Teaching at St Edward's, a top liberal arts college

Teaching and Professional Growth

St. Edward’s takes pride in attracting top-achieving, dedicated faculty members. Our teachers enjoy a 13:1 student-faculty ratio, a diverse and highly engaged student body, and cutting-edge facilities. And they contribute new knowledge to their fields through innovative research and creative expression funded by prestigious government and foundation grants.

Showcasing your talents in and outside of the classroom is a way of life at St. Edward’s. As a faculty member, you’ll be encouraged to play a role in student organizations, faculty administration and curriculum development. You’ll also collaborate with your peers to foster the growth and education of our students, and mentor students as they transition to college life.

Our Center for Teaching Excellence supports and facilitates your continued professional growth through the exchange of ideas and resources about teaching and learning.

A Commitment to Diversity

St. Edward’s offers an academically challenging, globally informed education that empowers students to make a difference in their world. Inspired by our mission and the values of our Holy Cross founders, we are committed to making our private education available to students from all backgrounds, faiths and walks of life. We support this commitment to diversity in a number of ways:

  • Our students come from far and wide — 44 states and 51 countries — and represent a 43% minority enrollment. 
  • The St. Edward’s community embodies 40 faith traditions and takes part in more than 50 multicultural events on campus each year.  
  • We are a Hispanic Serving Institution with a 35% Hispanic enrollment. In 2013, St. Edward’s was recognized for having the highest graduation rate of any Hispanic-serving institution in the U.S. by The Chronicle of Higher Education. And Hispanic Magazine repeatedly names St. Edward’s among the “Best Schools for Hispanics.”
  • St. Edward’s is home to the nation’s longest, continuously running College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP). Since 1972, our program has provided a college education to more than 2,800 students from migrant farmworker families, covering almost their full cost of college.
  • The Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP) honored St. Edward’s as a recipient of its IHEP Institutional Champions of Access and Success Awards for successfully advancing strategies that increase opportunity, persistence and degree completion for low-income, first-generation, minority, adult, veteran, disabled and other underserved students.
  • The New York Times included St. Edward’s in its “Colleges of Many Colors” list.
