Teaching and Advising

Loyola students develop close working relationships with faculty members.

Our faculty and staff are significantly invested in YOU.

As a Loyola University Chicago student, you'll closely interact with your professors, your academic advisors, and other members of the Loyola community who are dedicated to helping you be successful in college.

One of Loyola's greatest assets is its outstanding faculty, with 93% of faculty members holding the highest academic degree in their respective fields. All of our distinguished faculty members are strongly committed to teaching and research. Undergraduate students benefit from small class sizes and a student-to-faculty ratio of 14:1. At Loyola, you'll never be just a number. Your professors will get to know you by name, will be available to meet with you outside of class, and will partner with you in service-learning and research projects.

In addition to forming close relationships with Loyola faculty members, our Academic Advising staff will be a helpful resource and solid support system for you throughout your entire educational career. All freshman and sophomore students are assigned to an advisor in First and Second Year Advising, while juniors and seniors work with an advisor in the college or school that hosts their major. Students with certain majors may also be assigned a faculty advisor, who provides specialized guidance in the student's area of study.

Additional advising resources at Loyola include Pre-Professional Advising for students interested in the pre-health and pre-law professions. The Career Development Center advising staff is available to meet with all students to discuss career planning and resources. Business students receive career advising through the University's Business Career Services.

Students participating in Loyola's Interdisciplinary Honors Program, Learning Communities, and intercollegiate athletic programs have access to other specialized advising resources.
