Diversity, Equity & Inclusion


Students at the Weekend of Excellence

The Graduate School at Loyola University Chicago values the diversity of its students and is committed to an inclusive environment for its graduate students. A diverse academic community is characterized by new perspectives and fresh methodological approaches to scientific, humanistic, and social science fields of study. It enhances the pursuit of knowledge and its contribution to our understanding of the world around us. Inclusion values open dialogue, mutual respect, and cultural competence. In harmony with the Jesuit principles of cura personalis (care of the whole person) and homonis pro aliis (people caring for others), inclusion affirms the dignity of all members of the Graduate School community and commits our graduates to put their knowledge, skills, and talents in the service of others. Accordingly, the Graduate School encourages the graduate programs under its jurisdiction to embrace diversity and strive for inclusion.
