WHY GIVE TO ST. THOMAS UNIVERSITY
Thank you for considering making a gift to St. Thomas University. You join an impressive group of alumni, parents, family and friends that have given their vote of confidence to St. Thomas University.

The STU Annual Fund supports the Pathways to Leadership program, and is vital to the health and continued growth of the entire university. Through Pathways to Leadership we are developing leadership experiences through internship and study abroad programs, undergraduate research, student competitions, symposia & conferences, and athletics. We are committed to providing our students with every available opportunity to develop their leadership skills and to give them an “edge” in graduate school and the workforce.
