About Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University

About Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University

In 1911, six fearless Sisters from Calais, France, boarded the SS Rochambeau for an arduous journey across the ocean to answer a call for healthcare in Louisiana. Today, the statewide health system that the six Sisters built — and the school they created in 1923 — now Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University — thrive as a testament to the Sisters’ faith, hard work and vision.

Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University Core Values:

Service is part of the very fabric of Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University. As a Franciscan institution, which has been a leader in healthcare-related education in Louisiana for more than 90 years, we value the opportunity to serve others "with joyfulness of spirit, and with humility and justice for all those entrusted to our care." We believe that our Catholic values grow stronger as we take action to improve our community. Our service-related curricular and co-curricular programs allow our students to foster intellectual, spiritual, social and civic development through participation in community improvement projects and service-learning. Service-learning, an educational experience in which students learn from and reflect upon participation in meaningful community service, has been used successfully at the university in both traditional and clinically-based classrooms to enhance course objectives and improve learning and engagement.
