Saint Teresa Leadership & Service Institute for Women

Nurturing, encouraging & celebrating women

In the tradition of courageous women throughout history, the Saint Teresa Institute fosters, within an academic setting, a spiritual, social, and cultural environment through which the leadership potential of women is nurtured in a community that celebrates personal integrity, excellence, joy, and service.

Students in the Saint Teresa Leadership and Service Institute live in a shared community in the heart of Saint Mary’s University. The Institute is a living and learning co-curricular program. The women gain many of the benefits of all women’s education while nested in the broader co-educational Saint Mary’s community. Select general education courses are offered in women’s focused classrooms, and the students in the Institute complete a six credit course series in leadership and service.
