Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University has been ranked the number one safest college campus in Louisiana by Niche and graded an A by American School Search.
The University provides an annual security report in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act, as amended. It offers students and employees of FranU with information on the University’s security arrangements, safety policies and procedures; programs that provide education on such things as drug and alcohol abuse, awareness of various kinds of sex offenses, and the prevention of crime generally; and procedures the University will take to notify the campus community in the event of an emergency. Its purpose is to provide students and employees with information that will help them make informed decisions relating to their safety and the safety of others.
“As parents of four children, all of whom were blessed to attend college, my husband and I were no different than today’s parents for whom safety is an important factor when choosing a college or university experience. All colleges and universities must comply with strict requirements imposed by federal authorities and accrediting agencies. While the need for compliance goes without speaking, what motivates us at FranU to ensure a safe campus is our Franciscan mission. We are commanded to love and respect the members of our campus community, and as such, we do our best to ensure their safety and well-being,” said Tina Holland, president and CEO of FranU.
FranU is located in the heart of the healthcare district off of Essen Lane, composed of three schools: School of Nursing, School of Arts and Sciences, and School of Health Professions, with an enrollment of 1,230 students and 180 full-time faculty and staff.
