Return to Campus – COVID Information Updates

The Louisiana Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (LAICU) ten member institutions have made decisions with the greatest concern for the health, safety and welfare of our students, faculty, staff and the members of the communities in which we live, during the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak. 

Our colleges and universities are committed to reopening safe and resilient campuses. We have proactively responded to the seriousness of this situation and will continue to work to mitigate the spread of the virus, while remaining focused on our institution’s missions where the delivery of learning is at the core.

LAICU continues to coordinate with our partners locally and nationally and is committed to collaboration and support of Louisiana Higher Education, our local communities, the state of Louisiana and our nation. LAICU institutions will follow the outlined measures on our campuses as long as COVID-19 is a risk and threat to our communities.

We recognize that these are very challenging times and our institutions are leading with care and intentionality to ensure that every consideration is made to provide information, support, and consistency for the communities we serve. To learn more please visit our campus sites listed below.
