Serving the Community

Our Catholic Faith and Providence are expressed throughout our academic programs and student activities, but they are highlighted in a number of key areas. Through our General Education curriculum, all undergraduate students take a religious studies course, a philosophy course and a service-learning course mentored by faculty.

Service is ingrained in the OLLU culture. Along with service-learning courses, the University maintains a Center for Service-Learning and Volunteerism, which coordinates student service with community nonprofit organizations.

The Center for Women in Church and Society empowers and transforms the personal and public lives of women through educational, spiritual, and leadership opportunities.

Additionally, the University operates the Harry Jersig Speech and Hearing Clinic, and the Community Counseling Service. These centers provide service to the community at low or no cost and provide students the opportunity for real-world, hands-on experience in these fields.
