We aspire to change the faces of leadership in science, tech, engineering, and math—to better reflect the communities these fields serve. While we have always served women at St. Kateʼs, we realize that we need to do more to attract, retain, graduate and place BIPOC women in STEM positions so they can help lead our country and our world toward inclusive solutions because we know that diverse teams produce better outcomes.
The Future Is Katies
St. Catherine University educates women to lead and influence so that they may use their passion, energy, and intellect to change the world. For over 115 years, we have championed the transformative nature of a women-centered, Catholic, liberal arts education focused on social justice.
Today, St. Kate’s arrives at a pivotal moment, our path clear before us. Through LEAD & INFLUENCE: The Campaign for the Next Level of Excellence, we will realize our full potential and ignite the spirit of St. Catherine in new generations of students.
Together, we can lead and influence the future.
Steeped in reverence, Our Lady of Victory Chapel is a timeless sanctuary at the heart of St. Catherine University — and St. Paul. More than a beautiful landmark, the Chapel is on the National Register of Historic Places.
As we approach its 100th anniversary in 2024, this architecturally stunning monument requires critical updates to protect its physical integrity and conduct repairs. Through this campaign, $5 million of donations to “Our Place” will support these careful updates.
Investments in the Chapel’s preservation will sustain its legacy as a gathering space for another 100 years.
We are honored by and deeply appreciative of the generosity of these donors.
