Message from the Provost

Welcome to the Loyola University Chicago Academic Affairs website. I’m Patrick Boyle, Interim Provost at Loyola. As Interim Provost and Chief Academic Officer, I have the privilege of overseeing the implementation of our academic and student development programs. The Office of the Provost coordinates with the Student Development Division to fulfill the university’s academic mission. Our primary goal is to deliver a transformative education in the Jesuit tradition in which students learn and develop as persons through rigorous learning in our classrooms, time for reflection, opportunities for engaged and experiential learning, and a compassion to act on what one has learned. I believe that the Catholic intellectual heritage and our Jesuit tradition provide an environment in which values-based learning can develop graduates who have commitment to lead, to serve, and to live extraordinary lives.
