Culture

To an outsider, our picturesque campuses, with Mankato-Kasota Stone buildings that are prevalent in St. Thomas' architecture, might seem quiet, perhaps even sedate. But nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, it's a crucible of intellectual activity, teaching, knowledge creation, learning, and scholarship. In this environment, results matter, and creativity flourishes within our various schools, colleges, and divisions.

Become a Part of a Community at St. Thomas

St. Thomas is more than an institution of higher learning. It is a community of diverse people. The majority of the students, faculty, and staff are more diverse in age, race, ethnicity, nationality, experience and world view than you would be likely to find almost anywhere else.

Despite this diversity of experience and worldview, St. Thomas employees are united by a culture that strives for excellence, while at the same time supporting the needs of community members and their families. Community members also share a set of institutional values that both attracts and nurtures talent. Our culture is characterized by collaborative decision making within a community that fosters open and consultative communication.
