We Invite You to Join Us
Since our founding in 1885 by the Congregation of Holy Cross, 23 presidents have led St. Edward’s University, shaping the foundation for our continuing rise as a premier private university. Each president has placed the university’s Catholic Holy Cross mission at the forefront of their leadership, building upon our fundamental values of academic excellence, social justice, service to others and transformative educational opportunities for students from all walks of life.
We are excited to formally welcome
our 24th president
