"THINK ABOUT IT"

"Think About It" is an online education program that helps prepare students for the unique challenges and responsibilities of college life. It addresses issues related to alcohol, drugs, and sexual misconduct and provides important information regarding LU policies and available resources.

MEDICAL PETITIONS

During a student’s academic career, unexpected situations may arise that interfere with the student’s ability to be academically successful in a given semester. Students may wish to consider petitioning for a medical withdrawal.

STUDENT CONDUCT, ACADEMIC DISHONESTY, & CONFLICT RESOLUTION

Through the disciplinary process, we seek to help students understand the impact their behavior has on the global community, and to assist them with making future decisions that lead to personal and professional success.

The Dean of Students is responsible for managing the University’s response to a deceased student. For this purpose, a student is defined as any student currently enrolled or enrolled in the previous semester.

CARDINALS PANTRY

A free and anonymous food pantry especially for LU students, the Cardinals Pantry was established to help fight food insecurity among LU students. Donations are always welcome!
