David A. Armstrong, J.D., President

President’s Welcome Message to St. Thomas University!

It is my privilege and pleasure to welcome you to the start of the fall 2018 academic year. As the new President of St. Thomas University, I am looking forward to a productive and exhilarating year as we strive to make further headway in realizing our vision as the Southeast’s leading Catholic University.

I have been entrusted with continuing the Catholic intellectual tradition, and the academic excellence of this university and enriching student life. In my short time, I have gained a deep respect for the university’s students, faculty and staff. And, I have enjoyed the beauty of this campus and the city of Miami.

As I begin my tenure, I encourage you to seize the various opportunities and programs STU has to offer inside and outside the classroom. From day one, our faculty and staff are preparing students to become lifelong leaders by instilling in them a passion to learn, a commitment to service, a dedication to ethics, and enthusiasm for continuous personal growth.

At STU, we are more than a university, we are a close-knit community with a mission to provide a value-based education that prepares its students for a successful life and career. The St. Thomas graduate isn’t just an alumnus, they are leaders.
We graduate leaders for life.

I encourage you to meet everyone in our Bobcat family, and see and experience the opportunities, activities, and facilities that STU offers.

God Bless and Go Bobcats!

David A. Armstrong, J.D.
