At the Donald R. Tapia College of Business, our mission is simple and straightforward: to provide a values-centered education that develops tomorrow’s business leaders.
With an emphasis on both individual responsibility and interconnectedness, we help shape our students into global citizens ready to contribute to society wherever they go—whether building sustainable tourism practices in Quito, Ecuador; winning a fully paid fellowship at Big Four accounting firm Ernst and Young; or enrolling in Harvard Law School.
As the largest Catholic business College in the United States, we welcome more than 8,000 business students enrolled through our online programs, and we operate 15 education centers across the country, as well as our Tampa-area main campus—home to our state-of-the-art, LEED Gold-certified College of Business building.
Our accredited programs at Tapia College of Business are distinct in their student-centered teaching, future-paced research, entrepreneurial leadership, and close relationships with alumni and community leaders.
College of Education and Social Services
At the College of Education and Social Services, we couple a transformative liberal arts education with highly specialized training in the education and social service fields.
As one of the oldest Catholic universities in Florida, our goal is to foster our Benedictine values of intellectual curiosity and community-minded integrity. Through close faculty mentorships, field internships, and applied learning experiences, we prepare students for careers in education, social work, criminal justice, and human services.
Our professors remain active in their respective fields as researchers and practitioners, and their innovation earns Saint Leo industry-leading recognition. Our undergraduate and graduate social work programs are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).
Because we understand the changing needs of today's students, we provide options such as evening and weekend courses as well as online offerings.
