Leo Meyer Society

What Will Your Legacy Be?

The University of Dayton established the Leo Meyer Society to recognize those who follow in the footsteps of the pioneering priest who helped found the University in 1850. Leo Meyer Society members ensure the future of the University by providing the financial resources necessary to offer outstanding educational opportunities for centuries to come.
