Graduate School Outreach Services (GSOS) is a program designed to foster and promote community outreach along with service learning and engagement opportunities for graduate faculty, staff, students and alum.  

The goals of GSOS are:

GSOS also works with organizations and shelters that are diligently serving and meeting the needs of the families in their communities making a difference one step at a time.  The Graduate School Outreach Services program was launched May 2012, and since that time to the present we have become a beacon of light to this community and abroad. Through the outpouring of generosity and strong desire to give back to our community shown by Loyola University Chicago Faculty, Staff, Students, and Alum in 2012, we were able to lend a helping hand to over 600 families providing life sustaining necessities and contributing over 900 community service learning hours. 

Through sharing our time, talents, and other resources, we made a great impact in this community and abroad.  Our efforts to reflect and exemplify Loyola University Chicago’s long-term commitment to excellence by engaging, serving, and learning have paid off.
