University of Saint Mary students, faculty, and staff gathered for the Centennial Kickoff on Sept. 14 around the Front Circle. The event followed Fall Convocation Liturgy, which introduced the Centennial theme: Educating with a Deeper Purpose. During the kickoff, more than 500 people enjoyed a picnic lunch, music, and yard games. Visit for more photos.

Since 1923, Saint Mary has embodied the pioneering and ambitious spirit of our founders – the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth. A century later, we are proud to honor our storied past and pave the way for a bright future.

Join us throughout 2023 for a series of events 100 years in the making!
