The UIW community gathered together on Monday, Aug. 3, in Our Lady’s Chapel for a special mass honoring Dr. Louis Agnese’s 30th anniversary.  Dr. Agnese arrived on the Incarnate Word campus in August 1985. At that time, Incarnate Word College offered 56 majors with an enrollment under 1,300.  Today, UIW offers 80 academic programs including doctoral and professional programs serving nearly 10,000 students.

Mass of the Holy Spirit
In keeping with a long tradition dating from the founding of the great European universities in the Middle Ages, UIW celebrates the Mass of the Holy Spirit at the start of each academic year. During the liturgy we ask for the inspiration, guidance, and presence of God's Spirit on all of our campus activities. This festive event gathers the entire university community together to rededicate ourselves to UIW's mission, to renew friendships, and to welcome new members. The Mass of the Holy Spirit will be celebrated on Wednesday, Aug. 26 at noon in Our Lady's Chapel.
