Lourdes University, a Catholic liberal arts institution of higher education in the Franciscan tradition, serves men and women by providing continuing opportunities for intellectual discovery, accentuating both liberal learning and integrated professional education. It is the mission of the College to stimulate the growth of integrated persons; to engage them in an honest and dynamic search for truth; to encourage them to incorporate sound religious and philosophical values in their learning and in their interpersonal relationships; to challenge them to develop and deepen personal and social responsibility; to inspire in them a commitment to community service; and to provide an atmosphere that nurtures a holistic approach to learning within a caring, supportive, faith community.
