New Names Adopted at Saint Leo and New Faculty Appointed
The academic degree programs and areas of study have broadened at Saint Leo University.
Saint Leo University has reimagined its three major academic units, and each is now called a college rather than a school: the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Education and Social Services, and the Donald R. Tapia College of Business.
The change to the use of college reflects the plurality of subject areas taught within each of Saint Leo's academic divisions, as well as the current prominence of graduate degree programs among the mix of new offerings from Saint Leo. Also, the term "school" is more typically used to describe an academic unit devoted to a single field of study. Consequently, university leaders decided it was time to shift to the more comprehensive term "colleges" to keep pace with the broadening array of programs offered and contemplated in the future.
There are new names on the faculty roster as well. The College of Arts and Sciences has made two appointments.
Both work from University Campus, where classes are now underway.
