With our bicentennial year concluded, we turn our focus to the future. Fueled by our distinguished history and buoyed by the remarkable work of our students, faculty and health care professionals, SLU has launched Accelerating Excellence, a $500 million fundraising campaign designed to propel it to national prominence as a leading research university.
This historic effort aims to enable that bold vision by providing funds to strategically build on our key strengths:
Our next chapter will build on our legacy of academic excellence coupled with the character and compassion inherent in the Jesuit tradition. Across all schools and colleges of the University, Accelerating Excellence will enable us to make investments in cutting-edge technology, state-of-the-art facilities and – most importantly – world-class faculty to become the academic powerhouse we know we can be.
Providing capable students with access to SLU's life-changing education and experience, regardless of their financial circumstances, is an essential part of our Jesuit identity. We are committed to making SLU a possibility for as many students as we can. Accelerating Excellence: The Campaign for Saint Louis University will expand our ability to provide access to SLU’s world-class education for accomplished students from all socio-economic backgrounds.
As ever-evolving disciplines, education in the health sciences requires state-of-the-art technology and continually updated facilities. It’s essential that SLU not only keep pace, but lead the way in expanding the boundaries of medical knowledge and application. Accelerating Excellence: The Campaign for Saint Louis University will allow SLU to invest in infrastructure and technology to accelerate discovery and enhance our ability to compete for external funding across all health sciences schools and research divisions.
As an essential component in SLU’s success, our business education programs are a key part of our drive to elevate SLU’s national profile. With funding from Accelerating Excellence: The Campaign for Saint Louis University, we will create an innovative learning environment that challenges students to think creatively and strategically in a technology-intensive and innovation-based global economy.
Our journey to become the best Catholic university in the country will harness the power of athletics to elevate our reputation and increase our visibility nationwide. Accelerating Excellence: The Campaign for Saint Louis University will enable us to strengthen SLU’s athletics via investment in the advanced facilities, innovative support programs and trailblazing coaches that an elite program demands.
