St. Thomas University is a private, coeducational institution of higher learning sponsored by the Archdiocese of Miami. With a student population of 2,500, the University emphasizes value-oriented education for traditional undergraduate students as well as for graduate, law and non-traditional students.
Reflecting the multicultural population of Miami-Dade County, the student body of St. Thomas University has become more diverse over the past decade; today it is more than 50% Hispanic and more than 20% African American. One of the University's greatest strengths and major contributions is its ability to attract and graduate these students. St. Thomas University has been ranked in the top 100 schools in the nation for Hispanics by Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education magazine for undergraduate and graduate degrees.
St. Thomas University was founded in 1961 as Biscayne College by the order of the Augustinian Friars. Through continued growth and development, Biscayne College earned university status in 1984 after the addition of 10 Master degree programs and the opening of the School of Law. The University came under the sponsorship of the Archdiocese of Miami in 1988, conferring upon St. Thomas the distinction of being the only Catholic Archdiocesan sponsored university in the State of Florida.
When university status was attained, the name of the institution was changed to St. Thomas University to reflect its Cuban heritage. The University traces its roots to the Universidad de Santo Tomas de Villanueva, founded in 1946 in Havana, Cuba, by American Augustinians with assistance from European Augustinians. When the Castro government expelled the Augustinians from Cuba in 1961, several of the American Augustinians came to Miami where they founded Biscayne College. Given their experience in Cuba, the University?s founders, and specifically its first president, who was vice rector of Villanueva, were intimately familiar with teaching students from different backgrounds. That commitment to student diversity continues strongly today. St. Thomas looks not only to Miami-Dade County for its student population, but also to Latin America, the Caribbean and beyond.
