This Change is Nothing New

At the University of St. Thomas, change has been in our DNA since Archbishop John Ireland founded a small, Catholic liberal arts college where faith and reason walked together.

As a Dl institution, those convictions continue to guide St. Thomas’ evolution into nationally recognized comprehensive, urban university.

Community and Character

With more than 2,000 volunteer hours, our student-athletes embraced opportunities to serve the common good during the 2022-23 school year. Teams built community playgrounds, assembled meal kits at Feed My Starving Children, sorted and packaged food at Second Harvest Heartland, read at local schools, hosted youth groups on and off campus, and raised awareness and funds for cancer research.
