Welcome from the Vice President of Student Development

Dear Parents and Families of Saint Louis University Students,                                    kent porterfield            

We are happy that you are part of our family at Saint Louis University, and we hope to form and nurture a strong relationship with you. The University shares with you a common objective, which is to help your daughter or son maximize her or his undergraduate experience at SLU.

We hope that, through our parent programs and resources, you will feel connected to the SLU community and the students’ experiences.  We care deeply about the holistic development and well being of all of our students, and we know that your involvement in their lives has been instrumental in getting them here and will continue to be critical to their success while at SLU and beyond.

Rev. Fr. Kolvenbach, S.J., former Superior General of the Society of Jesus, once said that “The real measure of our Jesuit Universities lies in who our students become.” We believe strongly in this idea and know that our efforts must be partnered with yours if we are to succeed in preparing our students for the possibilities that await them beyond their time at SLU. 

With this said, we thank you for being part of our Saint Louis University family and hope that you will take advantage of the programs and resources that have been developed with you in mind.  All  the best wishes and “Go Billikens”!

-Dr. Kent Porterfield

Higher purpose. Greater good.
