Who we are

Mount Mary University is a small, private all-women’s university that is focused on developing the whole person. We provide individual, hands-on support to each student in a tight-knit community and creative environment. Our social justice and mission-based focus empowers graduates to transform their communities and the world.


National recognition for graduating diverse and low-income students

The 2021 U.S. News and World Report’s ranking of best colleges recognizes Mount Mary for overall growth, and successful outcomes in graduating diverse and low-income students. These rankings underscore the university’s focus on equity for students, regardless of economic or first-generation status, or ethnicity.


In April 2020 Mount Mary achieved federal status as a Hispanic-Serving Institution. With one in four undergraduate students at Mount Mary identifying themselves as Hispanic, Mount Mary is one of only two colleges in Wisconsin to receive this designation.
