About

History

Saint John Baptist de La Salle knew that education was the way forward; the path to equality and progress. Today, more than 330 years later, as the world wrestles with the role of higher education, our resolve in our mission has never been stronger or our ideals more relevant. Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota is more necessary than ever.

Education

Saint Mary's, as a Lasallian Catholic institution, traces its origins to a priest and educational innovator of 17th century France, Saint John Baptist de La Salle. Born in 1651, De La Salle began a new system of Christian schools in which the teachers assist parents in the educational, ethical, and religious formation of their children.

Research

Located on 100 acres along the Cascade Creek in northwest Rochester, Cascade Meadow Wetlands and Environmental Science Center features formal and informal learning and event spaces indoors and outdoors. Our mission is to establish the center as a regional resource for environmental education with an initial focus on energy, water, and wetlands.

Career
