Special Projects

At Saint Leo University, we often undertake special projects to best serve the needs of our university community. These may include new ways to recognize our donors, events for honoring students and alumni, additional buildings to accommodate our students’ needs, and fundraisers for specific causes. Below you will find our current initiatives.


Saint Leo University Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies

CCJSEstablished in 1998, the mission of the Saint Leo University Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies (CCJS) is to build mutual respect, understanding, and appreciation among Jews, Catholics, and all people of good will by providing opportunities for interfaith education and dialogue.

Inspired by Nostra Aetate, a declaration by the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) that provided a new and positive framework for the Catholic Church’s relationship with the Jewish people, CCJS facilitates theological study and dialogue among Christians and Jews at the scholarly level, in the classroom, and in the local community.

“Interreligious dialogue is a necessary condition for peace in the world, and so it is a duty for Christians as well as other religious communities” – Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium 250
