Service is part of the very fabric of Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University. Our Franciscan institution has been a leader in healthcare-related education in Louisiana for over 90 years and we value the opportunity to serve others "with joyfulness of spirit, and with humility and justice for all those entrusted to our care." These values are reflected by our board, leadership, faculty and staff.
You may think that as a university president...I have possessed a life-long love for education. Well, not so. As a young girl I constantly complained about school and its drudgery. Nevertheless, my demanding mother, a first generation American of Japanese parents, took academic achievement very seriously. Her constant reply was, “School is work. Work is good. Now get to work!” As a point of honor, I obeyed. It was not until later in life that I began to sincerely appreciate the real value of education.
2018 was a #FRANtastic year at FranU! Let’s take a look back at a few of our proudest moments.
Congratulations to our students who made the Fall 2018 semester Deans’ and President’s lists for outstanding academic work.
The very first cohort of FranU Master of Science in Nutritional Sciences (MSNS) program received their master’s degrees at the Fall commencement ceremony on Saturday, December 15, 2018.
Congratulations to our MSNS graduates, faculty and staff!
