Cuts to majors may leave OLLU's mission in question

By Gianna Rendon After President Pollack's decision to phase out 12 majors at OLLU, some students and faculty now ask how a Catholic University can uphold it's identity without Religious studies as an major. Oswald Nira, department chair of the Humanities and Social Sciences and Religious Studies professor, said via email that the recent major cuts are inconsistent with the mission of the university.

Students questioned Pollack about major cuts
