Vision & Mission


Division of Student Development Strategic Plan,

Goals, Objectives, Rationale, and Action Items



We are Chicago's Jesuit, Catholic University-- a diverse community seeking God in all things and working to expand knowledge in the service of humanity through learning, justice and faith.



At Loyola University Chicago, fellow students, faculty, staff, and administrators engage and support all students in discovering the values, skills, and competencies needed to enhance the intellectual, social, and spiritual growth of every student.  A collection of offices and departments offer developmental and sequential programs and services to support students and enrich their learning experience.  The Division of Student Development’s vision is to have nationally recognized programs and services that embolden, enrich, and engage students through a collection of Key Experiences.  We support learning environments needed to lead and serve in a diverse and changing world.  The Division of Student Development inspires involvement in a wide range of co-curricular pursuits that ignite the academic enterprise and services and that mirror the values of the core curriculum.  Our events and activities do more than support students; they also encourage the spiritual integration of prayer, reflection, and discernment into their busy academic and personal lives.



The mission of the Division of Student Development is to support a transformative education by offering programs and initiatives that aspire to provide unparalleled service to students, providing vision and leadership for a holistic student experience.
