About Our Lady of the Lake University:

Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) is a nationally ranked private, non- profit, small, Catholic Liberal Arts University with a deep connection to the history and community of San Antonio, Texas.

Since its founding at OLLU in 1985, HACU's advocacy to Congress has secured more than 1.7 billion dollars for Hispanic Serving Institutions nationally. As the leader of HSIs, OLLU is truly dedicated to serving Latinx students and recognizes the importance of supporting inclusive, equitable, or accessible learning environments. Our Mission outlines this dedication and was revised in Jan 2022 to support such efforts:
