The U-Mary Difference
U-Mary offers many "big school" advantages without the drawback of "getting lost in the crowd." At U-Mary, you matter. Students, faculty, and even top administration know -- and care about -- who you are.
One of the core Benedictine values is "community." U-Mary is a community of learners that recognizes and respects diversity and the richness it brings to the college experience. We identify with the Christian, Catholic, and Benedictine tradition while welcoming individuals from all faiths who seek truth with a spirit of mutual respect and understanding. Each student is encouraged to participate in his or her religious, social, educational, and political communities and share his or her traditions as part of the U-Mary community. This promotes an environment where each individual may attain self-identity and self-realization and makes the University of Mary open to change.
Throughout its history, U-Mary's mission has been to respond to the needs of people in the region. As the university grows, it continues to explore new ways to provide outstanding religious, academic, and cultural opportunities that carry forth the vision of its founders and sponsors, the Sisters of Annunciation Monastery. We hope that you will join us and discover why at the University of Mary, "We have always measured our success by the success of our graduates."
