Lives of Significance

Individuals of significant character and uncommon vision have defined Stetson University since its beginning 1883. These precedents still compel us to seek answers to the greatest challenges we face today.

Then as now, students come to Stetson to become business and social leaders, artists and innovators, guides and catalysts - to prepare for new and existing challenges with the broad knowledge and unflagging fortitude necessary to serve future generations with compassion, kindness and respect. The courage to build a better world is solidified with the confidence to do so.

Stetson's values, vision and commitment to excellence quickly become evident in each story of significance. It is in the real lives of students, alumni, faculty and staff that we see it is not the university that defines the individual, but rather the individual that defines the university.
