Are you looking for an outstanding Catholic university that promotes strong academics and provides a close-knit, supportive community? We have three. 

Chaminade University of Honolulu, St. Mary’s University of San Antonio and the University of Dayton embody the Marianist spirit of educating the heart and mind to create learning that lasts and inspiring relationships that serve. The Association of Marianist Universities builds on a strong history of collaboration and common mission – and draws on the example of Blessed William Joseph Chaminade, founder of the Society of Mary – to create environments that let students thrive.







The only Catholic university in Hawaii, Chaminade University offers a rich educational environment with a dedicated, involved faculty, small class sizes and a safe, beautiful campus.


St. Mary’s University – the oldest Catholic university in Texas and the Southwest – is a nationally recognized liberal arts institution that provides students with personal attention and powerful academic programs.


Founded in 1850 on a 125-acre farm, today the University of Dayton is the largest private university in Ohio – and is recognized as a top-tier national research university with a student-centered learning environment.
