Saint Leo University is a Catholic, coeducational liberal arts university offering programs leading to the associate’s and baccalaureate degrees and the Master of Business Administration, Master of Education and Master of Criminal Justice degrees. Chartered on June 4, 1889, Saint Leo originated when the Florida legislature authorized the Order of St. Benedict of Florida. In 1973, the College responded to requests from the armed services to offer degree programs on military bases. Now, Saint Leo University is one of the largest providers of higher education to military-related personnel in the United States.
Fort Eustis Center
As Saint Leo’s first continuing education center outside of Florida, the Fort Eustis Center originally served Fort Eustis, Langley, Fort Lee and the Naval Amphibious Base (NAB), Norfolk, Virginia – all of which are now separate Saint Leo locations. In 1973, St. Leo University responded to requests from the armed services to offer degree programs on military bases. Now, Saint Leo University is one of the largest providers of higher education to military-related personnel in the United States.
To better serve the needs of Saint Leo students and the community, the University expanded course offerings significantly, especially in recent years, bringing more focus to business, criminology and psychology degree programs. The computer center also was upgraded, and instructors are continually recruited to teach the desired classes and provide caring assistance to the University’s students.
