                       George E. Martin, PhD
                       President
                       Since becoming the 23rd president of St. Edward’s University on July 1, 1999, George E. Martin, PhD, has led the
                       university’s collaborative effort to attain national recognition as one of the best small universities in the country. That effort
                       has already achieved results. U.S. News & World Report has ranked St. Edward’s among the top 25 master’s-granting
                       universities in the West for the past five years — recognition bestowed on only three other institutions in Texas.
                       In the early days of his presidency, Martin introduced a vision and a set of seven strategic priorities focusing on student




                                                                                                                                                            MEET THE TEAM
                       enrollment, faculty recruitment and retention, curricular and co-curricular programs, new facilities, technology development,
                       fundraising, and marketing. These strategic priorities, combined with an ambitious master plan, define the future direction
of the university.
Progress toward these goals has been tremendous. Traditional undergraduate enrollment has grown by 60 percent since 1999 while maintaining
a low student-faculty ratio. The university’s exceptional faculty has increased by 47 percent. New facilities, such as Trustee Hall and the 65,000-
square-foot John Brooks Williams Natural Sciences Center–North Building, have elevated learning with the latest instructional technology. Two
new residence halls — Basil Moreau Hall and Jacques Dujarié Hall — have changed the heart of campus with feature-rich student living.
As the campus evolves to meet the needs of a growing student body, President Martin is committed to ensuring the university stays true to its Holy
Cross mission: to deliver a personalized, transformative educational experience in a diverse and supportive community.
Martin says the role of president is not one of power but of possibility. He leads by listening, thinking, sharing energy and ideas, and encouraging
creativity within the culture of the institution.

Born: Jan. 10, 1944, Brooklyn, N.Y.
Education: Bachelor’s degree from St. John’s University; master’s and doctoral degrees from Fordham University
Involvements: President Martin volunteers his time at a number of important civic and artistic organizations, including the Library Advisory
Board and the boards of the United Way Capital Area and Ballet Austin. He is also a board member for the Council of Independent Colleges, the
Independent Colleges and Universities of Texas, the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities, the Texas Independent College Fund, and
Saint Mary’s College. A member of the Texas Campus Compact, Martin has served as conference president for the NCAA Division II Heartland
Conference.
Career highlights: Martin entered faculty service in 1969 as a member of the St. Peter’s College Political Science department and became
chairman in 1976. In 1985, he was named academic dean of St. Peter’s College and served in that role until 1991, when he became academic
vice president. He was inaugurated as president of St. Edward’s University in October 1999.
