Loyola University Chicago recognizes the importance of faculty both willing and eager to bring their diverse experiences, ideas, and perspectives to the classroom as we facilitate a transformative education for students from around the globe.  The Provost’s Office of Academic Diversity oversees diversity-related matters related to faculty and students. Using research on best practices, they create programming that enhances the classroom experience.  Work in this office can include, but is not limited to, providing strategies to diversify faculty hiring, faculty learning and development opportunities, working with academic leaders to address unit-specific challenges, and supporting essential partners across the University.
