At Lourdes, we take seriously our Franciscan values of community, learning, reverence and service. For over 50 years, we have proudly offered residents of our region solid academic programs designed to educate the whole person. Our alumni are the very business executives, nurses and teachers who work and provide services to our family and friends.
Lourdes offers a variety of educational programming for the very young to the not so young. Thousands of people each year attend or participate in Theater Vision arts education, Life Lab programs and summer camps, Appold Planetarium shows and Lifelong Learning excursions and classes.
The concept of service to the community is one that our institutions of higher education take very seriously. Whether through our collaborations on scholarships, degree completion programs or partnerships with other non-profit organizations, our institutions focus on providing our community with the best education possible. In this edition, you will find a collection of stories that celebrate our work with the northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan region.
I encourage you to stay informed about upcoming events and opportunities available to you. From all our universities and colleges, we extend to you the very best.
Robert C. Helmer
