The mind will not be cultivated at the expense of the heart.

Where these two things — the mind and the heart — meet, something truly remarkable can be found. 

Our Interfaith Community

Rooted in its Catholic, Holy Cross heritage, St. Edward's University supports students of all faiths and backgrounds. Everyone is welcomed and encouraged to grow in their own beliefs and values, supported by Campus Ministry and an accepting community.

That can mean exploring your own faith. (Yes, we’re Catholic. You don’t have to be.) We’re the sort of community where the Muslim Student Association and Hillel Toppers come together for an Eid Al Adha–Yom Kippur dinner, and nonreligious students join classmates of all faiths in celebrating human kindness.

It can mean deepening your knowledge of profoundly important issues. And it can mean finding an outlet for your compassion, maybe through a Service Break Experience in which you live simply for a week with peers, serving a community in need, such as at-risk youth in Los Angeles or an orphanage in India.

Whoever you are, whatever you are driven by — here, you’ll follow where your soul guides you.
