Starr explained that the grant is a part of Enterprise Holdings partnership with the university.

“Enterprise recruits [employees] heavily at Saint Leo,” said Nancy Cheek, associate director of Career Services for Saint Leo. “And Enterprise is always willing to send representatives to share career-related advice at both campus workshops and in webinar sessions for our Saint Leo WorldWide population.

“The company is global, and the local recruiting team does a great job of providing contacts in other parts of the country to our students who are interested in a career with Enterprise but are not in this area,” Cheek noted.

Saint Leo not only educates students at its main campus north of Tampa, FL but also online and at its more than 30 education centers in seven states.

Jen Shaw, vice president of Student Affairs, said Career Services may use the grant to fund an Enterprise-sponsored office dedicated to helping students and employers conduct interviews by Skype and using other technology. This would allow far-away employers to interview local students, and also let Saint Leo students located anywhere to interview with local business recruiters who might come to the new office.

In Fiscal Year 2018, Enterprise Holdings Foundation awarded $51.8 million in grants. Of that, 98 percent of the grants fulfill employee requests, with 8 percent going toward education. The company’s private foundation was established in 1982 to give back to the communities where customers and employees live and work. The foundation has contributed more than $354 million to thousands of local nonprofit organizations focused on community improvement, education, and environmental stewardship, according to its website.
