Lourdes Strategic Directions 2015
Approved by the Board of Trustees, September 3, 2008
Lourdes commits itself to serving as a strong and vibrant regional institution providing a holistic education in a supportive environment to a diverse body of 3,000 students.
Lourdes will respond to the needs of our region offering expanded and innovative academic programs and student services that promote the growth of our student body and the economic impact they have on their communities.
Direction #1: A Strong Institution
Lourdes will continue to offer high quality academic programs both in the liberal arts and in professional studies. Placing the success of our students and alumni at the forefront, Lourdes will strengthen its student intellectual life through increased support of faculty scholarship and research, and offer more study abroad opportunities.
We will strengthen physical resources and expand our facilities to meet the needs of the campus community. As a strong community, we will increase our financial resources and demonstrate our commitment to the Franciscan mission and values on which we were founded.
