Dean’s note

Esteemed SOE graduates,

You have been called and it is time to serve! You have been called to serve as teachers, administrators, counselors, psychologists, researchers, university professionals, and policy leaders when you are needed most. Although you are entering your professions when there is great uncertainty, remember what remains unchanged and steadfast. Your commitment to serve those who are marginalized is unchanged and steadfast. The rigor and quality of your preparation to create more equitable systems is unchanged and steadfast. Therefore, your mission is unchanged and steadfast---to be a person for others. Your commitment to this mission will transform the lives of people you will never know, and that's what it means to be Loyola in the world.

Congratulations Graduates!

Presenting the Class of 2021

Just as we do in person, we recognize and celebrate the achievements of our graduates of college, school, and institute. In addition to each virtual ceremony, you can find all student slides in our searchable database.

Candidates will be recognized by degree group then major in alpha order in the same order as the program book. Candidates will have their name read followed by interdisciplinary honors (if applicable)  and laudatory status (if applicable). Candidates receiving an additional degree will also have that degree recognized.
