Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University will take additional measures for Fall 2021 to ensure a healthy and safer campus due to the progression of the COVID-19 virus.
All FranU faculty, staff and students who will be on campus are required to be vaccinated with one of the following COVID-19 vaccines: Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson and Johnson. Proof of vaccination will be required by August 13, 2021.
All students, faculty and staff will be expected to continue to follow established campus health and safety protocols such as required COVID-19 testing, wearing a mask, maintaining physical distance, and daily self-monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19.
Students, faculty and staff may request an exemption from the vaccination requirement for reasons consistent with Louisiana state vaccine laws.
In a letter to FranU students, faculty and staff, University President Dr. Tina Holland noted, “All FranU policy decisions, including those related to COVID-19 mitigation, are rooted in our mission as a Catholic and Franciscan University. Our faith-based approach provides a solid foundation for decision-making. As a Franciscan community, we respect one another’s individual beliefs, but we must also act in the community's best interest.”
