Lee Roy Selmon Mentoring Institute

Selmon Style signifies the same compassion, integrity, care, and steadfast support for all student-athletes, as modeled by the great Lee Roy Selmon. It stands for a commitment to helping student-athletes achieve their highest potential in the classroom, in athletics, and especially in their post-collegiate personal and professional lives.

  • To prepare student-athletes personally and professionally for the transition from USF into the next phase of their lives.
  • To expose student-athletes to professional work environments, helping them understand what it takes to be competitive in today's professional world.
  • To pair student-athletes with mentors whose proven track record of professional expertise and leadership can inspire, teach, and encourage.
  • To lend support, programming, and personalized mentorship for student-athletes with a true focus on helping them become all they can be in true Selmon Style.

Lee Roy Selmon Mentoring Institute was initially made possible through the support of Lee Roy Selmon's Restaurants, which made a significant gift to the program in memory of the restaurant's namesake. Now we are committed to raising the funding necessary to sustain this special program for future generations of student-athletes.

You can make a major difference in helping this program reach its potential and be a fitting tribute to Mr. Selmon. Your support will help underwrite dedicated staffing for the program, networking events, leadership class costs, business cards for program participants, and professional development programming such as corporate tours, an annual etiquette dinner, speed interviews, special seminars.
