Endowing Our Future

Endowed Academic Programs

Endowment Supports Academic Programs

While St. Lawrence remains competitive among liberal arts institutions and has made significant strides toward being recognized as more selective, there remains much more to do. We must endow our future starting with what we already do so well. St. Lawrence is known for innovations in curricular structure and flexibility, particularly in cross-linking the liberal arts disciplines. This approach to learning empowers students to deal with complexity and enables them to take part in solving global challenges. Recognizing this approach as an institutional distinction, we need to sustain and advance it.

Distinctly St. Lawrence programs like the New York City Semester, Business in the Liberal Arts, SLU Connect, the Adirondack Semester and Sustainability Program need endowment resources to guarantee their existence well into the future.
