Lead and Influence: The Campaign for the Next Level of Excellence
Students gather at Opening Celebration
Support and Connect Exceptional Students

St. Catherine University cultivates leaders who are grounded in reality and powered by values. Katies believe in their potential to make change because they are equipped with the insight and ability to influence not just individual outcomes, but also the systems and circumstances behind them. How do we help today’s students cultivate these abilities, and prepare them to step out into the world?

With your support of students through LEAD & INFLUENCE: The Campaign for the Next Level of Excellence, we will:

  • Expand need-based financial aid, allowing us to attract, support, and graduate the best students regardless of their financial means—and ensure they can take full advantage of our rich array of experiences.

  • Create an Office of Scholarly Engagement to consolidate research, fellowships, honors, global studies, and community work in a single place. Through this new office, we will extend high-impact programs and practices to help students across the University find their place in our community and our world and reap the rewards of a St. Kate’s education.

  • Create a compelling pathway to life beyond St. Kate’s that begins the day students set foot on campus. We will strengthen our alumni and employer professional network and enable more students to access paid internships, career readiness programming, and a stronger career development center.
