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


     12/18 - News About the News (Encore)

How can viewers distinguish between fact and fake news and is social media blurring the difference?
According to the 2018 Louisiana Survey, when it comes to trusting news organizations, more Louisiana residents put their faith in local media than national media outlets. Despite that trust, only 36 percent of the state’s news consumers say local news deals fairly with both sides.

So, why is there so much mistrust of the news media? Where are consumers primarily getting their news? How can viewers distinguish between fact and fake news and is social media blurring the difference? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on a special encore presentation of “News about the News” airing Wednesday, December 26 at 7pm on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE.
