Facilitate Black student, faculty, and staff success

Facilitate Black Success

Facilitate Black student, faculty, and staff success

The ongoing strategies to reach this goal include:

  • Establish an Office of Black Student Success. If we establish a hub for supporting Black undergraduate and graduate students at Loyola University Chicago, then we will be able to ensure structural change in practices that impact Black students that protect, mentor, provide access to resources, and ongoing support for navigating the campus environment, which will result in increased reports of belonging and connectedness and subsequent improved 4- and 6-year graduation rates for Black students.
  • Establish consistent inclusive practices and procedures for hiring new faculty. Create clear guidelines and support for recruiting a diverse faculty pool and conducting faculty searches using a fair and equitable process. STRATEGY TO BE SET FOR SPRING 2022
  • Implement evidence-based practices for retaining faculty of color. Provide supports, including professional development and mentoring, for faculty of color that keep them at Loyola, and thriving, after they are hired. STRATEGY TO BE SET FOR FALL 2021
  • Ensure Black students, staff and faculty have access to inclusive wellness resources centered in intersectionality and cultural humility. Continued promotion of intersectionality and inclusion best practices for the campus community. STRATEGY TO BE SET FOR FALL 2021
