Loyola University Chicago

Mission Integration

Institutional Examen

In the 2018-2019 academic year, more than 90 small groups across all campuses came together to explore and share how we live our Jesuit mission in this time and era at Loyola University Chicago. Nearly 800 students, faculty, and staff participated.

Their input is collected in Loyola’s Mission Priority Self-Study, and provides a current picture of our work in advancing the Jesuit educational mission. It indicates where there are opportunities to deepen our work and respond to the challenges of the future. From the process, priorities emerged around mission structure, programming, assessment and hiring.

These priorities provide a framework and direction for our 2025 strategic planning process that begins this fall. We encourage our community to review the Executive Summary and full Self-Study report as well as the Peer Visitor Committee report, which comes out of the committee’s review of the Self-Study and face-to-face meetings on our campuses.
