The Call Toward Tomorrow Goals and Metrics

The five priorities and eighteen goals of the planning process, and some of the metrics that will be used to measure our success.

Celt Innovation Competition

In the spirit of building a fearless culture of positive change and to better serve our students and community, I would like to begin a process for investing in the innovative ideas of our exceptional Celt community (faculty and staff).

Introducing Faith Delehanty

The Call Toward Tomorrow goals were recently announced at UST’s inaugural Opening Day celebration. Those goals represent the hard work and collaboration of many Celts from across our campus and extended community.

Mass of the Holy Spirit – September 11

I hope you will join me as our community comes together for our annual Mass of the Holy Spirit next Tuesday, September 11 at 12:30 p.m. in Jerabeck. As many of you know, this is an annual tradition during which we invoke the Holy Spirit to guide us as an academic community.

World Youth Day Cross

This Friday from 8 until 9:15 a.m., our campus community will host the World Youth Day Cross in the Chapel of St. Basil. Along with the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, we are one of two stops the cross will make in Texas on its eventual way down to Panama City for World Youth Day in January.

Welcome to Fall 2018!

For a great many of you, today is your first day at UST. I am pleased to say that we are welcoming the largest class in the history of this great university.
