Established in 1818, the College of Arts and Sciences is the oldest college at Saint Louis University – as old as the University itself. It is also the largest academic unit on campus, offering degrees in more than 30 academic areas. And with a mission rooted in the University’s mission to educate the whole person – body, heart and spirit – the College of Arts and Sciences remains at the heart of this great Catholic institution.
In the College of Arts and Sciences, we strive to provide students with a values-based, world-class education – a goal that is realized only through the commitment of our alumni and donors. With your support, we are able to provide our students with meaningful opportunities that prepare them to be leaders in their various professions.
As we celebrate 200 years of Saint Louis University today – and 200 years of the College of Arts and Sciences – we invite you to honor the history and legacy of the school by making a gift. For every 25 donors that make a gift to the College of Arts and Sciences, Dr. Jeffrey and Tracy (GRAD A&S 2007, GRAD A&S 2016) Heaton have generously pledged to give an additional $5,000, up to $25,000.
Dr. Jeffrey and Tracy (GRAD A&S 2007, GRAD A&S 2016) Heaton established the John Turnage Scholarship for International Studies as a memorial to Tracy’s father. John Turnage was a senior vice president at Kellwood Apparel in St. Louis who valued higher education. He always supported the educational goals of his four daughters and five grandchildren. At Saint Louis University, Tracy completed a Master of Arts in French in 2007 and a Master of Arts in Spanish in 2016. Tracy studied at both the St. Louis and Madrid campuses of SLU and credits the Jesuit education that she received at SLU with her own development as a teacher. Tracy is a middle school teacher in the Parkway School District and her husband, Jeff is a vice president at Reinsurance Group of America.
