We offer over 45,000 e-journals, 130,000 ebooks, and 40,000 traditional print books, including a popular-reading collection of books and DVDs. You can easily access our online resources 24/7 on or off-campus. Students and faculty can also borrow iPads, laptops, and a variety of small equipment.

Food and covered beverages are welcome throughout the library. We encourage you to reserve our study rooms for individual and group study, ASHNU meetings, or personal projects (see our website for reservation forms).

Our expert librarians are ready to help you succeed in school through one-on-one assistance or our library classes. You can ask your questions by text, chat, or email, or just walk in during our librarian service hours (posted on our website). We also offer dozens of online research guides on popular topics such as nursing, business, and sports biology.

For both full and part-time faculty we offer customized information literacy instruction. We have a Library Classroom with 20 student iMacs, projectors, and an instructor’s workstation. Due to high demand, this classroom is not available for semester-long instruction, but it can be reserved for individual sessions that require hands-on computer interaction. We also have a smaller Seminar Room with a projector, whiteboards, tables, and flexible seating. See our website to reserve either classroom.

You can place your own interlibrary loan requests directly through our catalog, or use forms on our website. As members of Camino, a high-speed resource-sharing network, we can fill many requests within two business days. Other requests are filled through traditional interlibrary loan or through purchases.

We welcome recommendations for book and journal acquisitions. See the forms on our website.

We regularly offer art and book talks, concerts, and featured speakers, and we welcome student-led events as well as recommendations for events. Other services include course reserves and thesis binding. The Kennedy Fine and Performing Arts Center also offers a folk music collection representing the regions and ethnic groups of the United States.

Academic Support Services

The Advising and Learning Resource Center provides academic support services to all Holy Names University students. The ALRC offers tutoring, including one-on-one and group tutoring, as well as facilitated study groups and group review sessions in select subjects. In addition students have access to the Math Lab, a drop in math tutoring center, and the Writing Studio located in the HNU Library. The ALRC also offers a variety of skill building and informational workshops. Every effort is made to accommodate students’ tutoring and other academic support needs; however, there is no guarantee that a qualified tutor will be available for every subject. Students are encouraged to take full advantage of faculty office hours and to develop peer study groups to enhance their success. Requests for tutoring support can be made via HNU’s TutorTrac system at hnututor.hnu.edu. Other academic support questions can be directed to advising@hnu.edu.

Distance Education Online Policy

  1. Distance Education is a formal educational process using technological delivery in which the majority of instructional interaction occurs where students and instructors are not in the same place. Instruction may be synchronous or asynchronous. Distance education may employ correspondence study, audio, video, or other electronically-mediated technologies. Academic courses or programs are considered to be distance education entities when fifty percent or more of the content is delivered through distance education modes. Currently, HNU does not offer any fully online programs.
  2. Holy Names University (HNU) offers online courses in a learning centered environment that fulfill the same objectives, meet the same outcomes, and are assessed with the same rigor as traditional courses. Just as traditional courses observe standards appropriate to that mode, online courses observe the guidelines and standards in this document.
  3. All HNU courses will adhere to current HNU policies and bylaws, and to all WSCUC requirements.
  4. Definitions
    1. Online Course: An online course provides all instruction in an asynchronous manner and has limited or no regular on-campus schedule, with the exception of proctored assignments when applicable. Synchronous chat room activities or interactive video may be used when appropriate.
    2. Hybrid Course: A hybrid course shall have flexible learning formats to enhance student learning. It includes an in-class component, but the format may differ from a traditional course by using flexible class meeting times, flipped classrooms, online components, and/or other delivery modalities (such as video, interactive video,etc.).
    3. Traditional Course: A traditional course conducts all class sessions on campus in a synchronous manner. Traditional courses may use web resources for course management such as posting class notes, quizzes, or other class resources. Students enrolled in traditional courses with important or required web components may access any online course components through HNU computer labs.

Study Abroad and Exchange Programs

In accordance with the mission of our institution of providing students with a full holistic education, Holy Names University encourages students to take advantage of opportunities to broaden their undergraduate experience through a semester or year of study in a foreign country. Study Abroad enhances the students’ learning journey through college and university. Learning abroad is experiential living in another culture, its traditions and customs. It gives the student an opportunity to interact with an ample range of people. At the same time, students develop skills in how to use time and money, strengthening their survival skills while being away from home. Study Abroad complements the academic learning and teaches lessons that cannot be learned in the classroom.

Study Trip Immersion Experiences to Latin America.

Students who are part of this program come back with an initial understanding of the social reality of Latin America and they become more aware of the historical and cultural contrast with their lives here in the United States.

The program is a package of three components:

  1. A course during the fall that introduces students to the history and culture of the place they will visit.
  2. The actual study trip that lasts between 8 to 10 days.
  3. A course that reflects on the trip and also covers the spirituality and religion of the place we visited. During the spring semester, students also share their experience with the Holy Names University community through a public presentation.

The whole program is a Community Based Learning experience where students give 15 hours to a community program during each semester. (See LALS 177/RSTL 177, RSTL 178, RSTL 180, and RSTL 181 for more information.)

Holy Names University participates in a cooperative agreement with Central College of Pella, Iowa. Through this program students may study in France, Ghana, Austria, Spain, London, Wales, the Netherlands, and Mexico. Holy Names’ students and faculty are also welcome to study Spanish at the Center for Bilingual Multicultural Studies in Cuernavaca, Mexico. The University also has an exchange agreement with Anna Maria College in Paxton, Massachusetts.

Students interested in studying abroad should consult the Study Abroad as much as a year in advance. Students should consult their major advisor(s) regarding specific courses to be taken, especially if the student wishes to take upper-division major courses to satisfy degree requirements. Students must obtain final approval of the course of study and transfer of credit through the Registrar’s Office. Students receiving financial aid should consult with the Director of Financial Aid regarding possibilities for applying financial aid awards to study abroad.

ESL: English as a Second Language

Non-native speakers of English whose academic preparation and knowledge of English make them eligible for admission to the University, but who still need further study of English, take Holy Names University ESL classes. These students enroll in a sequence of ESL courses developed specifically for non-native speakers of English while simultaneously beginning their coursework for a Bachelor’s or a Master’s degree. All units earned in Holy Names University ESL courses count towards the Bachelor’s degree.

Raskob Learning Institute and Day School

The Ellen K. Raskob Learning Institute opened in 1960 to serve the needs of both children and adults who, in spite of average or better than average intelligence, have learning disabilities. The holistic philosophy of the Institute is centered upon the individual and emphasizes a multi-disciplinary approach, using educational, psychological and medical information in both diagnosis and remediation. Instruction today focuses upon reading skills, handwriting, spelling, study skills, vocabulary development, and mathematics. A library is available for students in order to encourage their reading for pleasure.

In 1973, the Institute established a full-time coeducational Day School for children in Grades 2-8. The Day School emphasizes reading, language arts, and math in a structured, individualized program. The content areas of history, geography, health, and science are provided within study units. The school is certified by the California State Department of Education and serves children with learning disabilities who do not have primary behavioral or emotional problems.

Holy Names University students may receive diagnostic testing for learning disabilities and intensive remedial instruction in reading, writing, language, and related skills through the Raskob Learning Institute. These services require an additional fee. After assessment, the student may choose to collaborate with the Coordinator of Disabled Student Services (DSS) in order to request accommodations or academic adjustments.

J.D. Kennedy Arts Center

Kennedy Arts Center contributes to the aesthetic richness of the Bay Area, serving students, artists, performers and appreciative audiences.

Since the center opened in 1964, its art gallery has served as an important resource supporting HNU’s historic commitment to music and the visual and performing arts. The gallery is a venue for exhibiting student and faculty work, hosting temporary installations and exhibitions and serving as a focal point for workshops, discussions, presentations and other arts-related events. The center is enhanced by a garden courtyard which often serves as a backdrop and reception area for events and activities. It is also an ideal setting for quiet study and reflection for the entire campus community.

Kennedy Arts Center contains music classrooms, art studios, faculty offices, and a resource center that houses music recordings, art history resources and the Kodály program folk music collection. Drama productions and musical offerings, especially the numerous recitals of graduate and undergraduate music majors, are often presented in the small auditorium, McElroy Hall.

Valley Center for Performing Arts

Fall 1994 marked the opening of the Valley Center for Performing Arts. Funded by a $3 million challenge grant from the Wayne and Gladys Valley Foundation, this multi-use complex houses a 400-seat theatre and a smaller studio space for more flexible staging opportunities. The upper level wing features studios, offices and a large instruction area. The Valley Center’s unique design and extensive technical resources offers HNU, Oakland and the East Bay community an exciting new location for performances and meetings.

Preparatory Music Department

The Preparatory Music Department was founded in 1968 by Sister Therese-Cecile Murphy, a professor of music at Holy Names College, and an early proponent of Suzuki music education in the West. The program became a center of Suzuki Education in the United States and has continued to be a renowned community music school. Beginning with sixteen students of violin, it has grown to include twenty-five instructors of piano, violin, viola, cello, harp, guitar, flute, oboe, recorder, voice and early childhood music education. Prep Music faculty presently provide expert musical instruction to over 200 students in Oakland and surrounding cities, including youth orchestras, chamber music, piano ensemble classes, and violin and cello group classes.

The program offers both Suzuki and Traditional approaches to music, but remains a well-known and respected center of Suzuki learning in the Bay Area.

The Suzuki philosophy provides a natural and logical approach to music education, based on how children learn language. It begins with training the ear and fostering musical ability in a nurturing environment. Music-reading begins as soon as there is an ease and fluency with the instrument, and the student is ready to decipher the written language of music on the page.

In addition to private lessons and ensembles, Preparatory Music instructors offer frequent “studio recitals” for their students, as well as numerous program-wide events that are unique to the program: an annual Pops Concert, a concerto competition, Solo & Ensemble Festival, Friday Evening and Sunday Afternoon Recitals, and a Concerto Festival.

Campus Life

Holy Names University is a diverse community committed to social justice and service. It is a place where faculty, staff, and students are committed to each other’s success, inside and outside the classroom. HNU is a community where you will be challenged to work hard, study diligently, and learn your passion—a community where minds are liberated and lives are transformed.

Home to approximately 1400 students, members of the Holy Names University community reflect the ethnic diversity of the Bay Area. HNU enrolls students from Asia, Europe, Central America, North America, South America, Oceana, and Africa. HNU enrolls students in traditional undergraduate programs as well as students returning to college to complete bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

In the classroom and through co-curricular and experiential learning programs, students of diverse nationalities and cultures learn what it means to be a citizen of the world: a self-reliant, creative, and critical thinker who serves others as a leader for positive social change. Hence, we expect students at HNU to be thoroughly engaged in and committed to developing their full potential.

As stated in the Holy Names University Community Standards and Code of Conduct, “[HNU] strives to help students grow into increasingly responsible and community-minded persons, and to provide students, staff, and faculty with an environment conducive to the pursuit of knowledge. Such an environment is based upon respect, trust, and integrity among all members of the community.”

Students, faculty, and staff form a learning community at HNU that promotes intellectual and professional excellence by fostering the capacity to think critically, communicate clearly, understand the resources and interconnections of knowledge, and appreciate ethical and cultural issues. Holy Names University proposes to all students the importance of finding significance in life in spiritual, creative, and intellectual terms and the necessity of developing a set of ethical values to guide personal conduct.

In cases whereby students do not meet the standards of integrity outlined in the Community Standards and Code of Conduct (i.e., academic misconduct, disruptive behavior, harassment, sexual harassment, and sexual misconduct), they may have their actions addressed by the university’s judicial system. All students are obligated to familiarize themselves with and adhere to the Community Standards and Code of Conduct, rules and regulations of the institution. HNU students and employees are subject to all federal and California state laws.

Orientation and First-Year Programs

Holy Names University’s New Student Orientation creates a foundation for student success by facilitating the successful transition of students and their families to our diverse academic, social and cultural campus community. Orientation is an on-going experience that fosters unity, communicates expectations for academic excellence, promotes community values and builds relationships by encouraging students to explore and reflect on their full potential. All new students admitted for fall semester should plan to attend this required program which takes place during the four days preceding the first day of classes.

Through participation in New Student Orientation, students will: • Make valuable connections with fellow students, staff, and faculty • Gain an understanding of the expectations for student success both inside and outside of the classroom • Understand more about HNU culture and traditions • Develop familiarity with HNU campus resources.

Orientation for students in the Adult and Graduate Programs introduces them to important campus resources and services. Participants will have the opportunity to meet with their advisors, register for classes, and receive orientations to Hawk’s Edge, Blackboard, and Library Services.

The Connections Project (CP) assists first-year students in connecting to the University and each other through our learning communities: Social Justice, Leadership and Service.  Students in the Connections Project enroll in designated courses, have support from a Peer Mentor, participate in workshops and activities through the CP Lab, and engage with the campus common reading. All first-year students participate in and receive the benefits of the Connections Project, regardless of whether students live on or off campus.

Through participation in the Connections Project program, students will: • Develop the tools and skills needed for a successful transition to college • Learn how to become an active and engaged member of the HNU community • Learn about the HNU mission of leadership, service and social justice • Gain an appreciation for living in a diverse community and a global society.

Residence Life

At Holy Names University, we believe a total educational experience encompasses the learning that takes place outside the formal classroom setting. Residence hall living is an integral part of a student’s total educational development. When choosing to live in the residence halls at Holy Names University, students begin a process of life-long education and growth—a process encouraged by our diverse community. Residents have the opportunity to build relationships with students from all over the world and from a variety of cultures and lifestyles. Living in the residence halls are students who are beginning to share their lives, as well as students who are reshaping and redefining their world. Our residents range in age from 17 to 70 years old. They come from all parts of the globe and speak many different languages. Whatever culture, talents, and goals they have to share, all residents are valuable and unique members of our community.

The Residence Life Staff at Holy Names University is responsible for the overall management of the residence halls. Their goal is to create and maintain an environment that is conducive to learning and to the personal development of all students in residence. A staff member is available at all times to assist residents with questions, concerns, and security issues, as well as socializing and community building.

Students interested in applying for on-campus housing must complete an HNU Housing Application and submit a housing deposit as well as proof of immunizations.

Each student in residence must sign a Residence Life Contract before receiving her/his room key. This contract should be read carefully as students will be held responsible for its terms and conditions. In the standard Residence Life Contract, students must leave the halls during Winter and Summer breaks and meals are not covered during the Thanksgiving and Spring breaks, or during Summer. The Residence Life Contract is a full academic year contract. There will be a contract cancellation fee applied to all terminated contracts after residents check into the halls. If a student breaks the contract prior to the end of either semester, any refund will be subject to the prorated schedule established by the Student Accounts Office.

Associated Students of Holy Names University (ASHNU)

All enrolled students are members of the Associated Students of Holy Names University (ASHNU). The purpose of the association is to parallel the mission of the University by promoting the development of the whole person through various programs, activities, and dialogues among Holy Names University students and with the community at large.

The ASHNU Council serves as the governing body of ASHNU and is composed of eight executive officers and eight members of the Class Council. These 16 student leaders represent the student body by acting as a voice to the administration, faculty, staff, and outside community regarding social, political, cultural, and academic issues relevant to HNU students.

Student Clubs

The University strongly encourages and supports campus clubs and organizations. Students may participate in spiritual, social, professional, educational, and cultural organizations. Club membership is open to all interested students, faculty, and staff at the University. Each student club is required to register annually with the University through the Division of Student Affairs and all registered clubs are eligible to request funding from ASHNU via a written proposal.

Career Services

Career Services works to provide quality advising, programming, and assessment to all students and alumni in the areas of career exploration and development. Our purpose is to educate students and alumni about the skills and resources needed to achieve their career goals while also teaching students how to evolve and grow in their careers through self-assessment and self-awareness.

Career Services also encourages students to participate in career-related internships that aim to provide practical learning experiences outside of the classroom.

Counseling Services also provide crisis intervention services, presentations about a variety of issues of concern to the campus community, and consultations with faculty and staff.

Disability Support Services

In Accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Holy Names University is committed to ensuring equal access to university programs and services for students with disabilities by facilitating reasonable accommodations that are determined on a case-by-case basis. Students with disabilities may request accommodations or academic adjustments at any time and should do so by contacting the coordinator of Disability Support Services (DSS).

In order to request accommodations, students must contact DSS, self-disclose to the Coordinator and submit documentation that supports the adjustments requested. When documentation is not immediately available, provisional accommodations will be considered and extended until eligibility has been determined. Documentation, including medical records and case notes are kept confidential and separate from a student’s academic records in accordance with FERPA and are not released without written permission to release.

Accommodations are facilitated by the DSS Coordinator in collaboration with the student and HNU faculty and staff. Changes in accommodation needs can be requested at any time and students should meet with the DSS Coordinator regularly to review individual accommodations’ efficacy and usefulness.

Students with disabilities have the right to request accommodations and academic adjustments at any time in accordance with federal, state and local law.

In addition to individualized accommodations, DSS provides referrals to community organizations, disability-specific support networks and assistive technology tools. For information about requesting accommodations and receiving disability-specific at HNU contact the Coordinator of Disability Support Services at dss@hnu.edu.

International Student Services

International Student Services provides non-academic support to the international community at Holy Names University in the form of immigration services, advising regarding lifestyle adjustment, and other services provided in collaboration with various departments within the campus. In valuing the cultures and perspectives of all HNU students and staff, we hope to further expose our community to global diversity and international education as a way of understanding others while continuing to grow together as an inclusive campus.

The International Student Advisor is required to report the status of current F-1 international students to the Department of Homeland Security; however any student is welcome to be involved in the events and services hosted by International Student Services.
