Formerly the College of St. Catherine, St. Kate’s was founded in St. Paul in 1905 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, whose social justice mission of loving God and neighbor without distinction anchors our commitment to respond to the needs of the time.  The University is named for St. Catherine of Alexandria, the 4th-century Egyptian philosopher, who suffered martyrdom for her faith.

St. Kate’s is a nationally recognized university with the College for Women at its core which is one of the largest Catholic colleges for women in the nation. It is one of the most comprehensive Catholic universities in the United States, offering access to an education in over 80 academic programs ranging from professional certificates to post-graduate degrees in the liberal arts and professional programs.  In 2009, St. Kate’s moved from college to university status, retaining its tradition of academic excellence while expanding its structure to three colleges and three schools. The three schools are the School of Humanities, Arts and Sciences (SHAS), School of Business, and the Henrietta Schmoll School of Health (HSSH), each of which serves students in the College for Women, the Graduate College, and the College for Adults. 

The University’s commitment to Inclusive Excellence encourages students across schools and colleges to incorporate global learning and experiences into their education. St. Kate’s is committed to making Inclusive Excellence a reality and has identified “Drive a Culture of Inclusive Excellence” as one of its six strategic priorities. Initiatives include the expansion of equity and inclusion-centered curricular content in specific courses and in each program of study, new recruitment strategies and training around elimination of bias, and retention efforts targeted for faculty and staff of color using professional development opportunities and resources.  Finally, the plan has an explicit focus on the articulation and development of the essential skills students must possess to succeed in diverse and inclusive workplaces and communities and defining how the educational program and co-curricular student experience will foster these outcomes.
