The Louisiana Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (LAICU) institutions have been an essential part of the recovery efforts in each region where they reside. LAICU institutions have been at the forefront of COVID-19 research, provided insight into the effects of health disparities, accelerated healthcare graduates to join the workforce in the fight against COVID-19 and utilized 3D printers to aid in the development of PPE. Our colleges and universities remain committed to continuing these essential activities while delivering learning to the students that are enrolled at our schools.

In preparing to safely re-open our campus for students, faculty, and staff to return, we arrived at a set of guiding principles for our colleges and universities to take into consideration. Given that each of the LAICU institutions have a unique mission, we developed these principles by embracing the unique attributes of our colleges and universities, while highlighting, the common values shared across our sector, private, nonprofit higher education.

LAICU is committed to opening safe and resilient campuses.
