Centers of Excellence Connect Students to Global Thought Leaders
St. Edward's University offers both the "student first" rewards of a liberal arts college and wider opportunities typically found at a larger university. This dynamic approach immerses you in knowledge inspired by diverse subjects and viewpoints. The university's five Centers of Excellence allow you to engage with a world full of challenges and conflicts and to pursue interests far beyond campus.
Each of the Centers of Excellence concentrates on a specific mission, inviting top thinkers, writers and policy makers from across the globe to speak and debate on campus. These thought leaders contribute to rich, intellectual classroom experiences and cultivate study abroad, consulting and other experiential learning opportunities.
