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.

Hurricane Emergency Scholarship Fund

In August and September 2017, much of our nation felt the wrath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Saint Leo is relieved and grateful that we weathered the hurricanes, but many of our students will feel the effects for months to come. In total, more than two dozen teaching locations and some 8,000 Saint Leo students were affected by the storms. Some students have been displaced, while others face financial hardship in repairing homes or replacing their possessions. Paying for their educations could be an added burden at this time.

Many of you have watched the news and wondered, How can I help? One way is to contribute to the newly created Hurricane Emergency Scholarship Fund. Donations to this fund will go directly to students’ tuition costs and help them stay at Saint Leo.

Can you lend a hand to those Saint Leo Lions in need?

Thanks to Donors Like You ...

Kirk Hall

In 2014, Saint Leo University broke ground on a new academic building that was subsequently named Kirk Hall, in honor of Dr. Arthur F. Kirk Jr., president emeritus. Thanks to generous donors, the construction was well funded, and the ribbon cutting was celebrated on October 15, 2015. Today, students study, learn, and collaborate in this state-of-the-art facility. We hope you enjoy this video.
