Saint Martin's University in Lacey, Washington is one of 13 Benedictine colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, and the only one west of the Rocky Mountains. Established in 1895 by monks of the Roman Catholic Order of Saint Benedict, our identity as a university is rooted in our Catholic, Benedictine tradition. Saint Martin's is a member of the Independent Colleges of Washington.
Guided by the principles of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition, Saint Martin’s University endeavors to unite academic rigor and excellence with moral thought and social responsibility – higher education that seeks to serve and promote the common good – higher education that seeks to transform lives by grappling with issues of Faith, Reason, Service and Community. We come together, faculty, staff and students, to form a community of individuals who are learning to live a meaningful life. Saints think, pray, serve, play and live with heart.
