OLLU joins with the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities (ACCU) and institutions of Catholic higher education across the nation in celebrating today's U.S. Supreme Court decision on Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals.
In response to worldwide calls to dismantle institutionalized racism led by the Black Lives Matter Movement and recent sharing of sexual assaults and harassment at our campus, we, the faculty of Our Lady of the Lake University who serve you as professors, teachers, advisors, and mentors, stand with you against all harmful forces including sexual assault and harassment, racism, sexism, colorism, prejudice, xenophobia, heterosexism, colonialism, ableism, ageism, cisgenderism, classism, religious oppression, and violence.
The OLLU All-Access program will allow undergraduate students to "rent" textbooks and digital materials for free for the semester. If everything is returned at the end of the semester, there will be no out-of-pocket costs.
I have been made aware of accusations of sexual assault against current and former OLLU students that were shared on Twitter. I take this very seriously. Violence and abuse are against everything OLLU stands for.
OLLU will be celebrating our spring 2020 graduates with Drive-Thru Diploma Pick-Up Parades on the San Antonio, Rio Grande Valley and Houston campuses.
