Panelist Bio

Tina Holland, Ph.D.
President, Our Lady of the Lake College

Dr. Tina S. Holland is the new President of Our Lady of the Lake College. She joined the Institution on April 22, 2014.

For nearly a century, Our Lady of the Lake College has blessed Louisiana with over 6,500 healthcare providers. To meet the increasing public health demands of a changing population and to address the shortages occurring in the healthcare professional ranks, the College is expanding its current program offerings.

Previously Dr. Holland served as Executive Vice President and Provost at Holy Cross College in Notre Dame, Indiana. She began her career at Holy Cross in 1993 as an Associate Professor in the Math Department, and spent over twenty years at the campus. Holland also designed, implemented and directed the college's Conditional Acceptance Program (CAP) – a developmental advising program for at-risk freshmen.

Dr. Holland earned her Ph.D. in Higher Education from Indiana State University and received her M.A. in International Relations from the University of San Diego. Before attending graduate school she graduated from the United States Naval Academy and served as an aviation intelligence officer in the United States Marine Corps.

She is an avid fan of minor league baseball, a historian of major league baseball and is active with the Society for American Baseball Research.

For 29 years she has been married to Peter, who was also in the Marine Corps. They have four grown children.

Current Topic

     03/18 - Making Schools Safe

Where does Louisiana stand in this national discussion?
The school shooting in Broward County Florida that took the lives of 17 people has reignited the debate over how to make our schools safe. Energized students nationwide are calling for restricted access to certain guns. Congress is considering broader background checks and age limits on gun purchases. President Donald Trump is most enthusiastic about training school staff members to carry concealed weapons.

Where does Louisiana stand in this national discussion? How would gun control proposals affect the 45% of Louisianans who own guns? What mental health services are available to prevent teenagers from acting out violently? What increased security measures should schools take and how much will they cost? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Making Schools Safe” airing Wednesday, March 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB and WLAE in New Orleans. (Taping Tuesday, March 27.)
