At UIW, we offer nearly 80 undergraduate and graduate programs of study in nearly every field. With a low student-to-faculty ratio of 14:1, we’re able to design each of our programs to be highly interactive. Here, students engage – really engage – in their education. They work on real projects – collaborating with real professionals. They participate in internships – sometimes two or three. They do original research – work normally associated with graduate students. They serve in the community – putting their academic skills to work. They come to UIW, they acquire knowledge, and they gain invaluable experience as well. It gives them perspective. It gives them confidence. It gives them an edge.

The Word is Engagement. Programs Of Distinction With its exceptional academic offerings, UIW has distinguished itself among the nation’s best colleges and universities. 4HESchool of PharmacyISTHE ONLYPRIVATESCHOOLOFPHARMACY IN4EXAS

Access To A World Of Information Technology is an integral part of a UIW education. All of our students carry mobile computing technology, whether a laptop, a Dell netbook or an iPad. We are a fully wired – and wireless – campus. In addition, we provide our students a suite of applications to run on their Blackberry or iPhone, such as our own video channel (keep up with activities), our own sports channel (check out Cardinals scores), a library app (look up books), and more. Plus, over 70% of our instructors teach their courses using Blackboard, a combination of in-class and online learning. This is 21st century technology. This is a 21st century education.

“We’re proud to be a Catholic university that welcomes to its community persons of diverse religious and cultural backgrounds in the belief that their respectful interaction advances the discovery of truth, mutual understanding, self-realization and the common good.” DR.

In 1881, the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word founded UIW, and today we are the largest Catholic university in the Southwest. Ours is a Catholic tradition, but here, we lift up and celebrate all faiths. Our hope and our Mission is that, whatever your faith, you will come here and grow in it. This sense of mission is inherent in us. It began long ago when the Sisters began building hospitals and schools, and it continues today with our passion for community service and social justice. While the world is changing to care for others and help the less fortunate, we always have. It is not something we have to try to do; it is who we are. And if you come here, this deep sense of faith, mission and service will become a part of you.
