Human Resources is excited to announce Loyola's participation in the fifth annual Million Mile Challenge from April 1 through 30! Throughout April, faculty and staff can record their minutes of movement to determine which institution is the most active. We define movement as any intentional exercise that causes a at least a moderate increase in breathing or heart rate.
