Saint Louis University Information
Saint Louis University (SLU) is a Jesuit-run private university in St Louis, a city in Missouri, United States.
It is among the 28 Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities member institutions and is the second oldest Jesuit-run college in the country. In the US News and World Report for 2009, the university is ranked 80th among “America’s Best Colleges”.
SLU has its roots from the Saint Louis Academy which was founded by the Bishop of Louisiana and the Florida’s, Most Reverend Louis Guillaume Valentin Dubourg on 16 November 1818. It was placed under Reverend Francois Niel and other secular clergy associated with the Saint Louis Cathedral. The campus was originally located at a private residence in an area close to the Mississippi River which is now a property of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial.
In 1820, the school’s name was changed to Saint Louis College. Through an act of the Missouri Legislature, the college was able to receive a charter as a university after its care was transferred by Bishop Dubourg to the Society of Jesus in 1827. It moved in 1829 to Washington Avenue and Ninth, where the America’s Centre stands today. The Saint Louis University then bought “Lindell’s Grove,” its present site, in 1867.
SLU has five colleges, eight schools, and an extension campus in Madrid, Spain. The colleges include the College of Arts and Sciences, Doisy College of Health Sciences, College of Education and Public Service, Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology, and College of Philosophy and Letters. The schools are School of Social, School of Public Health, School for Professional Studies, School of Nursing, School of Medicine, John Cook School of Business, School of Law, and the Graduate School. SLU offers over 85 undergraduate courses, masters and doctorate degrees, professional degrees, and adult education majors and programmes.
The university has produced graduates who have become notable in a wide range of disciplines. Some of its graduates include NBA Hall of Famer, Ed Macauley; Nicaraguan president, Enrique Bolaños; Boston College president, William Leahy; Lawyer and novelist, Richard Dooling; and Arizona Cardinals president, Michael Bidwill, amongst others.
