When women do well, the world does well. St. Catherine has educated women to lead and influence since its founding in 1905. We take women’s experiences and knowledge seriously. Seeking a world in which all people* have opportunities for authentic lives, we educate women and men to work together toward a socially responsible world free of sexism, racism, and other forms of injustice. Our learning environments are women-centered in purpose and approach. We include women's scholarship and expertise in course content and question the absence of women’s voices. We empower all students* to contribute to society and challenge barriers to opportunity, both overt and subtle. This enriches the lives not only of women, but of all humanity.
*across age, racial and ethnic identity, economic circumstance, religious affiliation, gender identity, sexuality, and physical ability.
