Mission Statement
The Provost’s Office of Academic Diversity promotes an inclusive culture that values diversity in Loyola's academic affairs. The Assistant Provost for Academic Diversity (APAD) is a faculty member who oversees faculty-directed diversity efforts in line with the university's strategic plan, with a focus on creating and maintaining organizational change. The APAD draws from best practices to create policy and programming that will enhance diversity equity, and inclusivity within academic affairs. In addition to advocating for diversity, equity, and inclusivity on numerous university committees, the APAD coordinates and delivers programming related to education, community building, and support.
