Saint Leo University 40th Anniversary of Educating Those Who Serve Our Nation

782
-1

Published on

In the shadow of the Vietnam conflict, when few education options were available to members of the armed forces, military leaders presented Saint Leo College with an opportunity. Bring college courses and degree programs to highly mobile service men and women challenged to complete their education while on active duty.

It was a request that gave Saint Leo a new way to fulfill its mission by serving the educational needs of those who serve our nation.

The college’s response was an educational experiment that started with 176 students at the Avon Park Bombing Range and 13 at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida.

Since then, thousands of students from all branches of military service, veterans, and their families have earned degrees at Saint Leo.

More than 5,000 men and women of the armed forces are enrolled in Saint Leo degree programs. The university operates 17 education centers on military bases in seven states and serves military students worldwide through the Center for Online Learning.

Saint Leo is known today as one of America’s largest and most committed providers of higher education to the U.S. military.

Beginning on Veterans Day in 2012 and concluding on Veterans Day 2013, Saint Leo University marked this milestone with a year-long celebration of its proud educational partnership with the military.

From a military speaker series, to monthly screenings of military films, the anniversary year included special programs and events at University Campus and centers nationwide.
