I AM ADJUNCT FACULTY IN THE HISTORY DEPARTMENT OF LOYOLA NEW ORLEANS

According to the President's Office at Loyola University Chicago, Loyola University New Orleans sustained minimal wind/storm surge damage from Hurricane Katrina. The major problem now is flooding around the school, sewage and sanitation, and electricity.
Other information provided by the President's Office of Loyola Chicago, (312) 915-6400:

There will most likely be no classes this semester at Loyola University New Orleans, although a formal decision has not yet been made.

All students that were evacuated from the New Orleans campus to Baton Rouge are safe; about 75% have already been transported to their homes or elsewhere.

AJCU, the National Jesuit organization, is hosting an emergency website concerning the school. It's address is www.ajcunet.edu.

<>All of the Jesuit universities in the country will attempt to admit as many Loyola University New Orleans students as possible as non-matriculating visiting students for at least a semester, possibly a year if necessary. There are 28 universities in the system. A list of them is on http://www.ajcunet.edu/tier.aspx?bid=54

There is a statement from the AJCU President regarding Loyola New Orleans at http://www.ajcunet.edu/tier.aspx?bid=451 and an update from Aug. 31 about Loyola New Orleans at http://www.ajcunet.edu/tier.aspx?bid=450

Loyola Chicago does not know if non-Jesuit schools will also offer visiting admission to Loyola NO students. You may wish to check with local institutions wherever you are. There are no Jesuit schools in the Texas area. The closest, Springhill University in Mobile, Alabama, is so far planning on commencing classes on Monday, Sept. 5.

There has also been a message posted from Tulane University President Cowen, which you can read at http://www.tulane.edu/

The following are web links which may be of help in getting information on the New Orleans area:

NEWS AGENCIES


BLOGS


DISASTER RELIEF AGENCIES

Due to the communication problems caused by the hurricane, the loyno server may be down indefinitely. This means loyno emails are inaccessible as well. You may want to consider getting another address, if you don't already have one.

Any undergrad student still in the affected areas who can't contact their homes may contact me at wareave@consolidated.net and I'll try to get in touch with your families.

take care,

Shannon Duffy,

History Department,

Loyola University New Orleans
