Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity

Our students and faculty come from different backgrounds and bring diverse experiences to the classroom. But they also have much in common. They are kind; they help each other to succeed; they are ethical; and they strive to use their talents to serve their communities and contribute to society.

At Loyola University Chicago School of Law, our mission calls us to embrace our human differences and to recognize a common unity that anchors and enlivens our commitment to inclusion.  We support safe spaces for open and respectful dialogue; thoughtful initiatives that serve to educate our students, faculty, and staff; and a warm and welcoming environment that makes it possible for all individuals to thrive — regardless of their race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexuality, age, or social class.
