Mount Mary University

Mount Marty University is a small, Catholic liberal arts university in Southeast South Dakota. Based in Yankton, a historic city of 15,000 people, Mount Marty believes that the Benedictine values of awareness of God, community, hospitality, lifelong learning and service are fundamental to the daily lives of students, faculty and staff. U.S. News & World Report recognizes us as one of America’s Best Regional Midwest Colleges, and the Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC) reports us to be one of the Most Effective and Most Efficient private universities in the state of South Dakota. Although our university has received many honors, the true measure of our achievements is the success of our students as they go forth to serve others in their communities and the world. The Mount’s faith-based learning community inspires students to develop their strengths and passions personally and professionally.
