History
  St. Thomas University was founded in 1961 as Biscayne College by the order of the Augustinian Friars. The college was

accepted as a member of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and first accredited by the Commission on Colleges

in 1968. 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 Miamiwhere 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.
  The St. Thomas University School of Law is one of only two accredited Catholic law schools south of Georgetown University

’s School of Law in Washington, DC. The School of Law at St. Thomas was fully accredited by the American Bar Association in

February 1995, and offers the Juris Doctor degree (J.D.).
  St. Thomas has given its graduates the confidence and skills necessary for success in a variety of fields. Among notable

graduates are: Alex Penelas, the former Mayor of Miami-Dade County, Andy Elisburg, Vice President of Operations for the Miami

Heat; Christina Fernandez,
  Chief Marshall for the Southern Region U.S. Marshals Service; and John Dooner, CEO of Interpublic Group of Companies.
