SLU values academic excellence, life-changing research, compassionate health care, and a strong commitment to faith and service. For nearly 200 years, the University has gone beyond teaching facts and figures, encouraging students to form ideas and identities. Today, SLU students are more than 13,500 strong, seeking to mold their lives into something stronger.

The University has invested vast resources to advance academic programs and enhance the student experience. SLU also is a major research institution where premier researchers tackle local and global challenges. And the University’s commitment to community service has earned it national acclaim and bolstered its status as a character-building college.

In SLU’s classrooms, ethics, spirituality and compassion are fundamental, no matter what the subject. More than 80 of SLU’s courses integrate service into academics. And this spirit pervades campus; SLU students, faculty and staff provide more than a million service hours each year.

In addition, Saint Louis University is a major catalyst for urban renewal in the heart of a remarkable city. The University has funded more than $850 million in campus improvements and expansions during the past 25 years. And its annual economic impact on the region exceeds $715 million.

Founded in 1818, SLU was the first university west of the Mississippi River. As it approaches 200 years, Saint Louis University is going boldly forward with an unwavering commitment to a higher purpose, a greater good.

Region Description
Much of Greater St. Louis’ character and charm arises from its neighborhoods, which foster a connectedness among people that is rare today among large metropolitan areas. Whether it is to their immediate neighborhoods, to their schools, or to their particular municipalities within the 15-county region, St. Louisans tend to develop strong ties to their close surroundings.

There are hundreds of distinct neighborhoods and mini-communities in the area, far too many to list individually.
