Message from the President


On behalf of the Saint Leo University community, I thank you for taking the time to learn more about our dynamic university and its innovative online degree programs.

Founded in 1889, Saint Leo is the oldest Catholic university in Florida and a pioneer in online education. Since 1998, our online programs have been providing opportunities for busy working adults such as yourself to complete their college degrees by offering flexibility and convenience combined with rigor and relevance.

That tradition of innovation continues today. We remain committed to providing a learning environment that is challenging, yet supportive of your personal needs and goals.

At Saint Leo, you will find a university where professors, advisors, student services staff and support staff are all dedicated to a common goal: your academic success.

In all things, we are guided by – and remain faithful to – our core values: community, respect, integrity, responsible stewardship, excellence and personal development.

Thank you for considering Saint Leo University. It is my sincere hope that you grant us the privilege of becoming your university. I pledge to you the support of the entire university community and wish you tremendous success.


Dr. William J. Lennox, Jr.
