recognizes St. Thomas’s sustained and energetic commitment to authentic Catholic education, which provides academically rigorous programs to prepare students for today’s professional careers, and a formation in ethical leadership and social responsibility,” Dr. Dominic Aquila, vice president of Academic Affairs, said.

The Guide is a unique resource for parents and students seeking a faithful Catholic education. It features university profiles and several essays to help families better understand the search for a strong Catholic college. It is the culmination of more than four years of research and interviews. The colleges profiled are recommended for strong Catholic identity and cover a wide range of institutions in terms of history, size, location and academic focus.

“The Cardinal Newman Guide’s endorsement of The University of St. Thomas affirms the results of recent surveys, which show that families choose St. Thomas because its academic programs prepare students to succeed professionally and reach the full potential intellectually, spiritually, and ethically,” Aquila said.

The Guide features profiles of the 28 recommended institutions, including information on academics, residence life, student activities and spiritual life. The profiles are updated after extensive campus visits and/or interviews with faculty, staff, administrators, students and alumni.

“The Cardinal Newman guide accents St. Thomas’ Catholic and Basilian advantage, which ensures an education that integrates faith and reason, and a concern for all the aspects of students’ well-being and authentic development as leaders of faith and character,” Aquila said.
