The People's Institute


SAVE THE DATE: February 12th–14th, 2016!

Sponsored by the Student Leadership Development and the department of Student Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, The People's Institute will be held from Friday, February 12th through Sunday, February 14th, 2016. TPI will be hosted at the Loyola University Retreat & Ecology Campus (LUREC).

TPI aims to empower students to explore and reflect upon the interconnection between leadership and social justice. In the spirit of Jesuit education, TPI is an exciting leadership opportunity for students at Loyola University Chicago. This program is designed to raise awareness, examine privilege and responsibility, engage in self-exploration regarding multiple identities, and learn skills to create positive social change.

The students who are selected to participate in this free experience will have demonstrated self-motivation and a willingness to learn and share about their lived experiences, while engaging in reflection and dialogue with a diverse cross section of our campus. Because the sponsoring departments cover all costs for participants, and there is a limit to how many students can participate, there is an application process.


The application to participate is now live! Click here to apply for the People's Institute 2016.


The priority application deadline is Thursday, November 12th. Although we may accept applications through January 20th, spaces typically fill before that point. In that case, applications submitted by November 12th will receive priority consideration.
