School of Graduate Studies and Research

President's Welcome

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the University of the Incarnate Word, a Catholic institution that strives to provide students with a top-notch educational experience by fostering excellence in a context of faith. Dr. Louis Agnese Jr.

We are grounded in the strength of our heritage, which we received from the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, the Congregation that founded the university in 1881.

Incarnate Word welcomes people of diverse backgrounds in the belief that their respectful interaction advances the discovery of truth, mutual understanding, self-realization and the common good in our increasingly complex society.

Graduate school is an opportunity to enhance and enrich your academic career and UIW is here to ensure your success. UIW features small classes providing an optimal learning environment; professors who know their students by name; and most importantly, spiritual growth and awareness by living the Mission of the university.

The five tenets of the Incarnate Word Mission are faith, truth, innovation, service and education. Through these tenets UIW offers a personal touch to each student that
enters its doors and through this personal attention, close-knit and supportive environment you too can discover your gifts and truly realize that the “The Universe is Yours.™”
