Saint Martin's University is a private, liberal arts-focused university on a beautiful 380-acre wooded campus in Lacey, Washington - in the heart of the Pacific Northwest. Founded in 1895, Saint Martin’s is rooted in a Catholic, Benedictine philosophy of education that focuses on four core values: Faith, Reason, Service and Community.
Saint Martin's graduates are known not only for their excellent academic and professional preparation but also for their strong commitment to serving others - Saints live with heart.
Offering 24 undergraduate programs and seven masters degrees, Saint Martin's prides itself on providing a values-based education complemented by small class sizes, faculty members as academic advisers and a commitment to the individual student. That commitment extends to affordability: On average, Saint Martin's awards $15 million annually in scholarships and grants. 100 percent of students who demonstrate financial need receive aid.
With a student body of 1,349 undergraduate students and a student-to-faculty ratio of 11:1, our students benefit from close personal attention and classes taught by faculty members, not teaching assistants. From engineering and education, business to social work, Saint Martin's students prepare for success by preparing to make a difference.
