Campus image of University of Saint Mary

University of Saint Mary has a strong academic history as a leader in liberal arts education dating back to 1923, when the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, Kansas established Saint Mary College, a two-year institution for young women. The college was an outgrowth of the need to expand educational offerings beyond the high school level at St. Mary's Female Academy, which the sisters established in 1859. Today, USM offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs both at its campus locations in Kansas and online, and is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA).*

Our programs are grounded in the liberal arts tradition of providing students with the strong decision-making and critical skills required to thrive in the workplace, while coursework and curricula also emphasize the practical applications of skills and knowledge. The University of Saint Mary is known for creating graduates with the ability to lead organizations and contribute to their communities in ways that benefit society as a whole—an essential element of our mission. We have received national recognition from The Princeton Review, which has named the University of Saint Mary a "Best Midwestern College" for the past five consecutive years.
