The Saint Leo Parent and Family Council is a group of dedicated parent and family members who significantly assist the University as we strive to provide excellence in the undergraduate experience.
The Council represents the needs of undergraduate students and families and supports development of new programs and services that bolster the partnership between family members and the university by focusing efforts towards networking and fundraising on behalf of Saint Leo.
Members of the Saint Leo Parent and Family Association serve throughout their student’s undergraduate experience as long as they meet the following purpose and criteria:
Provide insight from the parent/family perspective to the senior leadership of Saint Leo University through twice per year meetings and special occasion VIP receptions. Presentations will be provided by senior leadership at each meeting regarding current initiatives, campus life, and university updates.
Serve as parent/family leaders on campus and in their communities for initiatives benefiting current students including priority areas such as Career Services, the Wellness Center and others.
Demonstrate a pattern of generosity through sharing their time, talent and treasure, and encouraging other parents and families to do the same through a minimum annual gift to the University of $2500; connections to corporate and/or community leadership that benefits Saint Leo University students (i.e. job opportunities; campus speakers); and attending in person or via technology at least one of the campus meetings per year.
