Mission Statement

The Provost’s Office of Academic Diversity promotes an inclusive culture within Academic Affairs. The Office of Academic Diversity oversees faculty-related diversity, equity and inclusion efforts in line with the university's strategic plan, with a focus on creating and maintaining organizational change aligned with the efforts of Loyola's Anti-Racism Initiative.

The Faculty Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Liaison (DEIL) program advises academic units on best practices to recruit and retain underrepresented faculty, hold multiple DEI workshops for depts/schools across the University and serve as Diversity Advocates on search committees.
