Learning support when you need it

SLU takes an innovative approach to learning. We go a step further than the classroom with experiential Learning Communities that promote creativity and give academic support to your degree program. Our 9:1 student-to-faculty ratio enhances your education. Study alongside other international students, domestic students, faculty and staff as you dive into exciting research. Pursue an internship with one of the many start-ups local to St. Louis. Learn from your favorite professor-turned-mentor as you shape your future at SLU. Develop your unique network—a special blend of faculty, advisors, mentors and peers who make up your community of support. You don’t have to look hard to find them.

Our community helps you turn experiences into practice, and practice into a career. It’s a safe place that helps you find your voice and we have the evidence to back it up. A major research institution with $44 million invested into research, we support your professional development. SLU ranks as the No. 1 Best College for Jobs in Missouri (Zippia 2018).
