Chicago The neighborly impact


Together, Loyola's three Chicagoland campuses—Lake Shore, Water Tower, and Health Sciences—have built longstanding partnerships across our city and suburbs. Loyola has worked to understand and meet the needs of community organizations and businesses, as well as the needs of our next-door neighbors. These institutional and personal relationships place Loyola in the unique position to provide services and offer support to these communities along with many others in the Chicago area.
