St. Edward’s is a dynamic Catholic, liberal arts university where teaching, learning, leadership and service come together to contribute to a better world. For more than a decade, we’ve been named one of “America’s Best Colleges” by U.S. News & World Report. Located in the thriving city of Austin, Texas, with 21 international partner universities, our impact extends across the globe.
