About Our Approach to Partnership

Loyola University Chicago's Center for Engaged Learning, Teaching, & Scholarship approaches partnerships with employers and community organizations as reciprocal and mutually beneficial. The goal of our partnerships is not only for our students to learn by serving as volunteers, interns, or researchers, but also for the work of students to contribute in valuable ways to the work of our partner organizations.

We consider our partner organizations to be co-educators of our students, and in this role, we rely upon them to provide the necessary orientation, training, and supervision required for our students to complete their assigned responsibilities. We expect that our partners will regard the safety of our students as a priority equal to that of their own employees and clients. 

Through our partnerships, the Center for Engaged Learning, Teaching, & Scholarship hopes to fulfill Loyola’s mission of “expanding knowledge in the service of humanity through learning, justice and faith,” and to support the efforts of our employer/community partners as well.
