St. Edward's Unversity
Having achieved the goal to become one of “America’s Best Colleges,” St. Edward's University, a Holy Cross, Catholic university, stands distinctively among the nation's esteemed liberal arts institutions.
St. Edward's ranks among the top five 'Up-and-Coming Universities' in the Western Region according to U.S. News & World Report.
The Congregation of Holy Cross began St. Edward's more than a century ago, encouraging students to think critically, act ethically, embrace diversity, strive for social justice and recognize their responsibility to the world community.
Today, St. Edward's draws more than ever from its founders' tradition of academic excellence and “whole person education,” preparing students — of all ages — for the opportunities and challenges of an interconnected world.
Rising to the demands of this new century, St. Edward’s is committed to extending its global reach. Our Strategic Plan 2015 guides us in developing more educational partnerships and portal campuses worldwide; growing the number of students who study abroad; utilizing the power of technology to enhance global learning; and cultivating a stronger international community on our Austin campus.
