Our Educational and Spiritual Foundation

The University of Saint Mary is a four-year Catholic liberal arts university founded by the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth in 1923.

We offer daytime undergraduate and doctoral classes at our main campus in Leavenworth, online classes, and accelerated undergraduate degree-completion and graduate classes in the evening at our Overland Park Campus.

We are known for our personalized approach to learning with dedicated faculty and staff who care about our students’ success in the classroom and in life.

The Princeton Review has repeatedly named the University of Saint Mary a “Best Midwestern College*” every year since 2005. The distinction is based on meeting lofty standards of academic excellence and feedback from students, parents, educators, and Princeton Review staff.

Our education is values-based and grounded in moral principles. Thousands of our graduates have gone on to become strong, ethical leaders, effective decision makers, and consistent problem solvers, as well as good people who are interested, involved, and invested in their communities.
