USM Founders & Sponsors
The University of Saint Mary is shaped by the educational mission of the university’s founders and sponsors: the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth.
“In all our ministries we see Christian education as one of the great acts of charity: serving others at the fullest points of their needs and ministering to their need to know and come to the truth, to be opened to the good and the beautiful, to understand the past, to confront and help shape the future, to be called to justice, to be more fully and completely human and Christian.”
— Constitution of the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth
