A Remarkable Year in Review

Margaret Kasimatis, Provost & Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs:

Over the past year, many have heard me describe Saint Mary’s as a College on the move that hasn’t forgotten where it came from. For me, this observation is a recognition of this university’s remarkable capacity to adapt and advance throughout its more than 150-year history as a leading institution of Catholic higher education.

Today, it is evident that the exceptional educational experience at Saint Mary’s College of California—grounded in our Lasallian, Catholic, and liberal arts traditions—continues to have a transformative impact on our students. 

The following highlights from the 2018–19 academic year showcase the myriad ways Saint Mary’s builds on its Lasallian, Catholic, and liberal arts traditions in distinctive and innovative ways to achieve academic excellence.
