Alumni in action: Teaching minds and touching hearts
With more than 42,000 alumni, you might be surprised where, and how often, you’ll run into a Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota graduate. Many of them the university calls “alumni in action” — alumni who are living the Saint Mary’s mission of service and leadership, transforming others’ lives and making a positive difference in their communities and beyond.
In honor of Saint Mary’s Centennial, the university is gathering and publishing the stories of many of these volunteers, leaders, educators, healers and visionaries whom Saint Mary’s University is proud to call alumni.
