Be Bold
In Supporting the Red and Gold

Three students walk on campus at University of St. Thomas in Houston, TexasGoodness. Discipline. Knowledge. These values light our path as boldly today as they did in 1947 when our founding Basilian Fathers conceived them. By supporting the University of St. Thomas through the Office of University Advancement, you are supporting a long and fearless tradition of academic excellence and holistic learning.  

Our Celts reflect the diversity and inclusivity of our great city of Houston – a melting pot of promise, ambition and determination. Your investments are transformative for our students, but they are also gifts to society. Through your gifts, you inspire a bolder, brighter future for today’s Celts – the leaders of tomorrow.
