Dedication to research and scholarly activity permeates the air at Saint Martin's. Our faculty write books, publish and travel the world as Fulbright Scholars. They work side-by-side with students on real-world projects, cultivating curiosity and care. Our students develop academic investigations of their own, including a senior capstone project under the mentorship of their faculty advisor. If accepted, they present at our annual Scholars Day conference. Some have gone on to be published. Even our staff present at professional conferences and complete advanced degrees. Our commitment to lifelong learning provides fertile ground for scholastic achievement and an enduring call to inquiry.

Our achievements

Awards and accomplishments

From presentations to publications and Ph.D.s, our faculty, staff and students excel at taking their passions, their work and their lives into the world. We honor their achievements and share their success with you.


Scholarship is often revealed through our ability to inquire, collect, analyze and synthesize information--then share it with others, offering a fresh perspective and new insights. Our community embraces this process not only for scholastic achievement, but as a mode of self-discovery, self-expression and colleagueship. We invite you to get to know us through the books and papers we publish.
