Engaged Learning

University Requirement

EL and Civic Engagement

The Engaged Learning Requirement replaces the previous Civic Engagement/Leadership Values Requirement that was in the 2005-2012 Core.

In the 2005 - 2012 Core Curriculum, the values requirement of "Understanding Civic Engagement and/or Leadership" was the hands-on, service requirement in the Core.  This requirement has been broadened to Engaged Learning and is now a University requirement.   Any continuing student (defined as any Loyola student enrolled at the University prior to Fall 2012) who has completed his/her Civic Engagement requirement has also satisfied the new Engaged Learning requirement. However, if a continuing student has not yet completed the previous Civic Engagement requirement, they may now choose from a wider array of opportunities to satisfy the Engaged Learning requirement.
