    Upholding a Tradition of Liberal Arts at St. Kate's

    In fall 1937, St. Kate’s became the first Catholic college or university in the United States, and the third Minnesota institution, to be awarded a Phi Beta Kappa chapter. As the nation’s oldest and most prestigious undergraduate honors organization, Phi Beta Kappa recognizes achievement in the liberal arts.

    St. Kate’s Gamma Chapter members hold public events, initiate new members and support the liberal arts and sciences and students who study them.

The Dean’s List is assembled after the deadline for submission of final term grades, so students with incomplete grades may not be considered for that term. If you have questions about the Dean’s List, contact the Office of Academic Affairs at academicaffairs@stkate.edu.
