Our philosophy on the role of graduate assistants
Loyola’s mission is to provide all of its students with a transformative education. Graduate assistants engaged in teaching and research advance this mission as part of their education and through their academic relationship with Loyola. Their role not only helps create a campus culture rich in scholarship, research, teaching, and mentorship, but it also enables them to gain valuable experience that their future employers are looking for. This makes them categorically students and not Loyola employees.
