Andrew M. Greeley Center for Catholic Education

The Andrew M. Greeley Center for Catholic Education (GCCE) is co-directed by Dr. Michelle Lia and Dr. Debbie Sullivan. The first organization of its kind, GCCE is dedicated to supporting PK-12 teaching and learning in faith-based schools.


University-School Partnerships

The University-School Partners initiatives at Loyola University Chicago focus on connecting the Loyola community with public schools in Rogers Park and Edgewater. We strive to work with schools toward meeting academic, civic, and social-emotional learning goals. We work to build mutually beneficial relationships with our partner schools, where Loyola students, faculty, and staff learn from, engage in, and contribute to school communities. Loyola’s various University-School Partnership initiatives collectively serve more than 1000 Chicago Public School students in nine neighborhood CPS schools.


Loyola Cultural Institutions in Teacher Education (CITE) Partnership

Local museums and other informal learning institutions – including their education staff, collections, programming and pedagogical approaches – have been integrated as mutually beneficial partners in the Teaching, Learning and Leading with Schools & Communities (TLLSC) initial teacher preparation program.
