Institute of Pastoral Studies

Visit Us

The best way to learn about the Institute of Pastoral Studies (IPS) is to visit us! We're located at Loyola's Water Tower Campus in the heart of downtown Chicago, just off Michigan Avenue. Register to attend an upcoming Open House or Information Session, or contact our office to schedule a class visit or an individual appointment.

Open Houses

Our Open Houses give you the opportunity to meet with faculty, current students, and alumni. You'll learn more about various IPS programs and discover the unique opportunities Loyola has to offer.

 Our next open house is in October. If you complete our request for information form, we'll send you a reminder about the event as well as keep you updated with other important application information. 

Information Sessions

Information sessions are an opportunity to learn more about the IPS community and our programs. They are typically smaller in scale than our Open Houses but you can gather similar information in a more intimate setting. We host both in-person and online information sessions. A full listing of our events can be found on our Events Calendar
