WTCL Mission Statement
Water Tower Campus Life is a collaborative unit building community at Loyola University Chicago’s dynamic, urban campus in the heart of Chicago. We provide and promote transformative and diverse experiences that empower students to live out our Jesuit values.
As we strive to enhance the student experience at the Water Tower Campus, we envision that our campus will become a place where . . .
- all students – be they graduate or undergraduate, commuter or residential, transfer, returning or part-time – feel truly welcomed and a valued part of the community.
- a sense of pride is felt and is shared by all Loyolans.
- students engage in opportunities with a focus on Urban Issues in which they experience, examine and come to appreciate diverse perspectives.
Together, as members of the Water Tower Campus Life unit, we strive to exemplify the following values: Demonstrate
Striving to offer welcome, we embrace the practice of showing respect and generosity of spirit for all who enter through our doors.
Recognizing that our gifts are to be used in the service of others, we believe that it is essential to connect with and give back to the wider community.
- Holistic Education
Appreciating the multi-dimensional development of our students, we provide a well-rounded program of opportunities for growth.
- Faith and Spiritual Development
Honoring our Jesuit, Roman Catholic Tradition, we foster a safe and welcoming space where all are invited to express and explore their beliefs as they develop an adult spirituality.
Acknowledging that we are a multi-faceted community, we embrace difference and diversity in all forms and will strive to continuously be a safe space where we all learn about ourselves in the process of learning about others.
