Throughout the covid-19 pandemic, Lourdes University has continued to meet community needs.
Following the governor’s order, University faculty made the swift transition from face-to-face to online learning. Less than a week later as students returned from spring break, professors were ready to assist them with their courses and successfully complete spring semester. Summer sessions will also feature online-only courses.
Lourdes University has remained open during the pandemic. Employees working remotely and departments with rotating in-person coverage are providing needed academic services, apartment-style housing and to-go dining for those students unable to return home due to travel restrictions and for those that count Lourdes as their primary residence. The University is offering creative virtual experiences for student life activities, registration days, awards ceremonies and tours. A student food pantry has remained stocked for those in need and the University has continued the weekly Toledo Labre outreach project – bringing food and refreshments to those in need in two Toledo neighborhoods.
Responding to the needs of the healthcare community, Lourdes is providing on-campus housing for ProMedica medical staff who are from out of town, or due to home situations with high-risk family members, require respite housing. In addition, the University has provided all of its PPE resources to Rosary Care Center, a nursing home and sponsored ministry of the Sisters of St. Francis.
Lourdes University remains committed to the region and our greater community.
Rooted in the Catholic and Franciscan tradition, Lourdes University is sponsored by the Sisters of St. Francis, and offers baccalaureate degrees in a variety of academic majors as well as graduate degrees in business, education, nursing, organizational leadership, social work, and theology. Community outreach programs include the Appold Planetarium and Lifelong Learning. A member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, Lourdes students can also compete in a variety of men’s and women’s sports. Named a “Best in the Midwest” college by the Princeton Review, Lourdes University is a nationally accredited, veteran and transfer-friendly institution offering a variety of student scholarships.
