Preserve and Renew Our Campus

St. Catherine University is blessed with one of the most beautiful campuses in the nation, from our leafy quad to the historic Our Lady of Victory Chapel. It’s our turn to ensure that the heart of this enchanting campus stays lively and strong for generations to come.

Through the LEAD & INFLUENCE: The Campaign for the Next Level of Excellence, we will: 

  • Create science and technology spaces that reflect our excellence. Renovations to Mendel—including flexible faculty research space and planned virtual reality anatomy and physiology labs—will provide spaces commensurate with our reputational excellence in the sciences and allow us to be competitive in our recruitment of talented students interested in science and technology.  

  • Restore and update Our Lady of Victory Chapel. This historically significant and beautiful community gathering place remains the perfect expression of our mission. As it approaches its 100th anniversary, we will preserve and update it with care and attention, making sure it remains a core aspect of the St. Catherine University experience for generations to come. We will invest in the Chapel’s physical integrity, restoring pews and making repairs to the roof, ceiling, and lighting and electrical systems.
