Learning support when you need it
At SLU, your education isn't limited to the classroom. As a first-year student, you can expect innovative programs to help your successful transition into the university. New students are grouped into Learning Communities, which provide creative academic support.
You will be encouraged to challenge your thinking and develop strong answers. As a major research institution, we are dedicated to teaching you how to think logically, argue pointedly and express yourself clearly. SLU is also one of only eight Catholic universities with a high or very-high research distinction. Throughout our university and surrounding communities, we have a shared value of supporting the common good. SLU created these values to encourage staff and students to adopt the highest standards of conduct for both personal and professional practice.
