A Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Begins Within

Education and Community Collaborations

At Loyola University Chicago, equity begins with creating opportunities to cultivate and expand diverse and inclusive communities through advocacy, awareness, learning, and development. We create spaces for dialogue to occur through education. Each member of our student, faculty, staff, and alumni communities brings forth unique perspectives, strengths, and critical thinking that serve our Jesuit mission and commitment to diversity for the greater good while simultaneously supporting personal and professional development. Join us in fostering a transformative experience that honors diversity and social justice.

Our Shared Commitment

The end goal of diversity on our campuses is not simply a representation of the beauty of “otherness,” of diversity. Rather, we recognize a common unity that anchors and enlivens our commitment to inclusion and creates brave spaces for dialogue to happen, through initiatives that educate the masses. We will hold ourselves accountable to this intentional vision through fostering an integrated society. We will do so with the wisdom that each member of our student, faculty, and staff community brings their own unique perspectives, strengths, and critical inquiries to serve our mission. We will continuously evaluate our commitment to diversity through conscious engagement with its manifestation across the local and global world we live in today.
