Open Letter to Graduates

Dear Graduates,

Congratulations! Your faculty at Saint Leo University is proud of what you have accomplished today and your future accomplishments yet to come. Teaching you has been our life's work, and we share your joy. We are also committed to ensuring future alumni will have the same opportunities of educational excellence available to you for years to come.

However, excellence requires stability. For the past forty years, Saint Leo faculty has been unionized, and their tenure, pay, and other rights have been guaranteed in a collective bargaining agreement. It was a shared governance arrangement. The recent decision of the Board of Trustees to unrecognize the SLU Faculty Union threatens that stability and the administration of those rights.

As we have supported you, we humbly ask you to support us. We invite you to sign our petition at We would love to hear from you.

We are honored to have been your teachers while you were at Saint Leo. We wish you the best in all of your future endeavors.
