Lewis University Announces Teach-Out Agreement to Support Oak Point University Students

ROMEOVILLE— Lewis University has agreed to be a Teach-Out institution for Oak Point University, who announced that they will officially close in April. This agreement ensures a smooth transition for Oak Point University students to Lewis University so they can continue their education and pursue their degree.

“This Teach-Out Agreement allows affected students to seamlessly continue their studies at Lewis University through graduation,” Dr. David Livingston, President of Lewis University, said. “It is a painful decision for all involved to have to close an institution. Our goal is to help mitigate this by supporting the students and their career aspirations to the best of our ability”.

Oak Point University, formerly Resurrection University, is a private, not-for-profit nursing and health sciences educational institution with campuses in Chicago and Oak Brook, Illinois. The university offers undergraduate and graduate programs in nursing, undergraduate programs in radiography, and business-to-business education.

“Lewis University is especially well positioned to serve in this role because of the significant overlap between our mutual nursing and healthcare programs and the fact that our Oak Brook campus is only a few blocks away from their Oak Brook location,” Livingston added.

Lewis University meets students where they are so the students can prepare for fulfilling careers. This includes supporting the needs of students impacted by the closure of Oak Point University. Lewis University will be hosting informational sessions for affected students to provide details about the Teach-Out Agreement and available resources.

Lewis University has also agreed to ensure the safekeeping and accessibility of Oak Point University student academic records and historical documentation. All transcript records will be housed at Lewis University.

Lewis University is an innovative Catholic university offering market-relevant undergraduate and graduate programs to 6,500 students. Sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, Lewis University is nationally recognized for preparing intellectually engaged, ethically grounded, and globally connected graduates who impact the world for the better.
