President's Welcome

I am pleased to welcome you to Mount Marty College and to invite you to explore our website. Mount Marty College was founded in 1936 by the Benedictine Sisters of the Sacred Heart Monastery who continue to sponsor the College. Today, Mount Marty College remains true to its Benedictine foundations serving all who wish to continue their education in a liberal arts environment that focuses on holistic education and service learning. The core values of our College: Awareness of God, Community, Hospitality and Life-long Learning are embraced in ways that encourage each individual to continually develop intellectually, ethically and spiritually. Our educational philosophy carries our students far beyond the classroom and places our graduates among the most qualified applicants for their chosen career paths. Alumni who are leaders in fields of nursing, medicine & health sciences, education, arts, and business attest to the success of Mount Marty College in preparing individuals for life-long opportunities.
