Loyola University Chicago

Neighborhood Initiatives

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Mission Statement

To foster a human-centered culture of belonging, we serve as a vocal advocate, engaged ally, and collaborative change agent. We empower faculty, staff, and leadership to champion inclusive excellence by connecting, consulting, coaching, and capacity building in support of igniting our students’ full human potential.


We are the modern Jesuit, Catholic university — free from unjust barriers where the lived experiences of all Ramblers are valued and their sense of belonging fuels a lifetime of success in service of the greater good.

Strategic Priorities

This plan is intended to be a North Star for the university in how we define diversity, equity, and inclusion work, and we hope you can see your role in it. This work is deeply embedded in Loyola’s institutional priorities, mission, and our shared Jesuit values.
