Diversity on Campus
A haven for diversity, St. Thomas University has students enrolled from more than 70 countries and many different ethnic backgrounds.
The University defines itself as an institution that values diversity. This is reflected in the importance and pride the University places in a student body that includes a balanced number of men and women, and includes people from a variety of racial, ethnic, socio-economic, religious, and national identities.
The University recognizes the traditional liberal arts goal of expanding students intellectual horizons by exposing all students both to a diversity of cultures and to an analysis of the experience of being different.
The Office of Student Affairs provides technical support and assistance to multicultural organizations on campus. These organizations enable students to explore, maintain, and strengthen their cultural identities, while maintaining their connections to the life of the University through campus-wide activities.
The existing Multicultural Organizations were developed by groups of students who had the desire and saw a need for a group to support their common interests. The Office of Student Services is always open to new ideas in areas in which students see a need for greater community.
St. Thomas University welcomes you to our rapidly growing international student population. An education from St. Thomas University provides unique cross-cultural and international experiences and background inside and outside of the classroom. You will have the opportunity to explore these perspectives at St. Thomas which brings together American and international students in an intimate, personal learning environment.
