LeTourneau University has cancelled all of its on-ground classes that meet at its Houston site for the rest of this week in light of the flooding in the nations’ fourth largest city following Hurricane Harvey. Online classes will continue as scheduled.
LETU instructors are working with students on a course-by-course basis regarding alternative assignments and deadlines to accommodate their needs.
Decisions will be made later in the week to determine when the Houston location will reopen. LETU’s Houston address is 701 N Post Oak Rd, Suite B11 in Houston. Reports do not indicate flooding damage to the LETU Houston site at this time.
LETU faculty, staff and students are praying for the flood victims and determining the best way to help. LETU’s Longview campus is on standby to provide temporary shelter to patients from a network of skilled nursing facilities should their evacuation from the Houston metro become necessary.
LeTourneau University is the premier Christian polytechnic university in the nation where educators engage students to nurture Christian virtue, develop competency and ingenuity in their professional fields, integrate faith and work, and serve the local and global community. LETU offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs across a range of disciplines and delivery models at LETU’s residential campus in Longview, Texas, and in hybrid and fully online options at centers in the Dallas and Houston areas.
