A St. Thomas engages a young scholar

All for the Common Good

You change lives by blessing bold goals.


“I seek no backward voyage across the sea of time; I will ever press forward. I believe that God intends the present to be better than the past, and the future to be better than the present.”
– St. Thomas founder, Archbishop John Ireland

The University of St. Thomas proudly educates students to be morally responsible leaders who think critically, act wisely, and work skillfully to advance the common good. We invite you to join us in our efforts to help St. Thomas students follow their dreams, who in turn, use what they learn to support their communities. Good things happen when we care about and invest in one another!
