Enduring Questions Courses
- BIO 399 What Makes Us Sick?
This course analyzes the historical, cultural, ethical and scientific issues related to various human diseases and disorders. It also looks at the social, cultural and economic impacts of these diseases.
- BUS 399 SLW What Makes a Leader?
(Online, with service learning)This seminar course explores the nature of leadership by examining contemporary leadership theory and relating it to relevant examples found in works of literature, philosophy, and history. Themes that will be explored, among others, include character, communication, vision, motivation, success, and failure. Lessons will be extracted from select leadership figures in literature and history.
- SWK 399 What is the Role of Parenting? We will explore the upbringings of the parenting experts themselves, the fluctuations in their advice and the details of their downfalls. The nineteenth and twentieth centuries saw a dramatic shift in the role of children in society and families. Surveying popular media, childrearing manuals, and newspapers and journals published throughout the century, we will explore how some early advice may be presenting itself in a new form. The course provides the students with the opportunity to participate in personal exploration of self as well as the larger picture of how society impacts the ever changing role of parent.
Students are always encouraged to resolve academic issues directly, in an informal manner, with the member of the faculty, staff, or administration involved. If a student wishes to have an Undergraduate final grade reconsidered, the student must first meet with the instructor and attempt to resolve the difference. In no case will a grade be revised in accordance with criteria other than those applied to all students in the class. If no resolution can be reached with the instructor, the student may initiate a formal Final Grade Grievance.
Please refer to the current Academic Catalog for a detailed explanation of Final Grade Grievance procedures and deadlines. Questions regarding a Final Grade Grievance can also be addressed by academic advisors or the Executive Assistant to the Vice President of Academic Affairs. Final Grade Grievance forms can be downloaded below.

Holidays and School Closings
Lourdes University is closed on all legal holidays: Good Friday; Memorial Day; Independence Day; Labor Day; Thanksgiving; Christmas; New Year’s Day; Martin Luther King Day.
Additional closings will be posted. All weather-related and/or emergency campus-wide cancellations are announced on Toledo radio and television stations. Do not call the Lourdes University switchboard. (Evening classes include all classes beginning at or after 3:50 p.m.)
All courses may only be repeated once. To determine whether a course may be repeated, a student who does not withdraw from a class prior to the financial aid “freeze date” is considered to have “taken” the course.
Financial Aid Freeze
Aid is determined by the student’s enrollment as of the Freeze Date. For courses that begin later in the term (Q or late summer sessions), you must be registered for the course(s) on the Freeze Date if you wish to be considered for aid for those credit hours.
Note: If you do register for a part of term class and receive aid based on that enrollment, and do not attend, your aid will be adjusted and you may owe the University money. Remember, for aid, you must be enrolled for all sessions and part of term sessions, e.g. Q classes, all summer sessions, before the Freeze Date.
All changes in registration are made officially in the Office of the Registrar with the approval of the student’s advisor. No student may register for a class after the late registration period. Effective date of withdrawal is the date on the official Add/Drop form signed by the advisor. Mere cessation of attendance does not constitute official withdrawal.
