Recognized among the nation’s best Catholic colleges and as one of “America’s Best Colleges,” St. Edward's University stands distinctively as a top liberal arts institution, with partner universities in nine countries. The Congregation of Holy Cross founded St. Edward's more than a century ago, encouraging students to think critically, act ethically, embrace diversity, strive for social justice and recognize their responsibility to the world community. These traits, combined with challenging academic programs in the arts, sciences and humanities, distinguish a leading liberal arts university, and prepare students for success and deep personal fulfillment. Today, St. Edward's draws more than ever from its founders’ tradition of academic excellence and “whole person education,” inspiring and empowering students-of all ages-to embrace the opportunities and challenges of an interconnected world.
